The Netherlands offers a unique blend of rural, traditional
beauty and vibrant culture. Occupying a delta at the
confluence of three major rivers where they empty into
the North Sea, it is truly a water world: canals, coast and
lakes are never far from view.
Fit also makes an ideal destination for cycling, an integral
mode of transport among the Dutch themselves, and many
visitors plan their trips around the extensive infrastructure
for two-wheeled travel.
Holland (as the country is alternatively referred to) is also
a deeply cosmopolitan place where museums overflow
with paintings from its Golden Age and a cavalcade of
festivals showcase performing artists from within and beyond
its borders. Added to this is an eye-opening nightlife
scene in cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The object
of all their scrupulous planning, it seems, is to share their
enjoyment of life.
