I agree that if you waste this chance for travel you will regret it forever. The Netherlands are great. Everyone is friendly, the women are attractive, the food is awesome and the partying is unbridled (Ooh, I like that word!).
Wait a minute! I agree with all of the statements above EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE: <> In the Netherlands, are you joking me??? I guess if you like potatoes and Gouda cheese then the food is awesome. I mean, every time I have been in Holland I have been pretty stoned most of the time,had the munchies and even under those circumstances I couldn’t call the food awesome. I mean, yeah, the food is better than in England or Finland…but if you’ve eaten much English or Finnish food, you know that’s not saying much.
Now, for the rest, I agree the Netherlands is a wonderful country. In some ways more civilized than the rest of the world.
