Zaandam & Zaanse Schans

Updated: 4 days ago

Day trip to two nearby towns...

Zaandam (the large building that looks like lots of buildings stacked together is a hotel):

Zaanse Schans - Picturesque windmills, and a step-back-in-time little village (many of the buildings were relocated there from the wider region for preservation). There's also a chocolate factory, so the air smells delicious.

Also in Zaanse Schans I watched a demo of clog making - traditional style and how they make them today - and tried on some wooden shoes. (Despite what they told us at the shop... I didn't find them comfortable!)
