If I had to picture heaven, I’d imagine, Keukenhof. It’s just so beautiful – a beauty overload.
With a subtle hint of sweet, the purest and freshest air passed through my nostrils that day. You’d think it’d be the worst place on earth for allergies… surprisingly, we survived.
The famous garden is open to the public once a year, for 8 weeks. Hundreds & thousands of fellow eager-flower-beavers from around the world walk through this garden to see the 7+ million flowers in full bloom – think about it, 7, million.
If you’re worried about the crowd, we’ve been told: visiting during the week = a better idea.
i.e. better opportunity to stroll at your own pace, avoiding distractions and dangerously close encounters with selfie sticks.
The garden’s 200-hectare history dates back to the 15th century where an army of 20 flower professionals, planted spring-flowering bulbs to indicate the birth of Keukenhof as a spring park – a legacy.
Looking at flowers isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but even you with all your toughness will – even if its just a little bit – have an appreciation for this place of earth, painted in flowers.
You’ll literally leave feeling as fresh as a daisy.
