Giethoorn, a Village Without Roads

Giethoorn is a village in the Dutch province of Overijssel. It's called "Venice of the Netherlands." In the old part of the village, there were no roads (nowadays there is a cycling path), and all transport was done by water over one of the many canals. The lakes in Giethoorn were formed by peat unearthing.

The place looks lovely. But I don't think I could stand living in a place without road and have to ride a boat to get from one place to another.
