    Fondest memory: Here I am at a clog factory in Volendam.


    Don't leave for home without buying some of these clogs as souvenirs. The things here are relatively inexpensive although it would be wise to compare prices first before grabbing your favorite souvenir, dutch clogs et al. Many stores in Volendam stock the same products but quote different prices!

    So remember, shop around first.

    One IMPORTANT tip: After comparing prices, I realized that it costs 10 Guilders LESSER if you were to buy the clogs here vis-a-vis buying the same pair in Amsterdam!!!

    Favorite thing: Visit the quaint fishing village of Volendam!

    Fondest memory: Volendam, a fishing village founded in the year 1200 boasts of a lovely picturesque harbor (see pic below). The livelihood of the villagers here depend to a large extent on the tourist trade... Thankfully, the throngs of tourists who conscientiously flock by the THOUSANDS annually to Volendam to get a taste of what quaint Dutch village life is like - never cease.

    Favorite thing: You must see redlight area. It's so unique.

    Also the canals are nice worth of seeing.
    Little village called Volendam, 25 kms from Amsterdam is really nice place in the middle of nature. It's a sea city, and with that I mean that it lives from the sea. It has really nice views.

    Volendam

    Favorite thing: Visit Volendam, it's a real little touristy town - an old fishing village I'm told. There were plenty of great looking cafes and restaurants here...yum!

    Favorite thing: Visit a small village called Volledam, in the countryside near Amsterdam, you'll discover the netherlanders as they are.

    Fondest memory: Floriade is a 'Flower Park' 20 minutes from Amsterdam. Simply amazing.

    Fondest memory: This picture was taken during our boat trip from Marken to Volendam...It took about half an hour...The weather was nice and we could find nice boats, as this typical old one, on our way...
