Thanks Chris. The cube houses were discommbobulating!! You tended to lean in parallel to the leaning walls! It was very odd. An ingenius us of space but not sure if I would like to live in one.

The glass balcony on the steeple was fun! I had not read about it when I researched 'things to do in Arnheim'' it only opened in March - we knocked a good hout out of it - so much fun!

this is it from the ground!

We really enjoyed Keukenhof , when we visited, awhile ago - ships' tour. It was on my ' to do ' list, but I would happily go back, time and time again.

I agree Keukenhof is one place that eveyone should see at least once in their lifetime!

It is hard to believe that the site opens just for seven weeks and is left idle there after until the following year. I know the flowers are seasonal but surely it could be used as a park for folks to visit or the pavillions for other exhibits but Nope! Seems unusual in this day and age when any asset is not exploited to its maximum and that use may change with the seasons.

Even the bulbs are carefullly removed by the breeders so the competition cannot figure out the genetics of the competitions flowers - didnt think tulip growing was so technical or so cut throat!

What I also did not realise what a rip off flowers are in Ireland compared what they can be purchased for in flower markets in the Netherlands which is far from being an inexpensive country.

Wot?!?
The carpets are fab!!! Loved the leafy ones in the corridors.

Done a few glass floors too - first one was 20 years ago in the sky tower in Auckland. Never did a glass box attached to a steeple.
