    • Football tickets

      Amsterdam Sep 1, 2016 at 1:52 AM

      Looking for Football tickets. Would like to see Ajax, PSV or Feyenoord play while in the Netherlands. Will be in Amsterdam for 16 days starting next Friday. I am particularly looking for 2 tickets for Feyenoord vs Manchester United on September 15th or PSV vs Feyenoord on September 18th. So if anyone knows how I can go about purchasing tickets for when I am in Amsterdam that would be great.

    • Local prepaid phones, SIM cards, travel pass?

      Amsterdam Sep 18, 2016 at 4:38 PM

      I will be in Belgium and the Netherlands for 2.5 weeks. All I'd like to be able to do is text travelling companions (also Canadians) in the event that we get separated. A travel pass for CAD 60 to my Bell Mobility plan would give unlimited calling and texting for a month. I found this: and am wondering if it is a viable option.

    • How can I work as fitness trainer in Amsterdam?

      Amsterdam Sep 16, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      I'm an young Italian girl (30 years old) who has a passionate personal involvement in fitness classes in particular Total body, G.A.G. and H.I.I.T.
      I have just returned from a luxury resort in Zanzibar where I worked as fitness trainer for 3 months. All of my experience comes from my work in the field so I never had time to do a course to obtain a valid faster certificate to teach in your country. But I am very interested to do it.

      I will travel very soon in Europe, in particular in Amsterdam. Can someone help me with some information?

      1) Is it necessary a Degree in Sport sciences?
      2) What kind of certificate I have to bring? How can I do that?

      I didn't live yet in Amsterdam but I really hope it’s going to be my next stop and I want to live there for a while.
      I'm grateful if you can help me with these information.
      Thanks to all!!

    • Schiphol to Bruges

      Netherlands Sep 1, 2016 at 12:30 PM

      We need to get from the Amsterdam airport to Bruges, with a layover for lunch in Ghent, on Sat. Sep. 24. If we book online through Rail Europe, there is an economy fare for $58 on a Thalys train leaving Cs at 9:44, changing trains in Antwerp, and arriving Ghent 12:33. The tickets are non-refundable. We would have to take a train from the airport to the Central Station; apparently they run every 20 min at a fare of CAD $10 (perhaps less locally?).

      There are also IC trains: open tkts and stops along the way for $102: leave Schiphol at 10:07 arrive Ghent 2:07. If we land on time and clear customs quickly, we might be able to leave Schiphol at 9:07 and arrive Ghent 1:07.

      The tickets / fare to Bruges quoted above allow a layover.

      Any comments / suggestions / alternatives?

      1. Can I do the walking tour using a Tourist map from Tourist office or is it better to go with a guide?
      2. In some cities, locals can act as a guide and charge €5 for 2 hours. Is this possible in Groningen?
      3. What about a cycle tour around Groningen? Is this recommended?

    • Outdoor activity clubs for international students

      by emmajameson27 Online Now 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!
