Impressions of Leiden, Netherlands – 1st Visit

Windmill, Leiden, Netherlands

Windmill, Leiden, Netherlands

I am fascinated by windmills old and new so you’ll have to bear with me as they will be showing up quite frequently especially in the Netherlands blogs. So above is one of the many windmills you will see in the next few blogs. 🙂

Same windmill but from a closer, awesomer view!

The sun was kind to us and decided to peek out a little bit for a few nice pictures.

I really liked the colors and lighting in this picture. The blue sky dotted with black clouds made for a really nice picture.

Beautiful architecture!

Some of the really nice architecture in Leiden. This building was from the 1800’s.

One of my missions: if there’s a new coffee place I must try it. 🙂 The picture is blurry probably because I hadn’t actually drank it yet. I must have really needed it!

Leiden Centraal, a place that we would visit often as it’s one of the major train stations where you switch to go just about anywhere else.

Strange picture I know but I was fascinated by this...

I was fascinated by the bathroom in Leiden Centraal because of these soap, water, air spouts but, of course, they didn’t actually work so can’t give you a review on it. Looks cool though.

Rainbow at the end of our day!

  1. Hi Veronica,

    Leiden is a nice place isn’t.
    Great pictures also. Hope you have fun in Canada.

    Greetings from still a cold Netherlands

    • Hi Christian and Marjolein,
      Yes, I quite liked Leiden. It’s just enough of a city to have everything you want and need but no so big as to put you off. 🙂 We’re having fun here in Canada now and eventually those blogs will be coming but I have to catch up with our adventures while we were in NL first. Have you guys started to plan your next big trip yet? Have any ideas where you might want to go? Take care and stay in touch, Veronica & Matt

  2. Sounds lovely, Ron.
