Holland or the Netherlands, does not matter who named it or how it is spelled, it is a place of water and the inhabitants have taken to it like ducks. Even here in the big city of Amsterdam you can see many people living in houseboats along the canals, some very elaborate and some with wood siding like in a stationary home. In the third picture here you can even see that the houseboat has an address and even a mailbox...now what does the person do if he moves the boat 50 meters down the canal, does that change his address???
