The land of tulips

After thinking about going to Amsterdam and visit Keukenhof ever since we moved back to Sweden (December 2008) we finally managed to do it this year!! I was so excited ahead of time and I did not get disappointed at all. What a place! Not only is Amsterdam nice with all the canals and beautiful historic houses but Keukenhof was simply WOW. There is nothing I can write that will give it justice, only a visit to the park will do. I will definitely go back again!

We used Airbnb instead of staying at a hotel. The place we originally booked got a water leak shortly before our arrival but the owner managed to find a new place for us to stay at in the Jordaan area. Very stylish apartment with the typical steep stairs.

The main entrance at Keukenhof. Yes, we were not alone. :) I have so many pictures from the part, and it was very hard to pick, but these are a few of my favourites.

I remember my (paternal) grandmother talking about the garden of Keukenhof and wanting to go for a visit, but she never managed to do it. I know she would have loved it too!
