There’s something about visiting Europe that has so much charm to it that when I come back home I wish we had more cute towns and places like that around. Maybe it’s the brick streets, beautiful architecture, and the atmosphere in general, but whatever it is, I love it, and hope to visit more often.
The first thing we did was grab some lunch over near Bloemenmarkt. This place was so cool to check out because it’s basically a floating flower market. There were some cute little shops along the way and some great places to eat. We loved looking at all of the pretty tulips and flowers and some of the biggest bulbs I have ever seen. Of course the flowers I fell in love with they said wouldn’t make it back through US customs so we didn’t bother getting any.
In true tourist fashion, we decided to get a lock (because you have to lock your love, right?) and find a bridge to lock it up. We tried to be discreet and strategic about it and actually did not put ours where everyone else did. We know they get cut off pretty often and would love to go back someday to see if by chance it’s actually still there. We ended up holding onto it for a few days until we scouted out the perfect spot for it. The bridges there have wide bars so you would need a huge lock for it to fit on most of them. We found the perfect area with smaller bars that only had two other locks by it that were still there from 2013. So who knows, maybe there’s a chance it’s still locked up on there.
