Now, this is my idea of a fun "study abroad" program

Flower School New York is offering its annual Holland and France trip April 24 - May 2, 2013

This is not just some typical touristy trip. This is for the floral aficionado who dreams of visiting the most famous flower auctions in Europe and whose eyes light up at the thought of seeing acres of tulips in bloom at Keukenhof tulip fields. This tour offers some unparalleled opportunities. Not only do you get to see some of the best spots in both France and Holland, but you get once-in-a-lifetime experiences - like a private tour of Monet's home in Giverny, France by floral design superstar Christian Tortu. Also included are design workshops with some of the top names in floral design internationally.

You stay in the very chic College Hotel in Amsterdam

and go to market with Christian Tortu as well.
You also get the chance to dine at some exclusive gourmet eateries that only the locals know about!
Sound like fun to you?  It does to me! Check out all the details here
Have a wonderful weekend!

AAnne, Working at Exotic Gardens i iin Boca Raton, Fl. I would love to
ttake that trip. I had a great mmeal in Amsterdam, lamb chops, sspinich and fries. It was at a ffamily style upstairs cafe in ttown.
Mmy Hotel had a rapist working the ffront desk, who broke into my room
wwith his key. I knocked him in the head. Reported it to police. Sso check with Police before you b bbook a room. This is not a joke. IIt was
11987 I think. I laugh about it nnow.

Wow what an amazing experience and what stunning photos. I visited Monet's gardens a few years ago and it was so memorable.
