    • Groningen : recommended bicycle stores?

      Netherlands Nov 4, 2015 at 1:46 PM


      I'll be visiting Groningen next month, and was curious to know if there are bicycle stores that particularly stand out:

      I'm especially interested in cargo bikes, since I'm thinking of getting a two-wheeled cargo bike.

      Thank you.

      1)are the train tickets cheaper if you buy online in advance? (eg.from Eindhoven to Rotterdam)
      2)are there some train passes (some years before there were some weekend passes for tourists, but it was only in summer I think)

    • Weather in May

      Provincie Zeeland Oct 27, 2015 at 6:39 AM

      I'm considering an 8 day bike ride through Zeeland starting and finishing in Brielle. The route, of course, crosses a lot of bridges which, if the winds are blowing or it's normally raining could make it somewhat dangerous. I don't have the option of sitting out one day if it doe rain as it's a progressive tour, moving each day to a different town/hotel.


    • End of Lichtjesavond 2015

      Delft Nov 22, 2015 at 8:56 AM

      I wonder when is usually Lichtjesavond Delft ended? I am thinking of not booking any accommodation, instead spending the night enjoying the Lichtjesavond or sit somewhere (at the train station maybe?) enjoying some chit chat and leave with the first train. Will it be feasible or it'll be a bad idea?

    • Bus Passes

      by CK5129 Online Now Jun 6, 2009 at 2:11 PM

      I'm just curious if they "punch" the bus passes when you use them or are they electronic? Is that the same for student passes?

    • Loved Brunssum (and area)

      by KisJutka Online Now May 3, 2006 at 1:28 PM

      Firstly, I just wanted to thank everyone here for all of their advice, help, and tips -- it made a big difference in knowing what to expect.

      We are moving to Brunssum and were there a while ago looking for a place to live and checking out the area. Both my husband were very impressed with the people (everybody was very nice and spoke English very well), we liked the area very much and felt good about the whole experience.

      I'm really looking forward to our move and am thinking that we will have a very positive experience living in the Netherlands.

      Thanks again for all your help!!!

    • Hotels in Brunssum?

      by KisJutka Online Now Mar 20, 2006 at 9:43 AM

      I am looking for a hotel in Brunssum or very close.

      The only place I've found is the Hotel Golf-Residentie Brunssummerheide -- it looks very nice, but is it walking distance from the city?

      I also found the Best Western Grand Hotel in Heerlen, which looks great too, but I would prefer to be right in Brunssum if that's possible.

      Thank you!!

The only I can remember is the last time she lived in BRUNSSUM with her husband Martin. Last time we met about 1997 when they had holiday in Java. I will be very happy if I can contact her again. Now I'm married and living in Tacoma, Washington State, USA. I'll appreciate if someone can help me. Thank you so much!.

    • Speak English in Brunssum?

      by KisJutka Online Now Dec 9, 2005 at 4:25 AM

      My husband's work hasn't 100% decided that we're coming to Brunssum, but it's looking good. :) We will know in a month or two. I've very excited! I hope that he gets the job.

      I have heard people say that everyone speaks English everywhere, including the Netherlands. I realize that English is pretty universal, but I don't like to make that kind of assumption.

      If my husband gets this job, should I learn at least some Dutch?

      Personally, I think that when you move to another country it's respectful to at least try to learn some of their language instead of expecting them to just know your language.

      Thank you in advance for your answers!

    • May be moving to Brunsum... would like some info please

      by KisJutka Online Now Oct 14, 2005 at 12:26 PM

      Hello all!

      My husband and I may be moving to Brunssum next year from Canada. I've been trying to find info on Brunssum on the web and the best information I've gotten has been from here! :)

      But I'm still curious about a few things. Moving to Europe sounds wonderful, but my concerns are more about the day to day things:

      1) Can I purchase English books and magazines easily?
      2) Is digital cable TV/satellite TV/high speed internet available in Brunssum? Can I watch TV in English?
      3) Is there a good transport system? (I know there's no train station, but is it far away?)
      4) How can we look for a houses to rent?
      5) Are there lots of things to do entertainment wise?
      6) How far is Amsterdam by bus or driving?

      Any other information would be appreciated as well.

      Thank you in advance for your help. :)
