Jossie and I headed to Amsterdam for a girl’s trip last weekend. I’ve been to the Netherlands before but have always dreamed of returning to see their world renowned tulip fields in bloom. After an exhausting night bus ride we walked around the city and took in the sights. First thing in the morning we went to the Keukenhof Gardens, home of the world’s largest flower collection and tulip fields. Needless to say the gardens were absolutely breathtaking with flowers of all shapes and colors.
The next day we stayed in the city and enjoyed the wonderful weather. We tasted cheese,visited the flower market and even stumbled upon the infamous I Amsterdam sign in the park. I just love the Dutch and their friendly demeanour and lifestyle. The Netherlands have a very diverse mix of people, and it was one of the few places in Europe I never felt like an obvious American traveler.
