Edam



Edam


Edam - like Gouda - is famous only for its cheese (at least in the UK). Mild in flavour and wrapped in bright red or yellow wax, it was a childhood favourite of mine.

When we had chance to visit Edam, however, we found a charming, surprisingly beautiful town full of Dutch charm. I felt like I could happily move into one of the little waterfront cottages. And it seems virtually untouched by tourism - perhaps surprisingly, given that its most famous export is a household name.

What a beautiful town! I'm rather fond of the cheese myself, and loved getting to learn more about its namesake through your wonderful photo tour!

So lovely! This looks like exactly the kind of charming waterfront town I would live in as well.
