Tulips & Windmills of Netherlands & Belgium 2013
What a fabulous river cruise with Viking River. We loved exploring the small river towns and learning about the windmills and extensive dyke and canal systems that keep the area above water. Some of the windmills have been in operation since the 17th century with amazing craftsmanship and construction. We also were able to saturate ourselves into some World War 2 history, as we explored Arnhem and the battlefield landing areas of the 82nd Airborne Division during Operation Market Garden. It was a wonderful trip full of history, great food, and wonderful Belgian beers and chocolate waffles.
