  Where rivers run through endless lowlands

Favorite thing: Amsterdam, despite it's arrogance still our capitol and the cultural centre of The Netherlands.

Must-do-activity is a canalboat-trip, but if you have some hours to spend: take the museumboat and hop on and of as many times as you want.

Fondest memory: Best memories of my country:

Landscape: (eternity) = sitting along a river, watching the water run by - forever.

Returning moment = first real springday, hooping on the bike and drive over the dikes.

Tolerance = walking through the Red-light-district in Amsterdam with my little son in his childrenswagen, while hookers smile and come to watch the baby.

City = Arnhem, my hometown, with it's natural surroundings of three landscapes: riverlands, forest and the town.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
