Kuekenhof

As if I could resist taking a cheese-tastic
tourist photo!

To cap off our holiday we headed out on Friday to the Kuekenhof, which is full of flowers, walks and touristy goodness that you would expect to find in Holland. There is the usual large wooden shoes, tulips, windmills and of course stroopwafels. This particular stroopwafel however was not your normal stroopwafel. It was fresh off the griddle warm and as big as my head. No joke. I would have taken a picture, but I couldn't stop eating it long enough to get out my camera. I have no idea how I will be able to eat store bought stroopwafels again (I am sure I will figure it out though). While that was a highlight the flowers and gardens on the property are truly amazing to view. Everywhere you look is saturated with bright vibrant color. Not a bad way to spend your day.

If you ever happen to be in the Netherlands in March, April or May I highly suggest going to the Kuekenhof. It is so big you can fill your entire day wandering the gardens, having a bite to eat and checking out the 100's of hybrids of tulips, daffodil's and hyacinth's. They even have a place for the kids to play and a petting zoo that I think it's safe to say I enjoyed as much as the children.

Me and the pig. I wanted to take him home.
