Spring is the beautiful season when the winter ends and the tulips start blooming. It is the time when the cows are allowed to go outside again, the grass doesn’t grow during winter so therefore they are inside. On their first day outside you will see them jumping and playing with each other. We call it the ‘koeiendans’, cowdance. It’s a special day for all of us.

What also happens is that you will see the lambs playing in the fields with each other, while running to their mom for milk. Baby ducks will be born, and The Netherlands will slowly start to turn from brown to green. It’s a magical time. That’s why I am creating several roadtrip articles for spring as well. One needs to experience spring in The Netherlands, it is different than any country you’ve been before.
