If Eindhoven has its famous Glow festival, Amsterdam has its Amsterdam Light Festival. This is one of the things you must see when visiting Amsterdam this autumn and winter.
Almost ten years ago I set sails in Leiden, a small little city, near Den Haag and Schiphol airport which has vibrant characters and charismas. I was directly in love with the city and still do. My first encounter with Leiden went even way back than 2007, when I lived there as an international student. It was in 2004, when my eyes had not only been enchanted by the lovely small canals of the Nieuwe-Rijn but also by a man, who now is my husband. However, I am not going to tell you about my love life through this blog, I am going to tell you why Leiden has to be one of your primary destinations when visiting the Netherlands.
