Tulip season in Holland

I have no idea how close you are to nature, or how much you care about the arriving spring, but April annually is a wonderful month in Netherlands, Amsterdam, because of the tulip season that have started, it's a fairytale worth view, when hundred colours of tulips blanket covers the country. Netherlands is famous by the beautiful flower business if we an call it this way, but Amsterdam is more famous by coloured houses and huge wooden shoes. And of course plenty of Van Gogh's museums all over the city, probably one of the worlds cities with high number of museums. Dutch are very welcoming and happy people, being very easy going and open mind, something that most of the Europe countries should steal...

It might be confusing for some of you, but the country really has two names, officially is called The Netherlands , but many also called Holland. This is not just a tulip month, is a time when locals await Queen's Day, the birthday of Queen Beatrix's mother, Juliana. Amsterdam seems very popular for younger people, which want to explore the best night-life and get some bad habits tasted, which are allowed in Holland, if you are over the age of 16 , you can purchase alcohol , while you have to be 16 to buy cigarettes.

The capital's reputation is a very relaxed, and of course the Red Light district is still there. Amsterdam will go or it already is in history with it's very relaxed attitude, for many it's not understandable, for many it's the best solution ever. I guess once you reach a certain age, it's fine to live in Amsterdam, but when are you still a child it could be too much allowed..but a s they say, you want to do things that are forbidden.

Dutch people are world wide famous for healthy life style, even the president might go around the city with a bicycle, to ride a bicycle it's a part of lifestyle there, it's how Amsterdammers commute to work, go to the shop and meet a date for dinner, there is no such a way to go around with fancy car just to impress someone, cos the truth is , no one cares, that's a thing I respect the most of Amsterdam.

The capital is incredibly clean and organized, with side walks, the city reclaimed from the sea offers countless opportunities to drift, enjoying massive harbour and beautiful canals. Amsterdam is so great that you can hop in a canal boat and enjoy a ride through the city, or get a FREE ferries behind Central Station, that's the way it should be in every city!
