      Netherlands Feb 6, 2015 at 8:45 AM

      Hello,
      We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids (13yrs)) planning a visit to Netherlands in early April. Our base will be Amsterdam. Our itinerary
      Day 1) City of Amsterdam
      2) Zaanse Shans - 1/2 day (train), other half in Amsterdam
      3) Keukonauf - Full day trip (train,bus,taxi?)
      4) Amsterdam - Den Haag (train)- spend half a day, Den Haag-Rotterdam(train)- Spend half a day, Rotterdam-Amsterdam (train)

      Currently Day 2 and Day 3 fall over a weekend. I wanted to find out what are the best available options for transportation? I have read about OV-Chipkaart online but cannot quite understand it.

      Should we get day passes? Is it cheaper to individual buy train tickets for each day? How does OV-Chipkaart help with these trips?

      Thank you for any help

      The people coming with me know how to ride a bike, but are not in 100% fit (just regular people which don't train).

      Will the trip be too hard/impossible?

      Should we rent an electric bike instead?

      I was in Utrecht 2 weeks ago. Whenever I go to the Netherlands I shop in a store called DIDI. While walking through the Utrecht train station, I spotted a DIDI Outlet Store! 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 ....
