This lion is so metal he wields a broadsword. Seen outside the town’s renaissance-era fortress.
Today we took a day trip to Leiden.
My god, what a charming little town. Not the kind of phrase I’m used to saying, but Leiden was really beautiful. It has the canals you’d expect to see in the Netherlands, as well as handsome older buildings.
Honestly, I don’t know much else to say, so here’s some photos!
I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot of these.
Love me some Yeats.
There were a lot of buildings with this cool hand-lettered signage. I really liked the contrast.

The same bridge, but bigger.
Our first windmill!
