When the sun is shining and the grass is green…there is no place I would rather be than Ireland!
As soon as I got back to Holland on Sunday I decided to go on a little adventure to Keukenhof before returning to Groningen. Keukenhof is the home to Holland’s tulip fields, and is a truly breath taking site. I have never seen such a kaleidoscope of color, it was incredible. I walked around for hours, enjoying the afternoon sun and taking way too many pics! As they say, a picture tells a 1,000 words, so I’ll stop writing now and let the photos do the talking! Enjoy.
Close your eyes. Now I want you to picture something. Huge sweeping hills, everything covered in long green grasses and tall, flat topped trees. Flowing rivers and gushing waterfalls, the cool water spraying gently on your face. Wild flowers creating a rainbow of colour in contrast to the lush green hills an clear blue sky. You can feel the cool breeze working its way through the mountain valley, as you smell the sweet scent of all nature has to offer.
Then, as the sun sets and night descends, the sky fills up with millions of bright stars, a sweeping trail across the milky way. Listen closely and you can hear the howls of wild dogs and wolves in the distance. Curl up in front of the warm bonfire, watching the smoke float upwards into darkness, as a local witch doctor recounts stories of both the perils and the joy of living in these hills.
Take a look at these pictures and again try to imagine such a mystical place. Then, let me know where you think this is!
