Perfect Nine Days in The Netherlands

The Netherlands is about 16,000 sq miles or 126 miles square.  It’s a small country.  Their network of trains and buses makes it convenient to take public transportation instead of driving.  We ditched our car rental reservation and we were not sorry about it nor missed it.  We went in late April 2022 in time for the tulip bloom in the Keukenhof Flower Park.  The weather was a little chilly but did not require winter clothes (we are from Arizona and we survived wearing three lightweight layers).
