We booked our Paris tickets!!! I am so excited for my upcoming visit to Jay. Maybe it’s because I’m working OT right now or because it’s been almost 3 months since we last saw each other, but I don’t care the reason. We just started planning the small side trips and a rough itinerary. I couldn’t be more excited to adventure with him!
So what are we going to do while I’m there?
Keukenhof. Perhaps one of the most famous things about the Netherlands is their tulips. Last time I visited the country I was too late for tulip season and I was pretty bummed about it. This year I should be there just in time! Keukenhof is the most well-known place for tulip viewing in the country. I’m really excited to wander through the park and take pictures of all the flowers with my new camera!
De Smickel. What’s that? Only the best place to feast on pannenkoeken! De Smickel is extremely popular and, from what I remember, in the middle of nowhere. It’s a real destination. Last time I visited we waited for upwards of an hour+ for a table, but it was worth the wait. You can get your Dutch pancake filled with a variety of different toppings (for lack of a better word) and you better come hungry because these are UGE! Koningsdag. While this isn’t a place, it’s sure to be a great time. Jay and I will be celebrating King’s Day in the Netherlands. It’s a very large national-pride day with small markets, concerts, and the color orange everywhere! We haven’t decided whether to go to Amsterdam or Rotterdam, but I’m sure either would be a lot of fun. I also hear the Dutch are really good at fireworks so I can’t wait to
