I am guilty as anything for living in an expat bubble and for chauffeuring my kids around from a safety perspective. In the UK we took our kids everywhere by car as we felt it unsafe to let them cycle or walk, as the roads were so busy and the worry of someone molesting them. It's true! Next September the eldest of my children goes up to High school in Wassenaar and wants to cycle about 5km to the School. I have no idea how safe the kids are here? I see kids as young as 9 or 10 cycling to school but do children go missing?

I have fair skin and I find that most of the foundations you get here are much darker and they don't tend to stock the fairer skin type.

I am still fairly new to Holland so I would like to ask a couple of questions. Why are the supermarkets so small and only sell the basic foods. Why don't they sell spirits in the supermarkets so you can buy everything in one shop Why don't they take credit cards in supermarkets? Thanks Mad

I have to go and have an X Ray, I am a bit of a prude, is it true that you don't get given a gown to change into, and you just walk into the X Ray room semi naked? It wouldn't surprise me!

A friend of mine has received an email saying that The British Consulate in Holland is no longer issuing passports. We either send them back to the UK or to Paris to be re -newed or to apply for a new one. We don't think this email is a scam but one never knows..

As I have young kids I am thinking of moving to Rotterdam with my partner this Summer. It seems like a lively city with lots of night clubs!. Where do most of the Expats tend to live? Anyone have any advice on any of the schools?

Is there some advice on moving Dutch children who have lived abroad for 6 years back to a Dutch school. They have a Dutch father but their main spoken language is English.

My son is going on a school trip next week and I need to buy him a sleeping bag. i don't want to spend a lot of money on it, it will most probably be lost or wrecked by the end of the week! Anyone got any ideas where I can buy one?

My husband has been working in the Netherlands for more or less 8 months and has been offered a permenant job, it's a great deal but I want to know why and what's in it for me and my 2 kids. We have managed so far with weekend visits and trips to Holland but feel it's a huge step for the kids, to uproot them from their schools, family and friends. What makes the country so great? My husband loves it, says he cycles everywhere.

Are there any quieter beaches near the Hague. We went up to Schveningen at the weekend, what a mistake -it was packed, we queued for hours to get there and once we eventually got sight of the sea we spent hours looking for a parking place. It seemed like the whole of Holland was there!

Postviral Guillain Barre Syndrome, has anyone heard of this condition? A collegue at my husband's office has been diagnosed with it and he's seriously ill in hospital on a ventilator. I've never heard of it before, I assume it's not contagious and curable?
