An Afternoon in Volendam

by David Nurse May. 23, 2020 285 views

Another of our trips in Holland from last year. This time Volendam.

I am told that is it one of Hollands best-known fishing villages?

This day was again in the middle of summer and the crowds were very large.

Volendam was very quaint, although perhaps the large crowds (we being part of it) sadly hides some of its charms.

The main area now is very much visitor orientated with many souvenir shops, bars and restaurants, as the village would seem to be orientated for trippers (at least at the height of summer).

We had some good food from one of the key side vendors and it was very fresh and tasty, we then sat at a quayside bar, drank cool beer and watched the boats come and go. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.

This was the second time we have visited here and both occasions were for a short period of time.

I would like to share with you some of my images.
