A day in Giethoorn

Somewhere in the North of the Netherlands, there is a place that looks as if it came right out of a children's fairy tale. A place where canals have replaced roads, where boats have replaced cars and where you're guaranteed to feel transported to another world. This place, often referred to as 'the Venice of the Netherlands', is called Giethoorn and it is a peaceful getaway for anyone longing for simplicity and quietness (at least for a couple of days).
