    We had lunch in one of the local restaurants in the harbor, and the fish was excellent. I am sorry that I don’t remember the name, but they all looked pretty good to me…

  • Transportation | Netherlands > Texel
    Updated at May 22,2013

    The next day we woke up early (again), and drove to Den Helder. From there we took the ferry (departure every hour) to the Island of Texel. It’s a 20 minute cruise, and you arrive at the harbor in Oudeschild.

    We left Haarelm in the afternoon, and arrived and hour later at Hencbroek, a village 4 Km east of Heerhugowaard, where we spent the night.

  • Transportation | Netherlands > Giethoorn
    Updated at May 22,2013

    We left our hotel room, got in to the car and headed to the village of Giethoorn (150 Km). We drove for 2 hours, passing through the giant dam and arrived at the village before noon.

  • Transportation | Netherlands > Schiphol
    Updated at May 22,2013

    We landed in Amsterdam (Schiphol Airport) on 11:45. We left the airport around 13:00 with a rental car. There are also intercity and sprinter trains between Amsterdam and Haarlem Central Station almost every 10 minutes. From Amsterdam, it's a 15 minute trip, and the price is 3.80€. Taking the train from Schiphol directly, you’ll have to change lines at Amsterdam Sloterdijk. With a car the drive was about 20 minutes.

    Favorite mode of transportation? Every Amsterdammer would say the bike: they're affordable, everyone has one, and they're convenient. 

  • Transportation | Netherlands > Amsterdam, The Netherlands > Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
    Updated at Jun 27,2013

    I arrived to the Schipol airport around afternoon time. The airport was very easy to navigate my way around. The faster and easier way to get to your destination however, would probably be the train. Train tickets for domestic travel can be purchased from the yellow ticket machines near the platforms at Schiphol Plaza.

    I took a train to Amsterdam Zuid station, and from there I took a local taxi. Taxis are very expensive in Amsterdam, and it's likely that even a short drive will rip you off.
