Amsterdam-Part 2

We were heading to the Keukenhof Gardens today; Callie & I were VERY excited! We had been dreaming of this day for so long haha!! We bought our tickets from a cabin near Central Station and then headed by bus to the airport where we transferred to a Keukenhof bus which took us straight to the gardens. WOW! As you enter the gardens, you are welcomed by such beautiful flowers (PS it may sound boring but it truly isn’t; there’s so much to do and see in these gardens). Callie and I dragged the boys along and made them pose for photos with us, in order to get a good new ‘profile/Instagram pic’ haha! We enjoyed a delicious curry hot dog at a pit stop between flowers :). I will just post lots of pictures as it’s pretty self-explanatory!

After an hour or two we decided to go and rent bikes outside the gardens from a place called Rent-A-Bike Van Dam where we decided it would be hilarious to hire tandem bikes!! None of us had ever ridden a tandem bike before so we couldn't stop laughing at the beginning as we tried to set off with everyone watching us! We cycled under a bridge which led us to breath-taking views!! Callie turned round to me and we both just squealed!! We pulled up and grabbed the camera and selfie-stick (a must!!) and snapped away. The pictures don’t do it justice; it is such a beautiful place and we just couldn’t believe people got to live right next to the fields and that they are able to stare at them every morning when they woke up!! #JEALOUS
We headed to a few more tulip fields and enjoyed cartwheeling and jumping in the row of tulips (some tulips were harmed in the process….CALLIE!! ;)) but we had so much fun!!

 We were so gutted to leave but we had to get back to the apartment so we could pack up, have something to eat and then head to the airport!!
Once we stepped onto the plane we were all dead and although I didn’t want the trip to finish, I was happy to be back in my bed, and I am sure Callie and Austin were happy to be sleeping in a normal sized bed again haha!!

Now we have to start planning our next trip!!
