Explore Holland

Holland_Windmill.jpgTo some, Holland is the home of the windmill. To others it’s all about wooden shoes and cheese. All three are correct of course, but don’t be fooled. It may be a small country but there is a lot for you to discover…. ๐Ÿ™‚

Your holiday

So is your family visitingย Holland this year? Would you like to know what’s so great about it? Decide for yourself what things you’d like to do when you get there? Well, you’ve come to the right place… ๐Ÿ™‚

Did you know that…

Officially, Holland is really called The Netherlands. Most people call it Holland though, so I’m going to stick to calling it just that…. ๐Ÿ™‚

About My Travel Kit

The next few pages about Holland are some samples taken from My Travel Kit for Holland, which has been written especially for young people like you.

My Travel Kit for Holland is full of interesting stories about the Dutch and includes lots of fun facts, maps and games, and it also has a diary to keep while away on holiday. ย It’s not really possible to put everything from My Travel Kit for Holland here on the website, but I hope that these pages will give you some ideas of what you might like to do and see.

Well, Holland obviously… ๐Ÿ™‚ But where exactly in Holland? To help you make up your mind, I’ve divided these Holland pages into three sections for you to explore. Check out the ‘Know’ section to learn a little bit more about the country, and why it is such a great place. Then take a look at ‘Visit’, which tells you which are the must-see and best-loved places. ย And finally, check out what to ‘Do’ when you get there. To be honest, the list could have been 10 times longer than it is, but I promise that these are the most popular things young people like to do when they are in Holland.

I really hope you’ll be inspired. Whatever you choose to do, have a really great time…. ๐Ÿ™‚
