No problems, I wasn’t going to stay in Amsterdam anyway. After the flight, a small trip of a few hours to Leeuwarden, a small city in the north of Holland.

And you will have a lot of other pictures, with which you do not have a complete story or a complete set of pictures for a story. Here are some random pictures of our travel to Ukraine and Holland in the past five weeks.
