A little girl in Amsterdam

Once upon a time, in the enchanting city of Amsterdam, there lived a little girl named Lily. She had curly golden hair, sparkling blue eyes, and a heart full of curiosity. Lily lived with her parents in a small house near one of the picturesque canals that flowed through the city. One sunny morning, while her parents were busy preparing for a festive event, Lily decided to embark on her own little adventure.

With an air of excitement, Lily skipped down the winding streets, following her whims wherever they took her. But as she wandered deeper into the bustling city, her cheerful enthusiasm slowly turned into confusion. The tall, colorful buildings and the meandering canals seemed to blur together, and Lily realized she had lost her way.

Let me spin you a tale of the canals of Amsterdam, where history flows as freely as the water!

Once upon a time, in the city of bicycles and stroopwafels, there were three majestic canals: Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht. These canals weren’t just waterways; they were the lifeblood of Amsterdam, each with its own distinct personality.

Herengracht, also known as the Patrician’s Canal, was where the wealthy and influential patricians of Amsterdam resided. Picture-perfect mansions lined its banks, each one more opulent than the last. Legend has it that if you listen closely on a quiet night, you can still hear the echoes of their extravagant parties drifting across the water.


Legend has it that Vianden Castle in Luxembourg is haunted by the ghost of a White Lady. According to the tale, she was a noblewoman who fell in love with a commoner.

Ah, Kinderdijk – the land of windmills and wonder! Picture yourself in the heart of the Netherlands, surrounded by endless green meadows and glistening waterways. Now add in the iconic sight of rows upon rows of majestic windmills gently swaying in the breeze – that’s Kinderdijk for you!

So, why is Kinderdijk such a fantastic place to visit? Well, it’s like stepping into a living, breathing storybook of Dutch ingenuity and resilience. You see, back in the day, this picturesque landscape was prone to flooding, thanks to the intricate network of rivers and lakes that crisscrossed the region. But fear not! The industrious Dutch had a trick up their sleeve – windmills!



Let me regale you with the captivating tale of how Keukenhof bloomed into one of the world’s most magnificent gardens – a story that’s as colorful as the tulip fields themselves!

Once upon a time, in the heart of the Netherlands, there existed a humble hunting ground called Keukenhof, which translates to “Kitchen Garden” in English. But this wasn’t just any garden; it was a place of beauty and wonder, hidden away from the world like a well-kept secret.

Legend has it that Keukenhof began its transformation in the mid-20th century, when a group of visionary individuals came together with a bold idea – to create a garden unlike any other, a place where the vibrant colors of spring would burst forth in all their glory.

The caves of Remouchamps

A substantial part of Belgium is covered by Ardennes (French: Ardenne; Dutch: Ardennen), a region of extensive forests, hills and ridges. You can do a lot of fun things there such as walking, cycling, fishing, climbing, canoeing and kayaking. What you can also do is just to enjoy beautiful nature. For instance, you may decide to visit some of the caves. We visited the caves of Remouchamps (French: Grottes de Remouchamps; Dutch: Grotten van Remouchamps) and we did not regret.

Once upon a time, in a small town called Baarle Nassau, there lived two friendly neighbors – the Dutch and the Belgians. Legend has it that long ago, these neighbors wanted to share their land, but they couldn’t agree on where the borders should be drawn.



There are several lava caves in Iceland. Raufarhólshellir is one the longest and the best-known ones. By visiting this cave you can get a feeling of inner workings of a volcanic eruption that occured about 5200 years ago.

Kerið is not just a stunning lake. It is a lake inside of a volcanic caldera (a caldera is the center of a volcano). The water is a nearly neon blue and it is surrounded by rare red volcanic rock.

The area around Kerið is not hilly anymore so it is hard to imagine that thousands of years ago this lake was an active volcano.



This waterfall is perhaps the most famous in Iceland. It is like a dream come true! Here you have a possibility to look at the water “from inside” i.e. you can walk underneath it.
