Exploring the Netherregions

After two years of picking and 'planning' Christmas vacation, this year, I left it to Erik.
I'm the sort of person that likes to buy my airline tickets in August, and then research my destination through the fall so that we can arrive as prepared as possible. The good part of this approach is that I can uncover some gems that I might not otherwise come across. The bad part is that it reduces the element of surprise.
Erik is the opposite in his approach to vacation planning. Until December, I had just assumed that we would be sticking around for the holidays. But, then he started talking about looking at some last minute destinations and, on Sunday night, we got serious about looking.
It was ultimately a toss up between the Bahamas and the Netherlands. The Netherlands won. Three days later, we are here in Amsterdam for Christmas Eve.

Not so sure about the "netherregions", but I'm certainly looking forward to hearing about the Netherlands!! Happy holidays.

That's a brilliant pick. I bet it was right festive. Don't forget the Heinekin museum.
