Mod Lounge in Amsterdam Airport

En route to South Africa we flew into THE Amsterdam Airport and hung out in the KLM Crown lounge.

It was super sleek and modern, with red egg chairs, lots of chrome and modular seating areas. The whole vibe was very swinging 60s and I loved how there were separate eating, entertainment and bar areas.

Because it was Amsterdam, there was a  flower shop on thew first floor of the terminal selling gorgeous tulips of every colour! They were so beautiful!

There were also the token souvenir tulip and delft blue china figurines for tourists to snap up...

Also worth mentioning is the most bizarre mcdonald's menu item I have ever seen: The McKroket.

Based on the traditional Dutch food, a kroket, the McKroket is a deep fried crunchy roll containing beef ragout. I’m fairly adventurous with food but it looked as terrifying as it sounded so I stayed away

Hard to believe it was an airline lounge - I would have been very tempted by the tulips, xv.
