Flight over Zuid-Holland 2013, part 1: Dutch flower fields& Leiden seen from the air

This year we decided to try a flight to the tulp fields starting from Rotterdam airport so we could fly over Leiden, Bollenstreek (the sping flower area), den Haag and Scheveningen...In this post I will take you onboard wth me and will show the fantastic view over the old town of Leiden (first pic), our cute plane (Cessna, four-seater) and the spring colours seen from the air! Enjoy the view+have a good flight:-)))
 
For all the curious ones who want to do the same: we flew with Lionair, I do recommend them for this 1-hour-sightseeing-tulip-flight.
PS: More aerial shots to come in part 2...

I'm used to seeing patchwork fields in Australia - but they don't have colours like yours!! Fantastic!!

Aah, the tulip fields - I've only seen them from the ground and they seemed to stretch on forever - what a fantastic treat to see them on your flight in the air - this is indeed lovely. Jana, are you going to be in Amsterdam for the big celebration? Have a great day.

Oh wow. As in, WOW. I love how the field looks like it's been colored with crayons!

It made me think--it's so amazing how they can cover huge patches of land with all these colorful flowers :)

Wow, prachtig een vlucht boven Nederland. Je hebt zeker genoten. Ik ben net terug uit Duitsland (helaas met een zware bronchitis) Ik probeer mij langzaam weer bij te werken op de blogs en Flickr en FB. Fijne zondag en groetjes Dietmut
