Great news sports fans, Brent was able to watch the Masters at our B&B last night. (A side note from Brent…I guess I shouldn’t complain but I watched on a non HD 13 inch TV. I couldn’t tell where any approach shots landed or follow any putts. Don’t get me wrong, I was happy to be able to watch, but we all should be thankful for the advances in TV technology over the last 5 years.)
Moving on, tonight is our last night in Amsterdam, and tomorrow we head to Paris. Yesterday, we took a day trip to Keukenhof to see the tulip fields and gardens. It was beautiful to see so many flowers blooming…tulips, orchids and hyacinths. Brent just didn’t want to leave.
Today we rented bikes and covered a lot of ground exploring the parks and neighborhoods. Even having been here several days, it’s hard to believe all the bikes. Bikers have their own lane, their own cross walk, and their own traffic signals. After biking, we went to the Anne Frank house.
One last side note. A lot of the cafes have signs that say “Eten + Drinken.” When you’re traveling with one other person 24/7, you run out of new material. As a result, we’ve been coming up with ridiculous things to keep ourselves entertained. We’ll often create expressions and quote them about 100 times a day. For the last 2 days, we’ve been walking around Amsterdam saying, “eten-an-da-drinken” in our thickest Dutch accent. There is no way you can find this as entertaining as we have.
