Tiptoeing through the Tulips!

For our second big tourist attraction (the first was a canal boat tour) we decided to go all out and go somewhere with a high cliché factor. We went to a tulip festival at De Keukenhof.

Now, I know we could have saved ourselves some money and gone to Floriade in Canberra, but you know, doing it this way we got to catch up with a friend we haven’t seen in a year! (G – next time we’ll be on time! I swear!) G won himself many brownie points by complimenting my new scarf too!

And tulips!

It was an amazing day and a LOT of fun. Next year we may have to go a touch earlier in the season though, as some of the tulips were a little bit past their bloom life, but that just made the photography an interesting challenge!

Until next time, tot ziens!
