I would love to visit the Netherlands
  1. As a child one of my favorite books was Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates
    By Mary Mapes Dodge
  2. My maternal Nana was named Daisy Ostrander
    I learned through Ancestry.com her family (also mine of course) emigrated from The Netherlands generations ago in the early 1700s
  3. My dad spoke Dutch and German and said they were similar.
    These early experiences - the book, Nana's ancestors, and my dad's languages - sparked an interest in The Netherlands
  4. Of course I want to see Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and The Hague
    The museums, the palaces, the art!
  5. I would like to see the van Gogh Museum
    I only began to appreciate art in mid-life
  6. And visit a cannabis coffee shop
    This would be just like home because I live in Colorado – the pot capital of the world
  7. The tulips and the canals
    Because tulips=Holland
  8. Windmills
  9. And of course Vermeer
    I love his work
  10. There is so much to see and do in Europe but I most likely will not see any more of it
    Because of the disability and mental illness and stuff
  11. But Diplomatic Diva sent a list request and I wanted to reply
  12. So it will have to be just The Netherlands
  13. And anyone who reads this!
