New Zealand: whale watching

There is such an expensive entertainment – Whale Watching, whale watching. There are several spots in America, South Africa, and Madagascar where people come from all over the world to see the world’s largest animals. Moreover, the considerable amounts paid for this adventure do not guarantee that you will see, in fact, a whale. A close friend of mine, for example, spent a whole day at sea near Boston, and saw nothing but the tears of disappointed children.

Tulip fields: catch the moment!

I also visited the Tulip fields today. I went without preparation. I decided that I would take a course for Hillegom, but I would sort it out on the spot. I arrived by bus, walked for almost an hour, and around the trouble-trouble, distress: either the fields have faded, or the tulips are cut, or around the field there is a huge moat with water. As a result, I was ready to admit defeat and headed for the Hillegom railway station. And then…
…I was rewarded for all my suffering today 🙂
