I always love to spend my free time with traveling, as I believe that it is the best way to develop yourself as a person. There is always something fun to learn, and exciting people to meet!
Last weekend, I spend it in Zaandam, a city which is located in North Holland. We visited the Zaanse Schans which is a very popular windmill destination here in the Netherlands, as it is the location where a collection of functioning saw mills, oil mills, a spice mill and many more interesting historical events/places - and not to mention that the view there is unbelievably beautiful!
Zaandam ( I like to call it the Ducth lazy town due to its colorful and unique architecture ) is the topic for today's travel post :)
In addition to the strange smell, the architecture of the central station fits well with the rest of the theme around the city. It was noticed that green was a very central theme in Zaandam

One of the highlights in Zaandam is the building at which the Inntel hotel is located, as it consists of 70 small colorful houses (mainly green again!) on top of each other. The hotel is a very popular attraction for tourists because of its architecture. I was of course drawn into staying at the hotel (which is by the way the coolest hotel I have stayed in during my travels in the Netherlands).
The hotel itself is located directly in front of the central station, and is in the heart of the center, making it an ideal place to stay when visiting Zaandam. The bus station is also a 2 minute walk from the entrance of the hotel and has connections to the Zaanse Schans which is very convenient for tourists.
