Don't #1. Don't Call The Netherlands, Holland. Holland is actually only two of the twelve counties in The Netherlands.
Don't #2. Don't Think the Netherlands is Just Amsterdam. There are tons of other towns, cities and villages to visit. From the flowers in Keukenhof to the Beauty of Groningen.
Don't #3. Don't Be stupid with Drugs or Alcohol when you visit. The coffeeshops are world famous and you should never buy drugs off the street.
Don't #4. Don't just bite into hot food. The Dutch like their fried food hot as can be, so make sure you take a second to blow on it or else you might lose a few skin cells.
Don't #5. Don't Wander into the Bike Lanes in The Netherlands. Those bikes will get you.
Don't #6, Don't Take the Dutch Attitude Personally. The Dutch are very straightforward and will ask you anything. So don't be upset, just know that is just how they are.
Don't #7. Don't Forget to Bring a chip card with a PIN number for purchasing from person-less kiosks & shops.
Don't #8. Have coins with you so you can pick up a snack on the go.
Don't #9. Don't Be Surprised if you see all the Dutch Tourism Stereotypes when you visit. From wooden shoes to windmills to cheese to really tall people on bikes, you will see them.
Don't #10. Don't forget to buzz your train ticket card when you enter and exit the platforms/stations.
Don't #11. Don't Take pictures of the girls in the windows in the Red Light District.
Don't #12. Don't Take the Hop On Hop Off Bus in Amsterdam. The bus cannot go a lot of places in the historic center. You would be better off on the hop on hop off canal boat.
Don't #13. Don't think that Amsterdam is just the red light district. It is so much more with culture, food, art.
Don't #14. Don't forget to Bring a jacket. It will rain while you are there, even if it says sunny.

Margraten Visit - April 19, 2005
Slide show of Jim Hoel's visit to the Netherlands American Cemetery on April 19, 2005. He was escorted by his son, Gil and two Dutchmen, John and Dennis Prooi (father and son). John grew up in Rozenburg, the village where Jim's B26 ditched on May 17, 1943. All ten B26's were shot down as they made landfall south of Rotterdam. 40 of the 60 airmen lost their lives that morning. Jim swam to shore, was captured by the Germans and spent the remainder of the war as a POW.
John and his son researched where each of Jim's fallen comrades were buried amongst the 8,302 grave sites of American soldiers. The group went to each of these sites during the visit to pay their respects

Aiko & Jack go to The Netherlands (June 2012)
In June 2012, we took a month off work and headed to the country where I was born - The Netherlands. When we first met, Aiko had shown me around her native Japan, and this time it was my turn to show her where I came from. We behaved totally like tourists, and had an awesome time! We stayed in Appingedam, Groningen City, and Amsterdam, but visited a few other places as well.
On the way back we stopped off in Singapore for a few days as well.
Positive comments are invited, negative comments will be deleted.
