Our Europe Travel starts with a bang in our Giethoorn Netherlands vlog. This Netherlands travel video will take you to this charming little village about two hours from Amsterdam, known as the Venice of the Netherlands. From our thatched roof and very quaint Airbnb, to bicycle rides through the countryside, a canal-side lunch spot, and then an adventurous boat ride through treacherous weather, we show you some fun things in the Giethoorn area. A canal cruise, however, is the best way to get to know the Netherlands. We hope you enjoy the start of our 9-month European adventure and also go back and check out our experiences in Central America and see all 50 states during our Airstream journey across America.
