Leisure | W.H. Davies
”What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.”
Our AirBNB outside of Amsterdam may have been our favorite “home” of the whole trip. A beautiful garden cottage in a darling country-town between Amsterdam and Utrecht… the pictures were good, but they weren’t NEARLY as good as it was upon arrival! One of the best kinds of surprises!
Very close to our AirBNB is Kasteel De Haar, so that was our first stop of the day! Then, thanks to our very late start (we slept in until past noon… which I’m glad for!) we decided to change our itinerary a bit and postpone Amsterdam until we had a longer day to explore, and on our host’s recommendation we went to Utrecht instead! Great game-time call. I loved it, and it’s the first “scene” that comes to mind when I think of our time in Holland. Not too big, not too small, the perfect start to our trip!
