Maybe you have noticed I haven't been active recently. Well, the reason is my parents and little brother have been around in the Netherlands. For them, it has been like going to a country warmer than Spain! Actually, the temperature in the Netherlands the last two or three weeks has been unbelievable... around 10 degrees better than in Spain!
Well, this Monday it was the Queen's Day and there have been celebrations all over the country. In Amsterdam, people could not even go into the city from the train station... too many drunk people with orange T-shirts and orange everything ;-) In spite of the huge festival around, we went sightseeing normally. The big party will have to wait until next year ;-)
We went to Delf and Den Haag the first day they were here and the second one we went to Keukenhof, which is claimed to be the most beautiful spring garden in the world. After having visited it, I don't have any doubt... Have a look at these pictures!
Tulips everywhere, nice and colourful flower compositions... As my housemate said some time ago, the Netherlands are like Bambi's land at the moment...
Keukenhof was like that... and they even had a nice Dutch windmill!
Or even huge Dutch clogs for people to take photographs... My brother here:
After having been 6 or 7 hours watching flowers and smelling their nice scent, I must say Keukenhoff is a must for any tourist coming in April/May to the Netherlands. If I had to describe it with a single word, I would use WONDERFUL or BEAUTIFUL.
