Winter in the Netherlands: snow makes it even prettier

It wasn’t all good the past 48 hours. Due to black ice throughout the country it wasn’t really ideal to go on the road or take a train. Loads of you fell off your bikes or only undertook one little hazardous trip to the supermarket. There was also some dense fog coming in yesterday and granted, it wasn’t the biggest layer of snow seen in the Netherlands yesterdaymorning.

But for a lot of people who were just eagerly waiting to see what the Netherlands would look like in a white wintery jacket yesterday was perfect. And when we asked you to post or send your best pics of it to DutchReview you all send in tons of pictures: awesome you guys!

So we had some tough choosing to do; here’s the best of the Netherlands under a little magical layer of snow from the DutchReview readers:

Utrecht was particulary nice and Linda van Brakel made some great shots of it!
