Keukenhof: a magical flower land just (a bus, train to the airport, and bus again) outside of Amsterdam where tourists (and maybe a handful of locals) flock for the springtime blooms of tulips, a few other flowers and more tulips. Despite the trek to get there and overpriced entrance fee, Keukenhof really was gorgeous. Gabby and I waited for a perfectly sunny day, but may have waited too long as some of the tulips were a little wilty. But, it was beautiful all the same 🙂
From Keukenhof, we trekked back home (where we got caught not paying for a train ticket and ended up detouring through a new station), rested up & then headed out to get our butt’s kicked at a local pub quiz! All in all, pretty stellar Monday 🙂
Now I’ve got just about a week before my mama lands in London! Time to (finally) get serious about some school work so we can enjoy our 4 weeks together!
