And the Answer to "Where Am I Going Next" Is . . .

If you guessed AMSTERDAM, you would be correct-amundo!

We're going in April, and I can't wait. I'd always wanted to see the tulips blooming in Holland, but I never connected the dots from Holland to Amsterdam in my head (they are the same thing) until Jim said he wanted to go to Amsterdam. Once I found out that it was tulip and windmill heaven, I was on board!

It's hard to pick a good time to go to see the tulips. It's kind of like planning to see the cherry blossoms in D.C., you're kind of dependent on Mother Nature. So I just hope mid-April gives us enough time to let some of those bulbs see their blooms fulfilled!

Have a great weekend!

That will be a WONDERFUL trip! I'm going to Wisconsin in mid April... not quite the same as Amsterdam... but I'll have fun!

April is a great time for tulips here in Washington (La Conner has some wonderful ones) so I bet you are safe there! Good luck!!!

amsterdam is kind of like vegas, no? all kinds of things that aren't exactly legal here happen there! :)

but the important question is: do they have crepes?!

I'd LOVE to go to Amsterdam. Maybe one day. Right now, I'm focusing on points West of here. West of West of Mars... somehow, that's redundant.

Have a great trip!
