After close to six weeks for me and about four weeks for the hubby of being away from our home we were happy to return early this week.
In less than two weeks I have now paddled in both countries; the United States (Minnesota) and The Netherlands.
I started my yearly Spring migration to Minnesota at the end of last week and the start of that journey was Schiphol.
Each time I fly through this airport I learn something new.
Things are in constant change and even as a frequent traveler I still have to keep on my toes as to the changes at this Amsterdam international airport.
I made it through the entire check in (with luggage) and security process in less than half an hour. Leaving me with three hours to wait at my gate prior to departure.
The one thing that Schiphol has that I always find relaxing is the Rijks Museum at the airport. This free to visit collection of art by Dutch Masters is a must see. It was a perfect way to spend some of my waiting time.
Enjoying world class art while traveling makes me happy.
I would suggest this small but beautiful stop if you have extra time to wait at Schiphol.

I jumped on the bike. I rode much slower than normal. I took my time riding towards Lisse, the home of my former job location, the Keukenhof.
Tulips! The first tulips field of the season!!!
The tulips are about three weeks early with the warm spell we had two weeks ago.
I am sitting here this evening typing, I am feeling muscles that were dormant all winter. Nothing like shoveling wet dirt for a couple of hours to work up a sweat and have my body now inform me that I am a bit out of shape.
