Holland, Amsterdam, Europe

Published @ 17th Nov 2017

Our third destination of the Europe tour, the tour consisted of 6 countries in total.

Here we went, to Holland and Amsterdam. Holland is a region and former province on the western coast of the Netherlands. The name Holland is also frequently used to informally refer to the whole of the country of the Netherlands.

It was during winter and xmas when we reached to Holland, Amsterdam. One is able to see that all the leaves of the trees have fallen. Leaving it bare. And the xmas tree with decorations and lights.

Infront of the house, you can see that there are many pairs of clog shoes being glued onto the house windows. Why? Its to let tourist know that it is a clog shoe house.
