Much of the Netherlands lies leagues below sea level. On one level I knew this but traveling there and actually seeing several different cities and the leaning of the buildings as they struggled to stand straight and tall in the sand, it really dawned on me that I was literally walking under the sea. Not really but it was an impressive thought that everything i walked on had once been under water. I understood after visiting several cities that the Dutch really were born of the sea. I stayed in Wassanaar near a windmil, visited the Hague, Edam-Volendam, Leiden, Delft, Haarlem, and a few other surrounding cities. It was amazing and so different from my visit to Amsterdam. I was super happy to have been able to get back there and explore areas that I had not been to before. I hope you enjoy.
