My Friend Kevin's Seeds From Amsterdam ๐Ÿ˜Ž A Travel Story

Kevin's seeds purchased from Amsterdam ๐ŸŒฑ Are most definitely NOT Tulips ๐ŸŒท

Let me begin this story by saying: "That all of these events happened over a year ago, before Covid-19 destroyed all of our travel plans". My friend (and ex-business partner) Kevin is a Graphic Designer by profession and gives advice on making game Apps for the Apple Appstore.

So he often travels abroad to speak at conventions about Game App development and the best ways of getting them published.

Kevin is a clever guy, but hopeless at organising himself or even "planning" himself on a personal level. A very unconventional mentor I would call him in a most friendly way. So I have to admit that I was quite surprised and a bit shocked when I spoke to him about his Amsterdam Trip.

So this was what happened... ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Kevin went off on his important Business trip to Amsterdam, after a panic visit to London (realising that his passport was "out of date"!) just a couple of days earlier. While chatting with a few people in one of the many cafes there and smoking a few joints, he was easily persuaded to purchase some seeds.

After a nervous time on the plane, and a very quick walk through customs at the Airport. This is the result of what he bought below (a few weeks later) ~ At first I thought they were just ordinary "weeds" growing in the pots ๐Ÿคฃ

As it turns out I was half right in a way ๐Ÿ˜€ They are most certainly NOT Tulips ๐ŸŒท from Amsterdam. I do think he was crazy to risk being searched through UK Customs, and very lucky in my opinion!
