Well once in a while we need a rest or a time out. For me the Christmas period was one of those periods. Even though I like the sphere of Christmas with the Christmas tree, the lights everywhere, the festive atmosphere, I really wanted to be away for a few days to relax and enjoy myself somewhere else. Together with a friend I went for a short holiday to Noordwijk and Leiden. Even though it was cold and windy, it was a pleasant stay. Noordwijk is a little town at the coast of the North Sea in the province Zuid-Holland. The first day was a rainy day so we went to a beachclub drinking hot chocolate.
The next day was a sunny day but cold. Leiden is a place I wanted to visit for a long time. To stroll around in the streets of the center was very nice. I really liked the old buildings, beautiful houses, the canals, the windmills. The Royal Museum of Antiquities is very interesting and really worth a visit. Even though you didn’t study history like I did.
