Overijssel, Netherlands


After deciding it was too cold to stay in the windy village, we left Zaanse Schans (the parking rate was a bomb). We made our way to Giethoorn, a mostly car-free village in Overijssel. Before the trip, we imagined the place lushly covered in greenery and blooming flowers. Alas, imagination is always thicker than reality! In this season (when we both thought it should almost be spring!), no flower (at all) was in sight. The bald branches didn’t even show any sign of green leaves. We didn’t come in the right season (bingo!). The plus side of it was — there were so few visitors that it seemed like we had the whole village to ourselves (hooray!).

It’s another kind of experience!
