After the whirlwind of travel we've been on lately, we decided to take the month of July to explore our immediate surroundings in the Netherlands, France and Germany. Fortunately, because Luxembourg is centrally located within Europe, these countries are just a scenic road trip away.
The world-famous tulips bloom in Holland for only a few weeks each year. This weekend, we decided to drive up to the coast of Holland to view the flower fields and gardens in peak bloom and also to embrace the new spring weather. We got a bit ahead of ourselves on the change of seasons, as the Netherlands are notoriously cold and windy, but we braved the chilly April air and headed north from Luxembourg Friday evening.
Although we were on the verge of exhaustion after spending the work week in London, we hopped in the car at 6am on Saturday morning for a four hour scenic drive to Amsterdam. We chuckled together, thinking about how many times we drove the parallel route from Cleveland to Oxford. Amsterdam is now our Oxford.
