Subject: Holland
Gretchen, I am originally from Holland and agree with you that hiring a bike is a super idea as you can move around quicker as well as see more and feel part of the country. May I suggest that you visit Madurodam, a miniature village (35 plus acres(!) of the Dutch history as well as the future, it has examples of its architecture through the decades, art, technology etc. It's well worth it. It is near The Hague. Look it up at They have wonderful information and maps how to get there you can print off, good luck & have fun, make sure you also go &see the cheese markets at Alkmaar and sample the specialised chocolate shops, yum!.

Have any of you been to Robert Kiyosaki's seminars or read his books, heard his tapes Rich Dad Poor Dad? He has a wonderful scheme to write off all our wonderful trips, legally from tax, I'm having a ball and can afford to go far further and more often. Well recommended reading and investing in. Cheerio, Margaretha
