[Move] Transportation guide to Kinderdijk

Will be covering our transportation to the UNESCO famous world heritage Kinderdijk.

This post isn’t supposed to be here as this is not inside our plan, but anyway thanks to the change. Here it is when our hired car didn’t come to pick us up on the appointed day and we have to do it our own way.

There are quite a handful of methods to get to Kinderdijk and one of the options, which I will be explaining or guiding here are for travelers, who stay near to the Amsterdam central station or even better if you are staying in the same hotel as us.
