Keukenhof

It's not opening at all this year, so they are putting short videos of it online over the coming weeks.
This is the first

hetismij, thanks. I sent this to people I know who went there last year and were wowed. Keukenhof is a place I've always wanted to see. This year the videos will have to do me.

Coquelicot I was supposed to be there the first week in April this year. Maybe we can add this to our garden GTG.

Thank you for that. Our visit there was a highlight of our Netherlands adventure.

Thank you for posting. We went a few years ago and loved all of the flowers. I was just talking about going back next year.

Hetismij2- Thanks for posting these! We were also supposed to be visiting in early April. I had emailed Keukenhof to ask if they would post videos, and you have provided the answer. Now all their hard work can still brighten folks day a bit.

I hope so too!
One of the coolest things = "permission to come aboard".

If it's okay with you, I'll post some non-people photos.

In Greece, I was surprised at how much I loved the mainland. Because it was October, we spent more time on the mainland than the islands and that was a blessing in disguise. Now I want more time on the mainland.

Meeting heti was the reason I drove up north on my April trip (planned around the tulips) but it was a wonderful and gorgeous area and hope to return to spend more time in the North -


An Airbnb!!

heti will have to tell us who this is. I've forgotten.

Follow the yellow brick road! Harlingen was full of yellow bricks!

Thanks Heti! Seeing the tulip fields in bloom is one of my top travel memories! They were breathtaking.
