We visited Netherlands in 1984 and in 1985.

In 1984 we toured the Netherlands fairly extensively, as well driving to Switzerland via Belgium and Germany. We also travelled by train to France.

In 1985 we boarded the Rhine steamer, Helvetia in Strasbourg for a Rhine river cruise, to Amsterdam. When we sailed past Utrecht, Hennie Beers was waving to us from his balcony. We had travelled to Strasbourg by train, from Munich.

After spending a week or so in Holland we went back to Luxembourg , where we flew back to Johannesburg.

In 2001 we decided to emigrate to Netherlands, basing ourselves in Utrecht.
