Travel destination - Amsterdam
Because Amsterdam’s soil consists of a thick layer of fen and clay, all buildings are built on wooden poles that are fixed in a sandy layer that is 11 meters deep on average. The Royal Palace at Dam Square is built on no less than 13,659 wooden poles.
We wanted to jumpstart spring by taking a trip to Amsterdam for Easter….see a tulip or two, but spring was not yet around. Fortunately the sun was out and we could enjoy the sights of the beautiful and charming city by foot 🙂
