Through the Heart of Europe -- Part 19, Floriade 2012

And here we are in Venlo, not far from Amsterdam and site of the 2012 Floriade, one of the world's largest horticultural expositions. We were quite lucky to be able to see it because the next one will not be for another ten years.

Big boots to fill.

Little shoes for sale.

Entrance to the main exhibit hall.

Inside. I have so many pictures, and so little space. I'll just post a few to give you a bit of the flaot of the place.

Flowers, flowers everywhere...

Even on the walls of the exhibit buildings

And all sorts of whimsical thingys

After several hours and hundreds of photos we finally exited the expo over this interesting bridge and reboarded our bus heading on to our next destination. As impressive as the Floriade was, and it WAS impressive, it was just a hint of what was in store for us.
