Travel: Windmill Zaandam Amsterdam

I have always been fascinated by windmills back in my primary school years. This time I have never imagined to see a real one here in Holland. Welcome to Zaandam Amsterdam! It's a city in the Netherlands in the province of North Holland. It is the main city of the municipality of Zaanstad. 
In the Golden Age, Zaandam served as a large milling centre. Thousands of windmills powered saws the were processing Scandinavian wood for shipbuilding and paper industries. One of which we have visited was the Het Jonge Schaap. We were also given the chance to see the inside of the windmill & got a brief knowledge of its mechanics. Outside we enjoyed there hot chocolate milk & fresh herring with bread. Windmills are characteristic of the Dutch landscape and a symbol of the Dutch struggle with water. Holland Windmills - such an unforgettable tourist destination!

Travel: Marken Amsterdam

Marken is a village in the province of North Holland in the Netherlands with a population of 1810 in the municipality of Waterland. The wooden houses of Marken are the tourist attraction popular in Amsterdam. If you're in Marken, you'll have to visit the famous Klompen Shoe Factory (Traditional Clogs) as they remain today in use as protective footwear in agriculture and in some factories and mines. I just love the natural ambience of this place and their picturesque sceneries of this little community. You would love just to spend a day strolling around the their garden landscape and have some picnic along the lakeside or go for sunset watching with a bubbly champagne.
