The weather had been bad lately but she said that there should be some sunshine on Saturday. And it was. In the morning I looked outside and didn't see any clouds. It was hard to decide what to wear because it still wasn't really warm. But finally I went with capris, a top and sandals and took a coat with me. Outside I realize that at the other side of the sky there is dark clouds :(
We live five minutes from each other and met in a store 9.
Outside of Keukenhof Satu said that she probably forgot to mention how much it costs. 13,50 €. It sounded quite a lot because I thought that it's just a small park with flowers. But still I was ok with it. We saw a lot of buses outside and bunch of tourists going towards the entrance. Still there was no queue to the ticket booths so I guess others had bought their tickets in advance online as I learnt that it is possible.
When we got in I realized that it wasn't just a small park, as a matter of fact, quite big. The tulip season was over but there was at least lily and orchidea exhibitions. We saw all these colorful flowers and some with names we didn't know. There were even some tulips left. Soooo beautiful ! There was even an animal area with a donkey, a pony, coats, labs, chickens, a rooster, turkey, mini pigs etc. The sun wasn't really shining anymore and we got some train drops as well. Freezing.
We walked around for 3,5 hours and had lunch on hay bales. It was totally worth of the entrance fee ! What a nice Saturday we had :)
