Keukenhof, Netherlands, taken on April 9, 2011
To me, nothing describes “vivid” better than the colours of Keukenhof. It had been a dream of mine to visit the Keukenhof gardens, and the dream came true within my first year in Europe. Being surrounded by more colours than one could count, all expressed in the beauty of nature, painted by God’s hand – what an amazing sight!
Amsterdam’s charm supposedly comes from its numerous canals scattered all around the city, like the typical one seen here. While I enjoyed Amsterdam’s beautiful architecture, I found nothing exceptionally unique about the canals, to be quite honest. I just wonder what that sign means…no fans allowed?
On the way to Amsterdam, friend and I made a short detour to Kinderdijk, one of the windmill sites in the Netherlands, near Rotterdam. It was early morning, and these birds were observing the tourists from the waterside.
