I sleep like a baby and wake around 7:30am. I am all checked out and on the road by 8:30. I decide to drive into town and check out the sites. I am driving into town and see a field of Tulips ! Wow, it is amazing. I find a small side street so I can pull over and get out to take pictures. It is just an amazing site to see. I guess I said that already. But wow ! The air smells so fresh and sweet , better than any perfume you have ever smelled. It is a very light fresh sweet smell. The more I drive the more tulip fields and hyacinth fields I see. I have not even turned on my GPS and at this point I don't even care about it. I am just going to keep driving and keep looking. Seems like every few blocks I am pulling over and taking pictures. I drive through a couple of small towns and still just keep seeing field after field of tulips. I drive through a town named Voorhout, then I am on a street named Oosthoutlaan which takes me to Rijksstraatweg in Sassenheim
I am seeing lots of busses, so I am thinking; those are tour buses for all these tulip fields. I decide to follow one. I am right! They even have stops where people get out and take pictures and can buy some of the tulips bulbs. The one I decide to follow has an accordion player that plays music when the people get out to look at the tulips and shop at the Tulip Bulb stand. It is soooo cute ! I take his picture, he seems flattered. I decide I like that bus, so I keep following it for awhile and stopping where it stops. I almost feel like I am cheating or something. Especially with the free music! Those people are paying money for that tour and it is not costing me anything. I spot a huge field of tulips and the bus does not turn. I decide I want to see that field, I will find another bus later. I turn down this little tiny road
It's getting to be midday and I still want to drive into Amsterdam to see Dam Square. I am figuring I have 300plus pictures of tulips by now. Lol
