A free trip to the Netherlands

Dutch KLM houses

Congratulations, you’ve just won a free trip to the Netherlands!

They say God made the world, but the Dutch made Holland. With over a quarter of its surface below sea level the Dutch leave nothing to chance. Instead they create their own nature and this makes the Netherlands a beautiful and fascinating place.

I had the privilege of living there for three years in a town called Wassenaar, which is located directly between Amsterdam and the Hague. I could sit here all night and gush about how great it was to live there, or you can see for yourself…

There’s no need to clean out the fridge, pack a suitcase or find a sitter for the dog, because you’ll only be gone for ten minutes… So sit back, press play and enjoy your trip.

  1. Hi Maggie. Nice video…very informative..

  2. This reminds me of the movies we watched in grammar school!

  3. I was just about to say “when are we going”?

  4. Congratulations with your free trip, Maggie. I wish you a good time : )

    Greetings, Summer

  5. i can relate to this post, I think Holland is great and I also had three great years too. Loved cycling edpecially from home in Voorschoten to our favourite beach Wassensarslag and particularly liked the city of Leiden.

  6. I have no excuses. It’s just across the water, and I love cheese and tulips.

  7. I love this style of education video. So cute, but so informative. I’ve always loved Holland, wooden shoes, and tulip stories … and tulips are a favorite of mine. We learned about Dutch Tulip Mania when the beanie baby craze was so big here. Thanks for the tour, Maggie! I watched all of it.

  8. Is it wrong I never even thought about “cheese”! lol! Very informative in a fun way! 🙂

  9. i so enjoyed this!! especially now, thinking about our sand dunes…..and how the ocean joined the bay!!

    it’s a beautiful place and hopefully well protected!!

  10. I’m so pleased… everyone is a winner. I love virtual trips I can take in my lunch break… I think my first thought was Holland > clogs… tulips and windmills. It appeals to me because I so like neat 🙂

  11. I have fallen in love with Holland.
