    • Holland pass . Is it worth ?

      Amsterdam Yesterday

      We are four people going to Amsterdam for two days. We are planning to visit Anne franks house , kuekenhof gardens, two hour city bus tour, rjiksmuseum , Van Gogh museum , vondlepark and go to dam square .
      We read that the pass does not involve ride to scipol airport . So should we buy holland pass or travel on our own ?
      Does it prove to be cheaper ?
      Also , can we buy the holland pass in Amsterdam itself or is it necessary to buy it online ?

      I will be traveling on a barge for 2 weeks in the Netherlands, and will need a sim card for my dongle.

      The dongle supports the 850 and 2100 mhz bands.

      I only want it for internet, not phone.

      Any recomendations on a provider to go with for this, and what the price rang will be?

      Also, can I get the sim card at the airport? or would it be cheaper elsewhere?

      Hello fellow travellers,

      I'm traveling to Amsterdam by car at the end of this month and I was wondering if you can help me out to find parking. I need long-term parking so I can leave my car for 4 days and then travel around by public transport. It would be even better if I can take out my car once in a while.

      Please suggest parking that is secure and easily accessible, not necessarily in the city center (I assume thats expensive).

      Roermond Apr 7, 2014 at 7:34 AM

      Hi,

      I am possibly moving to Roermond or Maastricht on a permenant basis. I have not spent much time in Roermond so I was wondering what the nightlife was like in general for people of my age (32). I am not looking for it to be bustling but some life particularly on weekends would be good.

      Also, I found Maastricht to be fairly metropolitan with many English speaking people - probably due to the university. Is Roermond much the same or is it mainly populated by Dutch people.

      Any reply from somebody with experience of these city's would be a great help.

      Thank you :)

      I am doing a round trip in Europe TPE-AMD-WAW-MSK-BEG-AMD-BRU-AMD-TPE, while first stop at AMD supposed to be transit. However, for the first part of AMD-WAW-MSK-BEG-AMD, I would like to leave the luggage at the Schiphol Airport baggage depot.

      I found online that Baggage Depot at Schiphol Airport is at the arrival hall, so have some questions:
      1. Does it mean I must to first enter the country and leave my bag at baggage depot and depart again?
      2. Can I check in 1 bag TPE-AMD-WAW all the way and another TPE-AMD and only clear this one for baggage depot? Or must I clear 2 bags and recheck in for AMD-WAW?
      3. Does anyone have any idea if baggage depot opens on Easter Monday?

I was thrilled to find it and went in. I found out I had 5 minutes till the store closed and with my husband we picked out as much as I could try on in that time.

      I am wondering if I could call the store and get them to send some stuff to the USA for me? Do you think it's a long shot and how can I get the email or any contact information for the store? Hmmm ....

      I am going to travel to Utrecht Station (Centraal). Is this near the Tivoli? i.e How many minutess in a taxi or by walking? Based on this I will then book a hotel in the area. I also read about the zandpond houseboats. I would like to visit this area but I wonder is it sage area to travel? I am not interested in ladies but just do not want to find any trouble. I am sensible person who can avoid all trouble. Is this far from the Tivoli or central station?

    • Grocery Store in Utrecht

      Where can our grandson (a student) purchase groceries for a "thanksgiving dinner" in Utrecht? This would be items like cranberries, pumpkin pie mix, etc.
      He can possibly shop in person (on his bike) or have the items delivered. He lives on Cambridgelaan.

      Would appreciate an early response. Thank you.

      How many rooms are in the Huis Doorn Manor House and in the Gate House? Did the Kaiser's staff live there also. My grandfather Otto Schwarz, German musician performed there weekly in 1923 with a small ensemble. What room would music have been performed in? I am presently writing my grandfather's biography, and would appreciate a photo of the manor house, and possibly the music room to use in the book. Thank you.

      Hi everyone!!
      I just arrived to Utrecht and I'm looking forward to learn some Dutch and more about the life and culture here. I´m originally from Mexico, but have lived abroad for around4 years. If you are interested in learning Spanish, or practice it in exchange of basic Dutch lessons :D don't hesitate in contacting me.
