The theme park Het Land van Ooit (literally translated as The Country of Once) seemed like a perfect place to walk in this prom skirt. A fairy-tale park, opened in 1989, went bankrupt after almost twenty years. Do fairy-tales go bankrupt? Well… This is quite surprising because Dutch people are really keen on amusement parks. They even say you had not lived in the Netherlands if you did not visit Efteling. Unlike Efteling, this park is obviously not on the visiting list of many. Its paths, once guarded by the soldiers of Napoleon, are walked by mostly locals with children and/or dogs. The pink castle stands alone as evidence that once mysterious characters lived there. By far the best place for this photo shooting. Sunny but not as warm to leave a good wool coat at home, I managed to show those flamingos how to endure the Dutch spring. They pretty much enjoyed the match with the silk lace top and the shoes I bought in Venice last year.
