Day Trip to Leiden, Netherlands

This lion is so metal he wields a broadsword.

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!

First Windmill Leiden

I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot of these.

A Coat Wall Poetry Leiden Netherlands

Love me some Yeats.

Volksbadhuis Leiden

There were a lot of buildings with this cool hand-lettered signage. I really liked the contrast.

The same bridge, but bigger.
