We had one free day in Amsterdam city, what are we going to do with it? Let’s go to some of the more well-known attractions like the one that was shown here⇓ the I AMSTERDAM sign, a must for a photo shoot. As we couldn’t fit in too many places to go in a day, we will only be visiting the Rijksmuseum and have a ride in the canal cruise, where we can see Amsterdam at a different eye level.
Still thinking of where to go in South Holland but only have limited time. This post will be covering 3 places which we felt that is a must to visit, one of it would be Kinderdijk and 2 places in Rotterdam. A little background of the places before we move on, Kinderdijk is one of the famous UNESCO world heritage in Netherlands, and Rotterdam the second largest city after Amsterdam, a young and vibrant city with bold and modern architectures.
On the 3rd day of our tour, we were heading to the South Shore, it was a wet and windy experience. We stopped by 2 famous Waterfalls, the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano and Reynisfjara Beach(Black sand beach). It was a long and yet fulfilling day, whereby we got to witness the stunning landscape of the southern part of Iceland, every turn on the road is picturesque.
As the places we covered is quite a long list, I will not put them up in an individual post. It will be based on our Itinerary, and places we covered on that day. A little introduction of my tour, we booked our local guided tour online a few months before we depart for Iceland. Initially, we tried to join another tour agency but in the end, the tour date was cancelled, and we found this local tour company on TripAdvisor instead. The tour covered most of the place we wanted to go and most importantly, it includes Northern-light hunt.
For more information, you could refer to their official website.
When you see the word adventure, what would you think of? Bungee Jumping, Skydiving, rock climbing etc…
For us we wanted to do something different from other places that we went before, so what kind of adventure should we do? We got a long list in mind but we only have 2 free days. And to accommodate my traveling kaki (partner), she is not into thrilling activities, so NO bungee jump, skydiving, mountain climbing uh-uh (too tiring). We are left with 4 choices, whale watching(Pass), Glacier hike (Pass), Riding a horse (Yes) and Helicopter ride (Yes).
Obviously, there are lots of activities to do in Iceland but that is our final choice. And I am totally excited about it~!~!
Half day in Nikko is actually a little rush, however, it can still be done. For me, I have put my top priority as the waterfall and Toshogu shrine, which are the 2 main place I would want to visit and as for the rest I could skip them or visit them next time. In the end, I have carved out a simple itinerary for that day.
Where we went?
Kegon waterfall->Nikko Futarasan Jinja (Photo took only)->Toshogu Shrine-> Shinkyo (Bridge) (Photo only)
