King's Day (or Koningsdag in Dutch) is a national holiday to celebrate the King's birthday. This first came about in 1885 and began as Princess's Day (or Prinsessedag in Dutch) to mark the birthday of Princess Wilhelmina on August 31st. On her accession day in 1890, the day changed to Queen's Day (or Koninginnedag in Dutch) and continued as Queen's ...
... Leaving home I was most excited about calling a new place home. Not so much the travel aspect. That time will come in 5 months.
I was fortunate enough to land a room in the heart of Leiden, through a friend of a friend. As it turns out, I couldn’t have gotten much luckier.

You can only stay one night but a lot of people stay for two. You have to use your own toilet, shower etc., but they do supply a place to get ...
... the tulips are dug out in June and July and a new theme will be created for the fall planting. We spent one glorious day in this beautiful garden and count our blessing that we saw the much "coveted" black tulip and equally rare green tulip.
In addition to the tulips, Keukenhof also has beautiful display of orchids. They have some unique orchids that look like Pansy's. Very interesting. I would recommend every flower lover to visit this place at least once in their ...
