Travel Diary: The Hague, Netherlands

by Wadha Al-Jaber

A city where noble architecture, romantic coastline, inviting residents, and rich art and culture are all found in one place, is what I would like to think of as a treasure; and The Hague is truly hidden treasure in Europe.

Still, as Sean O’Connell said in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty movie, “Beautiful things do not ask for attention.”. So, The Hague will remain charming with its tulip flowers, canal houses, and -the girl with a pearl earring- painting without seeking validation from anyone.
