I’ve just discovered this wonderful, quaint, charming village called Giethoorn – known as the Venice of Holland.  Practically all transport, with the exception of a bike trail, is done by water throughout one of its many canals.  Seeing the beautiful pictures is enough to convince me that this is a must see place before I die so I had to share.  Has anyone been?  If so, tell me about it!
