Windmills, clogs & cheese - Zaanse Schans

When we first came to Holland for a holiday in 2008, we made the short trip from where we were staying in Amsterdam to Zaanse Schans - because of course,  a visit to the Netherlands wouldn't be complete without some windmill spotting.

Since moving here last year, I've been to Kinderdijk more times then I can remember with a few of our visitors. Although it's lovely there, we were keen to go somewhere different for some windmill spotting with our visiting friends from not-so-flatland and decided to go back to Zaanse Schans. It's about 1.5 hours from where we live (not far by Aussie standards but practically the other side of the country here!) so we made a day trip out of it.

A bit had changed in the 3.5 years since we had last visited - there were new museums and it was definitely a lot busier (the cheese tasting was just as good as last time though!!!). We'd also changed a lot as well - no longer just the 2 of us...

But now a family of 3 :-)
