An American In: Amsterdam, Part Two

Let's go back, shall we, to just a few weeks ago when I spent Easter weekend in Amsterdam. We visited the tulip gardens in South Holland and strolled through the streets on one of the most beautiful weekends I've ever seen in Europe. 

I've written about my love for Amsterdam before, in this post on my first visit to the Netherlands and in this one on the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens, but a quick peek at my photos of the sunny, wisteria-lined streets and you're sure to understand my obsession.

(Not to mention the fact that the Netherlands' entry into Eurovision was legitimately good and tasteful, but I digress).

Anyways, sit back, listen to my semi-botched recording of the church bells near Watrelooplein, and enjoy: 

There's an American car in this photo! Can you see it? Hint: it's giant, white, and completely unmissable.

After falling in love with Amsterdam when we visited over the New Year, we decided to pay a trip back to celebrate the four-day holiday that is Easter in the U.K. (Also the Dutch are maybe the cleanest people in the world and I wanted to pick up some spring cleaning tips.)

We were lucky that it was prime tulip time in Holland – the season only last two months a year and by god if we weren't there right smack in the middle of it. We made a day trip to the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens in South Holland, aka the largest flower garden in the world. Holy moly was it crowded (it was Easter Sunday, after all) but holy moly was it worth it. 

Keukenhof is an Instagrammers paradise, and we saw all types of interesting posed photos in process while we were there. Anyways, here are some of my photos.

If you're looking for more professional options, I'd recommend you check out this guy's photo Tumblr because he takes great photos and because I'm married to him. Enjoy!
