strand. plage. beach

apologies for all the beach shots - but  this is one of holland best kept secrets: the beaches  that stretch from Scheveningen to Katwijk, Wassenaar being the quietest, most remote and breathtakingly beautiful...

a great quote i just read ( which does not mention the beaches..)  from smashing magazine  : The Netherlands, also known as the “Low Countries,” is a small, crowded, muddy piece of land through which a few big important rivers fortunately run. In this country, you can find coffee shops, wooden shoes, tulips, windmills and a lot of water.  
And everything is rather small! Well, at least most of the architecture is. How cute is that? But it’s also the land that brought the world many great painters, famous architects, and excellent graphic, fashion and interior designers. We all know Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Mondriaan, Rietveld, Koolhaas, Escher, Droog Design and Viktor & Rolf, right?

i will go to  the Droog shop in amsterdam this week.
