The Netherlands List

I spent November 2012 - November 2013 living in the Netherlands, and I tried to see as much of the country as possible. I made this list in December 2012 to give myself a idea of what I should aim to see and do. I did everything except visit the Science Museum in Amsterdam, which I was okay with in the end, as it is aim more for children.

I recommend checking all of these lovely activities and cities below, but for more details see these posts:
