      Nijmegen Jul 26, 2015 at 1:25 PM

      Hello everyone.

      I am looking to get a group of around 4 people out to the marches next season so we will need a accommodation for a week long stay. All the hotels and B/Bs seem to be taken already (and we need a place within about 4km from the center of town). Can anyone help us out? Any local residents perhaps? All info will be greatly appreciated.

    • Open air markets

      Roermond Jul 5, 2015 at 1:08 AM

      I was in Amsterdam a few days back and chanced upon the lovely Albert Cuyp market where there were very nice fresh fish and seafood on sale there (pictured). I was wondering if there's a open air market similar in Roermond or Maastricht? I would like to buy fresh fish and seafood! Thanks! :)

    • Travelling alone , looking for companion

      Amsterdam Jul 31, 2015 at 3:06 AM

      Hey, I am on business trip and while returning will be in Amsterdam Sep 18-20 (check out) ; well this will be my personal trip and not paid by company:) .
      I was looking for someone who are travelling to join so that we can afford good place to stay at least and share the accommodation expense. I have seen some places on line but the cost is high, hence if someone is travelling on those dates we can get together and at least stay in better hotel near central station or centre of city. Looking forward for a companion. I understand the world is not that sweet however I am ok to share personal details and expect same if able to find someone.

      Thanks. Jks

      Chipcard and Public Transit Questions

      Netherlands Jul 13, 2015 at 2:01 PM

      Hello! My wife and I will be in Amsterdam for 5 days this month -- we'll be taking several day trips and I can't seem to find answers regarding this "chipcard" in any of the official info. Our situation is thus:

      • We will be heavily using the metro while in Amsterdam
      • We will be touring the Waterland area for a day (it sounds like there is already a comprehensive bus pass for this trip you can purchase at the railway station)
      • We will take the train to Delft and would like to use the trams and buses where necessary
      • We will take the train to Apeldoorn and will be needing to take buses to and from the Hoge Veluwe park

      I keep reading about this 96-hour chipcard you can buy for only around 20 euros, but I can't tell if this is valid only for Amsterdam or if we can use it on buses and trams throughout the entire country.  To add further to my confusion, I can't tell if you also need this card for train travel?  I am assuming the 96-hour disposable chipcard will not cover train travel -- but do you need to acquire one of these cards to ride the trains or do they still have paper ticket machines like elsewhere in Europe?  

      Assuming the 96-hour disposable chipcard doesn't cover buses outside of Amsterdam, would it be advisable to buy a plastic anonymous OV-Chipkaart, and if so, are there machine vendors for these or do you need to visit an office?

      I can find all sorts of information on owning these cards: using them, checking in/out, topping them off, etc... but I can't seem to figure out how to just get started as a tourist.  If anyone has any suggestions on what the best option for us, given our timeframe and travel plans, would be for purchasing a public transit solution, it would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

      Best non-touristy places to see/eat/drink, etc?

      Amsterdam Jul 13, 2015 at 4:42 PM

      Hi, My husband and I are traveling to Amsterdam next month and wanted any insight on some non-touristy things to do. We have interests from art/architecture/landscape/ to craft beer to military history (that is definitely my husband!). We will only be there for 3 days.

      I've been there twice before, but he has not. And it was over 10 years ago since I went so i have forgotten most of what I saw (pre-digital camera days)...walked around a lot and went to many bars and clubs. However, we are not the club going types anymore (late 30's/early 40's, been there and too old for that. LOL) We do enjoy good meals, pubs, and seeing unusual and beautiful scenery. He also partakes in smoking pot and would love to know the best place to go (I'm sure most places are good, but if any place stands out).

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    • Layover in Schiphol

      Schiphol Jul 17, 2015 at 11:59 AM

      I have a flight from Edinburgh to Berlin Tegel airport in a few months with a 12 hour layover in Schiphol airport flying with KLM. I'm a UK citizen so I assume i'll be allowed to leave the airport? There aren't any special passes or fees involved are there? Also will my luggage automatically be transferred through to Berlin or will i have to collect it and check it in again? I don't really want to carry a suitcase round Amsterdam for hours if given the option. Any help appreciated.

    • Travelling from Amsterdam Schiphol to the Hook of Holland

      Amsterdam Jul 19, 2015 at 12:13 PM

      Hi! I'll be travelling from Schiphol to the Hook of Holland with a cat on August 17th. I've been looking at the train times and decided on the 15.16 train from the airport. It arrives at Schiedam Centrum at 16.03 and I'll have 4 minutes to swap from an Intercity train on platform 3 to a Sprinter train on platform 2. Is this doable? I'm stressing out a little in case I'll have to change platforms via an overpass, I'll have about 40kgs of luggage with me (and a cat). Are the platforms beside each other? Thanks for answering!

    • Moving to Amsterdam, Netherlands next month. Few Questions.

      Amsterdam Jul 28, 2015 at 4:10 AM

      Hello All,
      I'm planned to travel to Amsterdam, Netherlands in first week of September. I'm expected to be there for 6 months. Since it would be my first foreign trip, I'd some questions to ask. It would really be helpful if you could spare some of your precious time and guide me up on few things. Basically, I hail from New Delhi, India.
      1. How's the atmosphere there in Netherlands. I mean security for expats. Well, this is not of much concern, but still thought of asking.
      2. I'm a pure Vegan. So, are there Veg foods available in Amsterdam. Also, if I consider to prepare on my own at my residence, will I be getting the raw stuff there (Like Lentils, and other Indian spices).
      3. Are there some specific things which you want to advise me to bring specifically from India which are not available in Amsterdam.
      4. The pay which I'm expected to receive in Amsterdam would be around EUR 2500 + Fully furnished accommodation. Can you please let me know whether this is sufficient to live there. Just to mention, I'm a teetotaler, so at least there would be no expenses on Alcohol.
      Any other advise is welcomed.
      Thanks a lot in advance!
      Best Regards,
