Re: DutchGirl's journal

Not want to kill your spring-vibe... But the (real!) cold is coming to The Netherlands next week.
Depending on where you live... Snow! (north + perhaps east also)

And it will get COLD.
High pressure above Scandinavia... Pack some extra blankets ;-)

Re: DutchGirl's journal

Another Dutchie here... You are totally right about the cheap appartments in, for example, Assen. The north and east of the Netherlands has quite some low priced houses. Although the work oppertunities are a LOT less there, compared to the south and the west. Also travel in the Netherlands is not th...
