Some countries take some time to warm to, but when we arrived in Netherlands we were almost immediately in love with it. The airport was clean and organised, and the people at the car rental place were prepared and friendly and we even got upgraded to a bigger car! Linda even found some delicious Vlaamse frites (chips and mayonnaise) [okay officially that's Belgian, but like lots of things in the Netherlands, like the Belgian beers, the Indonesian food, and the amazing language skills, you won't end up caring too much where it originates].
Delftware in the tourist shops.
broodje haring (raw herring sandwich), which we decided we didn't need to finish.
