Tulips and Tours

Our first day in Amsterdam was no work and all play.

First, we headed to Kuekenhof, the second largest flower garden in the world, to see the world-famous tulips. While it was early in the year and the tulips were not in full bloom, it was still breathtaking. We spent a few hours strolling through the gardens taking way too many pictures of flowers.


We headed to the Amsterdam city center for an afternoon of exploration. We hopped on a boat for a tour through the canals of Amsterdam followed by a walking tour. The day ended with a delicious dinner at a Belgian restaurant. We definitely had a fantastic time on our first full day in the Netherlands.
