Dutch Bulbfields & Keukenhof Gardens – Ronnie
We caught the ferry and clients relaxed on the ship, when we arrived in Calais, the weather was a bit gloomy, but no problem.
We travelled via Dunkirk, Bruges, Ghent & Antwerp to arrive at our hotel for about 6.40pm, for a 7.30pm dinner, which all clients seemed to enjoy.
A visit to Keukenhof Gardens today, it was very wet, this morning but clearing,. Our first port of call was the Kaag Lake for those that wanted to go on the lake. For those guests that didn’t want the boat trip, I took them round to Keukenhof Gardens and saw them in and advised them where to meet me later.
Everyone enjoyed the park and all the exhibits, although it was on the cold side. Some guests enjoyed a Brandy Chocolate to warm up! Back to the hotel from here – a good day, I think!
Today we made our way to Volendam, stopping at a Cheese and Clog farm on the way, the clog maker was very good (funny!) and then it was onto Voldendam for lunch. It was very busy there. After lunch we made our way into Amsterdam, where most of the guests enjoyed the city tour and canal boat cruise. A bit of free time, after this, and then we return to the hotel for our last evening where we find Ricky (another of our Crusader Holiday’s Drivers) with another group of customers.
We returned to Calais and our ferry to Dover. A good weekend!
