"Strike a pose with those tulips, we need a picture for your mom". Still donno what to say about #keukenhof - all those flowers are beautiful, but I am not sure, if it was worth the 2,5 h car ride from Brussels. The place is crazy crowded and though watching Chinese and Russian tourists taking "romantic" pictures is fun, 3 hours in the crowd ate tiring. Despite this year's exhibition topic - Dutch design - some parts of the garden were outrageously tasteless. Opposite to comparable German places (e.g. #britzergarten ) there are almost no explanations and information about tulips, about gardening etc, i.e. Keukenhof is not a museum and is supposed just to entertain, not to educate. But still, I've finally made it to the famous garden and have seen the tulip fields around - 10 years after I've started learning Dutch.
