Do you enjoy tulips? In 3 months tulips will be in season and blooming for all to enjoy in Europe. If you have even wanted to tiptoe through them you can in Holland. Are Amsterdam and Netherlands places you would like to visit? Plan your getaway to the Netherlands so you don't miss out. More than 7 million bulbs bloom in spring at the Keukenhof gardens with over 800 varieties of tulips.
Do you know why the tulip is the national flower of the Netherlands? In the 17th century the tulips were infected by a disease that caused bright colors, lines and flames on the petals of the flower. Many special breeds of tulips were named after Dutch navy admirals.
The Netherlands may be a small country but it is packed with opportunities to explore the fields of flowers, the windmills, cheese markets, wooden shoes, canals of Amsterdam and much more. It is very common to see folks enjoying a bike ride through the flowers.
In late April the Bloemencorso is the highlight of the blooming season when the Flower Parade will travel from Noordwidjk to Haarlem. There are a few ways to experience Holland but I like to experience this by a river cruise. You unpack once and dock close to the cities you will have time to explore.
If you are ready to plan your trip to Amsterdam or the Netherlands let's talk. The season is fast approaching and it is very brief. Accomodation go quickly.
If you want to see tulips and don't want to travel internationally to see them you can go to Holland, Michigan in May from Austin, TX. The festival there boast over 5 million tulips to see and enjoy.
Springtime is a great time to experience the beautiful colors. Let me know how I can help you! This is great for Garden groups and those that love flowers especially tulips. There are 2020 and 2021 itineraries available to choose from.
I hope you are having a great day! I have always enjoyed working in positions that allow me to be able to assist people whether it be helping with fundraisers, office work, helping sports teams, helping students, helping the elderly simply with basic things or just being there for someone to talk to. I love being in the people business and helping those that allow me to help them. A smile says it all.
Being in the travel industry provides me that same satisfaction while building friendships with you, your family, friends and co-workers. Collaborating with you on your ideal trip is what I enjoy doing. I get to learn more about you, what you want to experience and so much more. Many don't know where to start or where they want to go. As a travel advisor I will ask many questions so I know what I have to work with in order to meet your needs.
First, figure out what you (or your group) want to experience based on the things you (or your group) like to do. Based on this we can help narrow down a destination.
Second, Plan your trip at least 6 to 8 months in advance if not more for better pricing and selection.
Third, Be realistic with what you would like. You can't have champagne taste on a beer budget.
Fourth, If you have a group (destination wedding, family reunion, club, etc.) planning 15 months in advance is best.
Fifth, For cruises schedules are out 15 months in advance and that is when you get the best pricing.
Sixth, Travel does involve some planning but don't let it stress you out. That is why you work with a travel advisor so you don't have to spend hours researching.
When you are ready to start planning your next trip think about what you would like to experience.Here are pictures of me when I was with learning how to make homemade pasta from a Italian grandmother "Nonna" in Umbria, Italy. I found this much simpler to do than the way my German grandmother made them. The Italian Nonna grated black truffle for our pasta that we got to enjoy. Being able to learn and experience this was fabulous because I like to cook and be able to come back home and duplicate what I learned. I have since made some and they turned out great. If you like to get emmersed in the destination you travel to let me know and I will be gald to help you. One example is learning how wines are made in Italy and seeing them stored in historic cellars at cool temperatures. You could also learn how olive oil is processed. This process is really fascinating. The process in Italy is different then the way it is processed here in Texas. You could learn how cheese and many meats are processed in the destination. There are many cathedrals to learn about as well. Traveling is about exploring, experimenting, and having fun. It is great to connect with the locals. There are so many different things you can do. If you like this type of travel let me know. I am here to help you with your next travel adventure.
I love to travel and explore the world. My goal is to help others actually experience their desired destination(s) whether they are traveling solo or as a group. The world has so much to offer.
