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.
