Yes, we're everywhere

A friend of mine often went on holiday to Sicily, but he always went by plane.

Mediterranean and Alps... I guess that would prevent many family debates about whether to spend the summer vacation on the seaside or in the mountains .

If you go around Europe all you see are Dutch caravans.

Yeah, the perfect combination. It would be quite a steep cliff though

I saw one car with a NL license plate today near a supermarket (Rimi) in Jelgava center.

True. Especially in the summerholidays. Drive through France, Italy or Germany. There are Dutch cars everywhere.. And we are such a small nation....

Yeah, I was once driving on the A31 northbound in France, and over half of the traffic was Dutch...

I don't mind not to encounter Dutch people on vacation. So, I really don't understand why many people go to certain parts of Italy, France or Spain which look more like Dutch exclaves.

When I was on holiday in Slovakia I met one Dutch family in the High Tatras. I didn't mind not to meet more fellow Dutchmen. For instance, when I was in Italy, the whole camping was either Dutch or Flemish

Also true. My parents don't like it to see Dutch people on their vacation. Most of the times their behavior is bad, and the local population might get a bad image of Dutch people.. For example Benidorm or other places in Spain. They are total overwhelmed by Dutch peope, who are behaving drunk, asocial and stuff. They even build their own snackbars with Dutch specialities overthere!! It's crazy..

As soon as a camping appears in the Dutch ANWB Camping Guide you can be sure that next summer the whole camping is either Dutch or Flemish

That's why I don't go on vacation during July.

Campings are a nice way to get around Europe with a low budget. Motels are easy like € 40 per night, while I haven't found much more expensive campsites than € 20, but also as low as € 8 for one person.

You have the choice; families with children have to go in July or August, because they have to go in the school holidays.

Dutch people are bigheaded and ignorant, except the older Dutch people and it is so typical for Dutch people to do camping, altough they have the money to go in good hotels. I can´t understand that, why go camp instead of having a real holiday. German people learn and get modern now, more and more european, but it seems Dutch people still like the oldfashioned camping, that´s just typical.

Hotels are tourist factories. I don't like them. Camping is for me more relaxing.

Here the camps are usually filled with the Germans. Why do you think camping is oldfashioned?
