Danielle’s birthday trip would not have been complete without getting out to the Dutch countryside and seeing some windmills. We took a train from Amsterdam to the small town of Zandaam, which alone is worth a visit. It’s home to some very unique, Lego-style architecture with lots of shops and cafes. From there we took a short bus ride to Zaanse Schans, the small village spotted with windmills. It gave us a very different perspective on the Netherlands and were so glad we got to experience it and eat some great cheese!
