Did you make it to Keukenhof?? Best place for tulips.

Barely enough time to enjoy the inside of Schiphol airport - the tulips had been bought on a previous transit, but were actually growing in the UK :-)

The only good thing inside Schiphol is the Leonedis chocolates stand however a kilo or so of that makes up for much.

Shhh...don't tell jules :-) Actually, surprising as it may seem, we have a Leonidas right in the middle of our little home town of Kamakura. But there's nowhere here to get great big blocks of mature Gouda. So the cheese shops were one of our main targets.

[wonders idly how many other PMIP attendees selected their travel plans based on the airport shops encountered en route...]

I love the tulips pic! I've just downloaded it and set it as the lock screen in my smartphone. Thanks!
