Zaandam

Just a little ways from the city were some historic windmills mixed with small workshops and stores. Strong gusts shouldn't have been a surprise, but the arrival of snow certainly was!

Amsterdam

This busy city made for a lively stroll day and especially night. Check twice for bikes!

Königswinter

Although the promised castle was nowhere to be seen due to the dense fog, the upside was an almost spookingly silent walk into the mountains.

Aachen

Spent most of the day relaxing at a divine thermal spa. An all time high was reached in the sauna room when a staff member came in unannounced and pulled out fresh baked cookies from what looked to be an ordinary heater.

Cologne

The dreary mood from perpetual rain and gray skies were promptly forgotten upon entering a German Christmas market. All kinds of comfort foods could be found in the numerous stalls and breweries.
