delft, holland

The day trip was a last minute idea of my sister’s. I had planned to spend more time in s’-Hertogenbosh, but admittedly, I have already more or less exhausted much of what that charming (but small) town has to offer. I knew I wanted to buy a bit of the famous Dutch Delft blauw, so a trip the earthenware’s birthplace made a lot of sense.

Not only did I find some sweet little pieces of Delft ware for my home, but I also found a very sweet Dutch town that charmed me instantly with its venerable churches, princely abodes, and narrow canals. I can see how Johannes Vermeer (who hails from Delft) was inspired to paint his masterpieces in this quaint Dutch town.

tot ziens!

hallo, holland!

I’ve spent the last couple days (and soon tomorrow too) taking day trips to various Dutch cities. Amsterdam was a must, of course, but today I spent hours in Delft (of “Delft blauw” fame) and tomorrow I’ll be in Den Hague. I’ve got lots of photos to share, but in the meantime, here’s a snippet:
