The Hague (Den Haag in The Netherlands) is a city known for it’s International Court of Justice. It is the seat of the Dutch government. This building has been the location for the Dutch Parliment since 1446.
Against this impressive backdrop, a woman rides home on her bicycle, carrying her groceries in bags attached to her bike. The Dutch use bicycles vastly more than any other country I have visited.

This beautiful library looks like something out of Harry Potter. Thousands of books are only accessible by elaborately decorated winding staircases. It’s found in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. How long could you get lost in these books?
