Expatica Article: Old Europe - glorious or just mouldy

This blog entry in Expatica was dated 10 August 2006.

As the Netherlands is strategically located in the heart of Europe, the country deserves a nomination as the perfect home base when travelling to other European cities, villages and islands.

And because of this, I delight.


I delight in the idea that I can explore another country with just a car.


I delight in the idea that the rest of Europe is just one to three hours away by plane.


I delight in the idea that I can experience another culture so easily and so nearby.


I delight in the idea that I can travel back through time and history when visiting these places.


I delight in the idea that I can always have a weekend escape somewhere in Europe without costing me an arm and a leg.


I delight in the idea that the Europeans themselves are very passionate about travelling, hence the wide array of attractive holiday packages available at my fingertips, the cut-throat competition that helps bring down the prices, and the scores of last-minute offerings that is now flooding my computer screen!


Ah, I just delight in travelling.
