      New Year's Eve fireworks and transport

      Amsterdam Yesterday

      Hello... We may be able to be in Amsterdam for New Year's Eve and are wondering if it's worth it since we don't know the area very well and don't want to fuss over not knowing where we are or how to get where we want to be. Our hotel would be near the airport. So, our questions are... Where are some of the best places to be to watch the fireworks and how concerned should we be about safety? Also, will it be easy to return to the airport in the wee hours of the morning on New Year's Day? ...... Any info would be appreciated...... thnks............

      1-2 days: Utrecht and/or Rotterdam?

      Netherlands Dec 1, 2016 at 10:53 AM

      Helooouuu everyone. At the beginning of January I´m going to visit a cousin of mine who lives in Utrecht. We´ll probably meet in Amsterdam, spend a day there, and in the evening head to Utrecht. Initially the idea was to spend a day in Utrecht and then fly back home, but I´ve noticed Rotterdam isn´t that far. Now, should I be staying in Utrecht on Friday and spend the Saturday in Rotterdam, or is it too little time for 2 cities?

      Thanks in advance :D

    • Should I start cycling from Harleem or Leiden?

      Amsterdam Nov 17, 2016 at 4:58 PM

      Hi Everyone! I'm planning for my honeymoon trip to Amsterdam in May 2017. I intend to rent a bike and start cycling either from Harleem or Leiden (cycle by the flower field). Whichever start off point, I will make a U- turn back as cycling across towards the other side will take quite some time and i'm not quite sure if I can catch the off peak period to return to the original start off point by train. I understand that we can only bring our bike up the train during off peak period. Thus, i decide to cycle halfway and make a u turn. With this, i would like to ask, is the windmill at the flower field located at Harleem or Leiden?
      Thank you in advance for all answers.

      Peanuts in Amsterdam

      Amsterdam Nov 11, 2016 at 5:54 PM

      I am considering taken a trip with a granddaughter in June 2018 from Houston to Tanzania, and I will have to switch planes in either London or Amsterdam. I was thinking I would fly KLM. The child has a severe peanut allergy such that if she gets near a place which has had peanuts, she has an anaphylactic reaction and has to use an epi-pen and go to the ER immediately.

      Does anyone know if KLM still serves peanuts?

      And will it be a problem with eating in Amsterdam to avoid peanuts or places where peanuts would be in the food?

      Utrecht op Zondag

      Hi,

      Mijn ouders gaan op zondag 20 November met een bus naar de Verzamelaarsbeurs in Utrecht.

      Een aantal van de echtgenotes die meegaan, zijn niet zo erg geinteresseerd in die beurs, en die zouden liever in het centrum gaan wandelen (winkelen ?).

      Weet er iemand of er op zondag ook winkels open zijn in Utrecht?

      Dan kunnen we dit alvast meegeven met de dames, en kunnen ze hun verwachtingspatroon daar een beetje op instellen

      Vriendelijke groet - Filip

    • utrecht train station shopping

      by peghaynes Online Now Oct 7, 2010 at 7:33 AM

      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 ....

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?
