Another day of exploring the Netherlands! We want to take advantage of the rental car
so we decided to again flip a coin and today that coin said to go to see the
Tulips! The Netherlands is known for
their flowers. In fact, iamsterdam.com says
that the Netherlands accounts for 70% of the worlds commercial flower
output. So off we went to Keukenhof
flower garden in Lisse. Probably not the
best day to make this adventure as it was raining and we were a little early in
the season and there were very few tulips at the tulip garden (as noted below) but
we always go where the coin tells us.
With all of the activity happening this week we decided to take it easy and sleep in. The big accomplishment today was to head outside the city center to FoodHallen food court on public transportation. They really have it dialed in here. Even I can figure it out. Thank goodness everything is visual because if I had to rely on street names I would NEVER get anywhere. In this picture, the street monitor is blurry, but that doesn’t matter because as the names show up in the picture is how they show up in my mind…..blurry.
