Travel | A day in Zwolle [NL] - pt1

Travel | A day in Zwolle, the Netehrlands, part 1.

Hello!!!

On today's post, I thought it would be nice to show you another beautiful town of the Netherlands. And as always, I had a very hard time selecting the photos to share with you; I blame it on this town's beauty!
Seriously, I never expected Zwolle to be like this.

Zwolle is located in the northeast of the Netherlands and is the capital of the province Overijssel (thank God I don't need to pronounce this...). Overijssel stands for "across the IJssel" which is a river in the Netherlands.
For me, it was about 2,5h drive, but you can easily reach Zwolle by train; if there is one thing that the Dutch are good at is having a nice public transportation network. The railway system is great (many Dutch people will disagree with me - they always complain about delays and stuff...), especially compared to Portugal!

I went there to go visit some friends who had just had a little baby boy (cutest thing ever!!!), but you know me by now, and I couldn't say no to a nice opportunity to go and snap some shots around Zwolle.
Me and my beloved Sony a6000, were ready to go.
Oh, I also made sure to let the Mr.A know that I wanted to photograph; in man's language that translates to "I need time to walk around; will stop several times, and you need to be patient".

Mr.A if you're reading this: thanks for the patience!!

Anyway, let me stop babbling and show you a bit of Zwolle.
At the end of this post, there will be some more info & links about how to get to Zwolle and all that good stuff.

Let's go!

The old town of Zwolle is surrounded by water - the "stadsgracht" - which I found very charming. It also gives you the perfect spots to chill during a nice sunset.

The Dutch love to sit on a terrace table, have a nice drink while enjoying the beautiful weather.

I was fascinated by this building!!!

Now, tell me: aren't you curious about Zwolle?? I know you are...
We had the perfect weather; it was nice yet not blistering hot, and there were some clouds which always make the pictures more beautiful, in my opinion.

How to get to Zwolle:

I recommend you take the train. Visit ns.nl to plan your journey and buy your tickets.
The closest airport is in Amsterdam - Schiphol.

Where to eat:

There are several nice restaurants in Zwolle; but since we were visiting friends, we had a marvelous barbeque at their place.
You can always check TripAdvisor for some inspiration.
