    • November in Giethoorn?

      Giethoorn 7 hours ago

      Curious if everything is still open in November? is there enough to do to spend one night and plan a day there or is there any other area that would be preferable during this time of year, we were planning on heading up here for a day and then going to Delft and Den Hague for the 2nd night. Amsterdam is already planned for another weekend and we were hoping to see a smaller more quaint area. Thanks!

    • 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?

      (the U.S. astronaut, Jack Lousma is related)

      The records show they lived there, or in the area, about 1855. Does anyone have information about that family name.

      Hi everybody

      I want to take a quick holiday on Terschelling in June but I was wondering if it's going to be crowded with tourists.

      I'm really looking for a nice, quiet holiday to enjoy the beach and the wind so I prefer not too much people. Bit selfish... ;)

      I like to hear from you guys! If it's the case that june's a busy month on Terschelling, which months would you suggest to go for a quiet holiday?

      thanks, groetjes van Vlaanderen, Elke
