Netherlands (Kingdom of)

Most of the islands round here (Leeward and Windward) were named by Columbus. This one was discovered on the feast of St Martin. It's actually a teeny island unusually divided into Saint Martin and Sint Maarten, a bit of the Netherlands and a bit of France. But don't let that fool you. Everyone speaks English with American accents and trades in dollars.

Tulips in Holland has been on the bucket list for a long time so we load up the car and set off for Delft. Holland is so small that on the map everywhere seems reasonably close.
