Day 2

15.3.2018 (Thursday)

Zandam, Netherlands

Zaanse Schans

The second day of our trip. We picked up rental car at Amsterdam downtown. It was a compact Nissan Micra with built-in GPS (we considered this a bonus!). The only thing I remember about the middle-aged man who helped us in the rental process was his very pointed nose (I just don’t know why), a friendly guy, tho.

When everything was finally sorted out, we left the garage happily, and set out for our first destination of the day: Zaanse Schans. Although rather touristy, it’s a place not to be missed. It was a windy (and particularly cold) day, we put on the thickest jacket we could find in our luggage. We enjoyed every moment spent in this neighbourhood of Zaandam. Historic windmills and distinctive green wooden houses were both iconic structures of the village. Thrilled by the uniqueness of this village, we wandered around to explore some interactive exhibits and demonstrations. Oh, not to forget, do take some photos in those wooden clog displayed!
