Visit Holland

Links I Love Vol. 5 Why You Should Visit Holland.

Links I Love

In the year and a half that I have lived in the Netherlands, the Verlo and I have had two guests. My mom and my godmother. This makes me really sad, because I miss my friends and family and I love it here so much, I want to show everyone my life. I understand though, if I would have followed a traditional path in life, I would have graduated with the rest of my friends at the height of the recession. We are all trying to figure out how to bounce back from entering the job market at a terrible time. I also come from the South, where compared to other places in the Western World, people get married and have babies at a much younger age. I'm so proud of the lives my friends are carving out for themselves. And, I know that how eventually I will have money to make it back to visit them more often (I'm going back for the first time in August) they too will eventually save and make it over here as well. 

A little incentive never hurts though right? Here is this great video on why Holland is awesome. I hope that this video will not only inspire those of you who are my friends to come visit, but also those of you I don't actually know, who want to learn more about the Netherlands.



March Photo Challenge: Day 17: Green

orchid Keukenhof

Here is an orchid that I took a picture of last year at the Keukenhof.

The Keukenhof is located in Lisse and is one of the largest flower  gardens in the world. It is only open from the end of March until the end of May. This year it is open from March 22 to 20th. As far as tourist traps go, this is one of the best. It also holds a special place in my heart since last year it was at the kasteel just outside the park that I got engaged!
