I am about to introduce you to one of the most beautiful places my eyes have ever laid eye on: Giethoorn, located in the Netherlands.

Giethoorn gained popularity as the 'town with no roads' or also known as 'Holland's Venice'; I came across this on a travel magazine before even moving to the Netherlands, and was drawn to visit it from the very first glance! I liked the idea of having houses located between water canals and the idea of boats as a way of transportation. It felt new to me, and wanted to explore it.

So I took the chance when my friend Sara visited the Netherlands for a 12 days trip, and decided to go explore Giethoorn together, and what we saw was absolutely beautiful.

The day started by taking a train towards Steenwijk - small dutch town located in Overijssel - and from there we took bus number 70 and stopped on the stop named Holland's Venice, which is shortly after the main Giethoorn stop. From there we had to walk a couple of meters until we managed to get to the part of the town which has no roads! and we were all mesmerized by how beautifully green and clean the place looked.

I strongly recommend all of you who would be visiting the Netherlands to take the time and go explore this place! Absolutely worth every second.

I will now leave you with a few photographs captured by my best friend Sara Al Hashar :)
