North of The Netherlands you’ll find a row of small islands. While these islands define the unique shape of The Netherlands it’s no shock if you have never heard of them before, never seen footage of it or if you don’t know their names. For some reason, the islands aren’t very known around the world – that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth visiting though. The biggest island, and the one closest to the main land of The Netherlands is Texel – very touristic among Dutch and German visitors, but still quite unpopular for the rest of the world.
Texel is small, famous for her sheep herding, wool production and consists mostly out of dunes – with a couple of small, old and cute cities here and there. While there isn’t much to do on the island, it will make you fall in love.. and when you’ve visited it once, you’ll want to visit it again.
