Keukenhof 2016

Keukenhof Visit 2016.

On Monday May 16th, I went to the Keukenhof with my family who is currently visiting me from my home, Saba. Keukenhof is also known as the Garden of Europe which is one of the world’s largest flower gardens. It is amazingly beautiful & has so many different flowers. When you first think about visiting a flower garden you may just think ‘Why would I want to see flowers and visit a flower garden?‘ but trust me it is an experience worth experiencing. 🙂

Below I added some pictures that I took during our visit. To get to the Keukenhof we took a tram, train, bus and then walked around the area. The trip from where I live took about 1 hour and a half. My favourite was the blue orchid however, at every section we kept on saying ‘Oh this is pretty…No this is pretty…Ohh well they are ALL PRETTY’.  At no point could you just choose one favorite because they all had unique traits which made the whole garden exceptionally perfect. During the visit to the garden there was about a 15 minutes shower of rain and we quickly had to seek shelter due to the fact that we weren’t fully prepared. However, after it rained I took even more stunning pictures because the rain drops gave a wet texture to the petals. And in my option these pictures came out BEST!

My lilac bomber is from FashionNova and it is called the Picture Me Rollin’ Jacket – Lilac’. This is the perfect spring time bomber that I found online. I haven’t ran into anyone that has anything like it in the Netherlands. I also got a lot of compliments on my lippie colour which complimented my lilac bomber!

Made it to Curaçao.

Hi there,

Finally I am able to make a blog post…

Since arriving here I have been up and down, round and round! Busy with my family and friends.

I arrived safely in Curaçao, last week Thursday. My flight was scheduled to leave Amsterdam Airport Schiphol at 10:00 a.m. however, it was delayed by about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The airline I flew here with was KLM and like always I loved flying with them. The flight was smooth and the service onboard was perfect as usual.

After passing through all the security checks I made my way to look around and then decided to get something from Starbucks. The chia tea latte was the perfect combination to go along with two homemade sandwiches I brought along.

Some pictures of shops pass the security points…

The one thing when traveling with KLM is that you do not have to worry about being hungry or thirsty. They are always coming around with water, snacks and meals to keep you contented and hydrated. I took some pictures of my snacks and meals.

After being in the air we first got some nuts and water as an ‘Arrival Snack’, then after departure my 1st meal choice was the Pasta Arrabbiata! (I enjoyed it)  Later on we got a ‘Movie Snack’ it was ice-cream and water. (Who doesn’t like ice-cream?) Then the 2nd meal before landing was a light hot meal called Bella Italia. (Yummy) I was super happy with the meal selection and the quality of the food. I must add to it that the presentation of each tray is very fitting to the KLM house-style.

I also love the fact that you can track the flight and see your exact location. The picture below was taken when the airplane was close to arriving in Curaçao.

The feeling of landing in Curaçao is always great, flying over the smashing blue waves and colourful houses is an incredible feeling. This island is one of my many homes away from home, so I am grateful that I can spend a few days with family and friends here on Curaçao.

On the airport present to pick me up was my Aunt along with my Mother. My mother was also ‘toevallig’ by chance also here on a business trip and was able to see me arrive as well. It is a great feeling to be here! I will be collecting some video footage along with picture of the island and sharing that.
