Keukenhof Gardens: Tulips Overdose

pic of tulips at Keukenhof Gardens Lisse Netherlands by Arun Shanbhag
When we were planning a trip to The Netherlands, I was thinking of immersing myself at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, while M was dreaming of the tulips, i.e. the Keukenhof gardens in Lisse, a quick bus ride from Schiphol Airport. Of course we did both, and much more.

It was a bright, cool day in early May. Apparently they have more than 7 million tulips over ~80 acres of well maintained grounds, and they were all in bloom! The colors and fragrances were simply overwhelming. I was close to getting a “Tulip induced migraine!” For a break, we stepped into the gift shop(s) and of course, more tulips.

The buses to the Gardens start right outside Schiphol Airport and I spied many tourists coming straight from their flights with their carry-on bags, on the bus. There were probably a million tourists there and it was difficult to get a shot without a selfie stick in the pic.

We all loved the glory of these beautiful royal buds. I think I have 300 pics of tulips and it was tough to share only a few. If you go to The Netherlands in the Spring, you cannot miss this. Till then enjoy.
