Beautiful Holland, a Souvenir

Weather in the Netherlands is unpredictable, even in spring and summer, the best travel seasons. Imagine having friends or family over. They are here for a long weekend, a week and you have scheduled a different activity for each day. It’s quite a tight schedule, because there  is a lot to see and show in the Netherlands. Difficult to change the planning. And there you are in the midst of the tulip fields and it’s raining cats and dogs. And, the day you are visiting the Houses of parliament in The Hague, there is a construction going on right in front of that famous 13th century hall… No way you’re going to get that picture perfect.

But there is a book. A book called Beautiful Holland. It’s the perfect souvenir. Great quality images and nice information on what to see and do in the Netherlands. The lively pictures bring you in a holiday mood: you just want to plan your trip to that place in beautiful Holland. My favourite is the image of the roof tops of the Glass City, the Holland greenhouses in the Westland. Not just because it is one of my favourite regions, the image of the mysterious light…it’s fantastic.

Beautiful Holland  also is a bit interactive. You install the Layar app, screen a page with the Layar icon and get to see a video. The Netherlands in your livingroom, I call it. Great as coffee table book or to get some inspiration for a trip to Holland.

Yes, I also get inspired through this book.

I finally made that trip to Eindhoven to see the luminescent bicycle path inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s painting Starry Night.
