{The Adventures}...Dutch Tulips

The Netherlands in Spring are beyond beautiful! Did you know that tulips are not actually native to the Netherlands? During the Baroque Period, the Dutch East Trading Company went crazy for tulips. There was actually a psychological name for hoarding tulip bulbs! People were paying thousands of dollars for these tulip bulbs because they were a sign of someone's status! Now, we instantly think of the Netherlands when we talk about tulips! And why not? This is beautiful! I can't wait to travel here! (I hear the best time is May.)

Right now, with this chilly weather, where is your dream destination?
