We arrived in Leiden on the train from Amsterdam and in spite of being tired after getting settled in our hotel, we decided to walk to the Hortus Botanicus. I am so glad we did - it lifted our spirits to wander in the greenhouses (oh my those carnivorous pitcher plants and those ginormous amazon lilypads!) and around the grounds. I was amazed at the huge old trees and they provided perfect cover when a rain shower blew through. The plants are well documented and I enjoyed the historical and scientific information provided throughout the gardens. Go take a stroll through the gardens and along the picturesque canal and unwind when traveling stresses pile up!
