It was one majestic day in spring when the flowers were in full bloom; it was the perfect time to visit the Keukenhoff Flower festival. We took an hour drive from the city to travel to the “Garden of Europe”. It is also one of the world’s largest flower gardens. This day had been utterly perfect and beautiful. The drive to this place had been such a delight as well; clear blue skies, vast fields of green grasses occupied by black and white cows, traditional windmills, and small Dutch houses- it had already looked like a scene from a painting but arriving here at Keukenhoff felt like stepping into a whole new world.
Indeed this was such a special time to be with family. I couldn’t help but wish my grandfather was still with us, for he had such a special interest and love for blooms.
This was so surreal! Endless fields of bountiful and beautiful Tulips filled our car window’s view on the way home that we just had to stop and have literally smell the flowers. I feel like I’m living life inside an artist’s painting.
Pannenkoeken Boerderij. On the way home we stopped at this place that looked like an old barn. We had oversized pancakes and crepes for dinner. The setting was lovely inside and out with its traditional style and cozy ambiance.
Pancakes and crepes that came in the size of a large pizza; I wanted mine plain and simple with sugar and butter. Finishing this was a challenge! It was much fulfilling after a long day of walking.
