The Netherlands: Zaanse Schans (2nd visit)

Visiting Zaanse Schans for the second time.

I still find this place very nice. I find it amusing to be able to get near to the famous Dutch windmills and learn their history. From what I learned, every windmill have its own name. The dutchies are naming their mills according to the purpose or something that means a lot for them, which I think is cool.

Finally, we are now on time when visiting Zaanse Schans. We were early and we have the chance to roam around and see all of the attractions.

Weather at this time was kinda preferable, it’s still cold (like always) but at least no rain which is a win!

This is the time where we were able to see how the clogs were made. Its kinda cool how they made those wooden shoes.

We also went to the cheese store and tasted like all kinds of cheese that Holland can actually offer.

We also went inside a windmill and see how the mill works,  plus we can also buy the nice cinnamon candy and cookies like the speculaas.
