Hallo Haarlem!

Introducing Haarlem...No it's not the Harlem Shake ye kawan2...
This is Haarlem, a wonderful, medieval city in North Holland. Haarlem has a lot to offer : a lively cultural scene, excellent shopping experience and also great dining opportunities.

Haarlem is also famous as the proto name of Harlem in New York. Also not forgetting the story about a young Dutch boy who became the hero of Haarlem when he saves his country by putting his finger in a leaking dike. Remember this? I know I do.

I was in Haarlem last week with Ayah James, Darwin and Fizz. We fell in love with the beautiful classic buildings it has to offer. Walking along the streets somehow creates a reminiscence of the medieval time few hundred years ago. Simply amazing...
