Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
First time entering into a large garden filled with TULIPS! As a lover of flowers, I literally went crazy over the variety of colour of tulips that Keukenhof has to offer.
Keukenhof is located between Amsterdam and The Hague and it is the best place to visit if you are planning a trip to Netherlands (Holland) in the month of April as the Tulips would be in full bloom in this period. I also heard that 7 million bulbs bloom every spring, with a whopping 800 varieties of tulips.
Not to fret if you can’t be there in the month of April because you can still catch the tulips from end March till early May!
Thankfully, I was able to make a visit to Keukenhof with my friend Vera on 14 May, two days before they close the park. We bought a ticket that included a 2-way bus ride from the Amsterdam airport and the ticket to go into the garden.
Flowers are women best friends.
What a nice combination of colours. My dream garden 🙂
Flowers, flowers, everywhere. I can stare at them all day long !
PINK!!! *gasp for air* My favourite colour of tulips!
Feels awesome to busk in the sun after fighting the cold weather for the past few days.
They have other flowers other than tulips as well.
Imagine walking down the aisle through these flowers during your wedding. ❤️
Not to mention, they sell really delicious freshly made waffles near the entrance too.
Tasted some authentic and fresh Dutch strawberries as well. Yum!
A gigantic version of the klomp-clogs from the Netherlands.
Interesting fact- Klomp (clogs) are said to be able to withstand almost any penetration including sharp objects and concentrated acids!
How could I leave this place without showing you a windmill!
While I was in Amsterdam, the weather plunged from 17 degree Celsius to 6 degree Celsius! I was totally caught unprepared and I didn’t bring any gloves or thick scarfs as I thought that the weather would be pretty hot here in Europe. Nonetheless, it was an unforgettable experience for me, shivering in the cold and bearing the harsh wind in Amsterdam.
Share with me more on what other exciting adventures you have had in Amsterdam! I would love to visit these places when I come back in Amsterdam.
