Everything you hear about Holland (the other name for the country) is probably true, and makes it one of the most photogenic countries in the world. The Dutch still wear wooden shoes occasionally, but not in cities. The 19 heritage windmills with lattice wooden sails are still turning merrily. And yes, the tulips flowering in vast fields are one of the most beautiful sights we ever saw anywhere.
They make their own wines in the Maastricht region, where the river flows through idyllic countryside. The Drenthe region is famous for it’s megalithic burial chambers comprising huge boulders in large piles. This would be a challenging task even with modern equipment. Archeologists believe glaciers dragged them into Holland. There is a good chance of still finding one underground, but not beneath these poppies.
