amsterdam – day six
Despite the fact that I’d just gotten home a few hours before I decided I still wanted to make it to Keukenhof, a flower garden a few towns over in Lisse.
Keukenhof is the world’s largest flower gardens and is apparently the most photographed place in the world. And it’s only open for three months out of the year. Basically it’s a huge garden filled with flowers. I suppose it would be a pretty horrible garden if it wasn’t filled with flowers. But I’m pretty damn tired so please forgive me. I’m not sure what else to say about it. It was pretty. Here are some pictures. Pictures speak a thousand words you know:
I’m proud of myself because on the way home I looked at the train board and saw that a train to Amsterdam was leaving in a minute so I hopped on with no hesitation. I think normal Val would have second guessed herself and waited for the next train. I don’t think I am normal Val here.
I guess it’s good to know that I can handle this all on my own. I know that just a few days ago I was convinced that my savings would now be earmarked for a condo, but now I’m not sure. It sucks being alone but it’s nice to meet new people. And even if you’re alone there are always people who can become your new best friend for an hour, a day, a week, or a lifetime.
I should find dinner.
