The Dutch countryside has special meaning to me. My ancestors went to South Africa from Holland. At Zaanse Schans village you can get a taste and discover the surrounding Dutch countryside and its wonderful windmills. Quintessential Dutch! Travel through idyllic landscapes crisscrossed with canals, see authentic wooden houses and old-fashioned cheese making demonstrations in Volendam. Watch a shoemaker make wooden Dutch clogs in Marken, and capture photos of windmills in the picturesque village of Zaanse Schans.

Eugene Brill is a travel, nature, wildlife, landscape photographer & author. Wannabe Naturalist & Digital Nomad. His passion is conservation and wilderness photography through the lens of a amateur wannabe naturalist. Eugene Brill does not hold a PhD in Environmental Science, Botany or another scientific field. He earned an MBA in business/marketing and is a mentor to startup entrepreneurs… but he’s a dedicated naturalist volunteer, an avid gardener, sustainable landscape designer and photographer. He does not ‘speak’ in taxonomic groupings, species and genera; but can communicate clearly with ‘Joe Public’ in language everyone understands. Eugene is constantly improving his ability to translate science into plain English. He loves to share knowledge, believe that Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD) is real, agrees that ‘forest bathing’ (fully clothed, off course… 😊) makes us happier, healthier and more creative.
