Tour Belgium, the Netherlands & Switzerland On Line (Video + Stills)

My movie “Tulips That Yodel” tours Belgium, the Netherlands, (Holland) and Switzerland. Stars include a World War I trench museum, Bruges, the lovely Keukenhof Gardens, Dutch Windmills, Amsterdam (with its canals & a coffee house that sells pot), the mighty Matterhorn, and a great Swiss folklore show making music from “instruments” you may see nowhere else, plus yodeling.

“Tulips That Yodel” can be seen on the web, if you have a high speed internet connection. This is a free, non-commercial, streaming video on the Windows Media Player. No ads and no strings attached.

With historic houses and digital effects.

Is Hostel Right for Me???

Hey All,
I’m planning an off season trip to Europe next month and am wondering if a hostel would be good for me. I’m 40 years old, young at heart and ready to have a great time in Amsterdam but wondering am I too old for staying in hostels?

I’d stay in hotels but hostels are better for my budget. Also not sure but am I getting this right that private rooms can be had for only $10-15 per night? How do they do this?

Help with Eurorail!

Hello all,

So i have a big trip that i just started planning and saving for. I am going next mid april til mid june. Going to ireland, england, paris, italy, switzerland, denmark, belgium, austria, greece, sweden…2 months… most places i am staying 3-4 days but Italy and Switzerland there are about 4 cities in each country I would like to visit so I am staying in Italy for 9 days and switzerland for 14. Flying in to London, England then want to head to Dublin then Dublin to paris and all around Europe from there. Is the Eurorail 2 month pass the right choice for me?

Northern Europe

So, I have been thinking of planning a trip to the region, Stockholm in specific. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some general advice for the area? Where should I visit, where shouldn’t I?

Another thing I’m unsure about is money. I’d like to go cheap, but buying clothes and stuff would be nice. In general, is Sweden expensive to visit? What about other Scandinavian countries? Am I best off to stay in hostels?

Thanks in advance. I ask a lot of questions, I know.

One final one, should I whip out some Robyn cds now, or later? hahaha

Scandinavia advices

I’m planning to go to Scandinavia (Sweden-Norway-Denmark) this spring for a month or so and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where i should go! I’m thinking of Copenhagen-Malmo(Lund)-Stockholm-Oslo-Bergen, but I would also like to get off the beaten track, to see what the country is really about!

I’m thinking of landing in Amsterdam before heading to Copenhagen. If so, should i make a stop in Hamburg? I’m not really into «twelve cities in twenty days» kind of trip, so would those two stops be too much?

Thanks for your advices!
