Typical Dutch, the Snackbar
Typical Dutch: The snackbar
Of course you can find all the well known fast food chains in The Netherlands. McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, Subway, etc.
But we have a type of fast food restaurants most foreigners heave never heard of: the 'snackbar’!
The basic food which you all know is french fries.
You can eat them with a variety of sauces like mayonaise, ketchup, curry, or peanut sauce.
French fries are called ‘patat’ in Dutch. For example, a ‘patat oorlog’, (in English) ‘french fries war’, is served with mayonaise and peanut sauce.
A ‘patat speciaal’ (special) you eat with mayonaise, curry or ketchup and onion.
Apart from french fries, or chips if you like, you can choose from many snacks unknown to most foreigners.
Populair are the ‘kroket’, the ‘frikandel’ and ‘sate’.
A original kroket is a crispy crust with inside a ragout with minced meat. Today there are several variants available. For example with shrimps, vegetables, sate, etc.
A frikandel is a skinless deep-fried sausage.
When you order a ‘frikandel speciaal’ they cut it open and cover it with mayonaise, curry or ketchup, and onion.
Sate includes three skewers with chunks of meat, topped with peanut sauce. Originally it is an Asian dish.
Some snackbars have an ‘automatiek’. It’s a wall with lots of small drawers with snacks. They have glass windows so you can choose your snack. After you have inserted coins you can open them.
Food from the wall, they call it.

SUPPORT OUR WORK:
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started “travel hacking” and taking more trips together and finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and travel hacking over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this YouTube channel to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling. So we extended our 1 year trip to THREE years :) Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before 2020! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

Visit The Netherlands - What to Know Before You Visit The Netherlands
Read the Blog for More Information on The Netherlands:
Heading to The Netherlands & Not Sure What to Expect? Well here we go through the top things that tourists should know when they visit The Netherlands.
1. It is The Netherlands, Not Holland. Holland is the name of two counties in The Netherlands.
2. The language of The Netherlands is Dutch, but as a tourist you really do not need to know any Dutch as the Dutch speak English extremely well throughout the country.
3. The Euro is the currency in The Netherlands and you can find ATMs all over the country. Credit cards are widely accepted as well.
4. The Netherlands is a small country with a very well developed transportation network. Therefore you can easily take trains all over the country in a fast and efficient way. Make sure you tap in and out with your tickets as you enter your platforms.
5. Biking is a very popular pastime and way to get around Dutch cities. There are a number of bike rental agencies throughout The Netherlands. Look for one near a train station and rent a bike for the day to explore, or sign up for one of the numerous bike tours around the country.
6. The Netherlands is rather safe for tourists. Do take care with pickpockets and extremely aggressive beggars in Amsterdam's more popular areas. The bike line is for bikes only so watch out unless you want to get hit by a bike and yelled at by a local.
7. Drugs bring a lot of tourists to Amsterdam and the Dutch/German border. If you are going to The Netherlands to experiment with soft drugs make sure you go to a Coffee House they have menus and trained personnel that can help travelers. We do not recommend you do drugs and highly discourage travelers from doing this. However, we do know a number of tourists do go there for that. So please be safe, and speak with the coffee shop attendant about your previous experiences so they can help you.
9. The best things about the Netherlands are the quaint cities and towns like Haarlem, Leiden, Groningen, as well as the larger cities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The architecture and museums throughout the country really are outstanding. And yes you will see quite a few windmills as you explore The Netherlands.
10. The food is hearty in The Netherlands, make sure you try a bitter ballen or a traditional pancake or herring from one of the stalls. The market and food halls have tons of great treats for travelers. There are numerous international restaurants all over The Netherlands as well.
11. The Netherlands is not a cheap place to visit, however the prices are on par with the US & other major European destinations. Amsterdam accomodation will be your biggest expense. Therefore you may want to stay outside of Amsterdam to have a cheaper and more Dutch experience.

German Passport vs American Passport
Ever wonder what another country's passport looks like? In this video I will compare the German Passport to the US Passport!
Hi! I'm Kelly and I am an American who lived in Germany for 18 wonderful months. While I lived abroad before in Turkey and had done quite a bit of traveling beforehand, those 18 months in Germany definitely broadened my perspective of Germany, Europe, and even the US in so many different ways! I wanted to share my perceptions with you guys through YouTube so that maybe you can gain context to things you've heard about, or learn new information or a different perspective, or maybe this is everything you've heard before and further confirms your world view. No matter what the reason, I hope that you enjoy my videos! Don't forget to subscribe to my channel and turn on notifications so that you always know when I'm posting new content :)

German cycle paths vs. Dutch cycle paths
Updated version of this video:
Book Study Tour:
Recently the German ADFC came out against cycle paths. However, well designed cycle paths are not really a problem, even if German cycle paths are.
Dutch cycle paths are not built to the same standards as those elsewhere in the world.
The video shows a few examples of similar situations that I just happen to have videod in both Germany and the Netherlands. A similar thing could be seen by comparing other similar situations. Due to the infrastructure design, cycling in NL is far more pleasant and far more convenient than cycling in Germany.
The Dutch infrastructure has resulted in the highest rate of cycling in the world, and the safest cyclists in the world.

Holland, Netherlands, Dutch, Deutsch. What's the difference? - Holland Holiday
What is the difference between Holland and The Netherlands and between Dutch and Deutsch?
All over the world our country is wellknown as Holland.
In fact this is not correct.
We show you the map of The Netherlands. Two provinces in the west are called Holland, divided in North and South Holland. But our country has more provinces. A total of twelve. Al together they are called ‘The Netherlands’. So the official name is The Netherlands.
It means The Low Countries. The name refers to the fact that half our country is below sea level.
Even more confusing is the fact that the people in The Netherlands are called ‘The Dutch’. When a foreigner asks for our nationality we have to answer ‘Dutch’. Generally the reaction is: ah ‘Deutsch’.
No Dutch, from Holland we make clear.
When you are Deutsch you are a German.
When you are Dutch you are from The Netherlands (or Holland if you like).
To learn more about the origins of the names Dutch, Holland and The Netherlands visit HollandHoliday.net
WHICH TRAIN IS BEST? DUTCH OR GERMAN?
After Swiss and Lufthansa, we are now comparing NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen) and DB (Deutsche Bahn). They are main train operators in The Netherlands and Germany, respectively. Take a look at our way to make the trip more fun :D Anyway, this is completely our subjective impression after taking the train for more or less 12 hours journey return. Please let us know if we made mistake in showing what we saw.
