    • 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

      Hi!

      It looks like I have a 9 hour layover. As I don't think I could possibly entertain myself for this long in the airport I'd love suggestions of what to do with that time. My flight gets in at 9:30 pm and I leave around 7:00am departure.

      What should I do/what's the best route for transportation?

      Thanks for your advice!

      Copenhagen snuff/smokeless tobacco/dipping/chewing tobacco

      Amsterdam Aug 7, 2015 at 12:04 PM

      Does anyone have experience bringing Copenhagen (or similar) smokeless tobacco through customs in Amsterdam? From what I have researched we are allowed 200 cigarettes OR 250 grams of "tobacco", and there will be a 147.7% tax on anything over the "250 grams tobacco" (cigarette overages are less). I think the intent is pipe or hookah, not dipping tobacco, but I’m going with "not rolled". I am also wondering if we should empty all those cans into a baggie or see if we can get the smoke shop here to put it in a labeled container. Either way we will get in the "red" line at customs and declare the overage, since no way our combined allotment will last him a month.

      Hotels in Amsterdam

      Amsterdam Aug 17, 2015 at 7:24 PM

      Have been looking online at hotels in Amsterdam for mid September for 3-4 nights. Is seems to me that if you don't book a hotel out side the city they are ridiculously expensive, at least for my wallet. Are the surrounding towns within a short distance to downtown Amsterdam. We would like to pay around 200$ Canadian so that would be around 150 Euros.
      Any suggestions for hotels.
      thanks

      Train from Paris to Amsterdam and back to Brussels

      Amsterdam Aug 15, 2015 at 6:16 AM

      Hi, my wife and I are going to Paris in early September and after a few days would like to go to Amsterdam and Brussels. Our plan is to take a train directly from Paris to Amsterdam and then make our way back to Brussels before flying back to Canada. My question is this is it better for us to get some sort of rail pass for a week or two or just pay as we go? We don't have any set agenda but would like to see several towns and cities along the way from Amsterdam to Brussels.
      Thanks

    • Outdoor activity clubs for international students

      Groningen May 25, 2014 at 4:12 AM

      Hi! I'm an international student at Groningen university who is really interested in outdoor activities. Back in English I went to Scouts for many years and even became a leader. I miss all the activities and fun we used to have, so I was wondering if there is a similar thing here for international students. Unfortunately my Dutch is not good enough to join a Dutch speaking group, so really the association would need to speak English. I am trying really hard to improve my Dutch though. So basically what I am looking for is an English speaking outdoors activity group, if anyone can help me I would be very appreciative. Thanks!

    • Museum location

      Uithuizermeeden Oct 27, 2013 at 1:03 PM

      I have visited Uithuizen and Uithuizermeeden several times, having had friends who lived in the area. The entire area is most beautiful, and if I could live in Holland (which is on my Bucket List), it would have to be Uithuizen or Uithuizermeeden. One of the places I visited was a small WWII museum, but I can't remember which town it was in. I remember it was in a very beautiful neighbourhood, with tree-lined streets, and immaculate houses, and the museum itself was nearly tree-covered. The museum had a mannequin of a Canadian soldier, whose uniform was that of a Royal Canadian Corps of Signals soldier. Can you tell me whether it is in "jou dorp of in Uithuizen".
