Not always, but I do enjoy good food. I don't mean "fancy" stuff, just good cooking.

I had a goal, once, to visit every classic diner in the NE. Too many, but enjoyed it while eating and listening.

Road food remains my passion, and of course donuts, and ........... .

Say, I am kind of new to this FORUM, if I am doing too many just let me know.

Tightwad Dutchmen, pannekoeken en oliebollen - what's this forum about Airstreams coming to?

Remcolent's list is a good one. It's an unusual country, to be sure, but a beautiful place to visit. And you only need to learn one Dutch (sorry, make that Netherlandic) phrase - "Spreekt u het engels?" Literally, that's "speak you the English?" You will get an affirmative reply at least 90% of the time!

Cool

I prefer:

Ik spreek het geen Nederlands.

which means:

I don't speak Dutch.

Maybe not a literal translation, but that's what it means.

There is a post by a Dutchman that had his AS shipped home.

I found it was better to be ignorant, (not hard at all) and say "I'm an American. Do you speak English?" no matter what country I was in. Seldom failed, except in the Czeck Republc. German worked better there.
regards
