Somewhere along the dijks near muiden, I discovered a cool spot lying in serene abandon and took some long exposures of my view.
After getting my dutch drivers license, I followed the most logical next step – I started driving. To say I am addicted would be an understatement as I ended up driving almost 5000kms in just 5 weekends. Thats more driving I did in a month than I ever did in my entire lifetime.
The beauty that the dutch dutch countryside is, serves to only increase my desire to explore even more. The supply of beautiful places reachable by road in short time, is simply endless. Words do no justice so here are some pictures.
Spijkerboor – one of my favorites where I reached by picking a random spot on the map
Leylestad – The dutch dub it as the most boring place and I find it serene.

This year I got a chance to see Keukenhof again but from a different and non-touristic perspective when a friend offered to drive me around the fields outside of the touristic keukenhof area. Although the look of the flowers remain the same, the experience was drastically different.
After not having travelled anywhere outside Amsterdam for over a month, I was restless. It was at 2 PM, on a lazy saturday, I decided that I had to do get out and do something. But given that it gets dark by 4.30 PM during winters, I was left with one choice of place – Zandvoort beach, which was only an hour away by public transportation and I had absolutely no complaints about it, for I can spend days just watching the waves.
I reached just in time to be able to capture some amazing beach-scapes, self portraits and few long exposures.
