    THE TOWN WITH NO ROADS Giethoorn in Holland is a beautiful and quiet little village unique in that you will not find a single road in the entire town. connected by waterways and paths and some biking trails. Visitors are always welcomed and encouraged to rent an electric and noiseless "Whisper Boat" to explore this little piece of heaven on earth. Plus, without car pollution. I love Holland, it is one of my favorite places I have traveled.
