I was lucky enough to visit the Alkmaar cheese market on its last day and it was definitely my highlight. It portrays the essence of traditional Holland and was a like a dream come true as I had seen photos of it whilst growing up. Obviously there are now modern ways of transporting cheese but I loved how they showcased their countries history. The village itself is absolutely delightful with its boutiques and cafes which made for an incredibly enjoyable morning- who can say no to free cheese samples and watching a clog being miraculously constructed right before their eyes!
