2014 Tulip Festival

  The Tulip Festival in Noordoostpolder, Holland is breathtaking. You are surrounded by so much beauty that it’s surreal and feels like a fairytale. It’s incredible to see all of the  different types of tulips. This was one of my favourite sites in Holland. If you’re visiting during Spring, I recommend stopping by.
