The Netherlands is one of the most liberal countries in the world. The country was founded on the idea of tolerance, religious and otherwise. To this day, there is an abundance of marijuana coffeehouses as well as a prominent red light district right in the middle of downtown Amsterdam. And they do it in a way that is very natural and friendly. And let’s not forget the tulips, the Gouda cheese and the artists like Rembrandt and Van Gogh. They are the tulip capital of the world. And there are more variations and nuances of Gouda cheese than you can shake a stick at. Some of it is aged so long, it has become sweet and intoxicating. The Van Gogh is deservingly a world class attraction, as you will hopefully find out for yourself.
