Want holiday inspiration for a long-weekend away? In our 3-part series, we’re sharing our favourite trips from Belgium. First up – our favourite road-trip getaways.
Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse, the Netherlands is synonymous with tulips. We’ve visited Keukenhof nine times, since 2005, and I thought I knew everything there was to know. However, last weekend, we were invited to talk to a few of the people who work behind the scenes. Their stories were full of surprises.
Spring is here and our thoughts are turning to visiting Europe’s best gardens. Today we share photos of our 10 favourite gardens in Europe.
If you dig way, way back in the CheeseWeb archives, you’ll find the saga of our arrival in Europe. Those days, CheeseWeb was simply a personal journal for my close friends and family, back home in Canada. You’ll find a lot of (badly written) posts about our time in Amsterdam, from 2004 and 2005, but since those days, I’ve written very little about one of my favourite cities in the world.
Despite the relatively short time we spent living there, (7 months in total) it still feels like home, when we visit. So today I’d like to share a bit of my Amsterdam with you, with six things I miss about Amsterdam.
We have loads of food options in Brussels. I’ve fallen in love with cuisines I had never even tasted before settling in Belgium. But still, there is no decent Mexican restaurant in Brussels. If we want a nice, sit-down dinner of incredible Mexican food, we need to drive to Amsterdam. We NEED Los Pilones.
Spring will soon be upon us and I’m busy figuring out which gardens will be on my photography list this year. There is one place you can get your fill of gardens year round though – The flower auction in Aaslmeer, the Netherlands.
