comment Train and tram tickets in Amsterdam?
An addition about the train tickets: you can indeed still buy paper tickets. The price for a ticket from Schiphol to Amsterdam CS is €4. Also I noticed that The Hague CS ticket machines take foreign credit cards, there is a surcharge of €0.5. I assume the surcharge is the same in Schiphol or Amsterdam.

comment Kids not allowed into sauna in Serbia
I think in general this is a reasonable question, however the second part about how to overcome this restriction is not really helpful for future user of this site, and it's probably not going to happen. The sauna has these rules (for whatever reason, it's their company) and they are enforcing them. If they would let you in with your child (even if you have some strong arguments), this creates a precedent for other parents who might see the kid and ask why your child is allowed and theirs is not. I would suggest editing out the second question.

To be more concrete: in New Zealand it wouldn't be an unusual request at a hostel?

comment How friendly is the Netherlands to vagabonds?
Camping outside campsites... is not allowed. While true 90% of the time, there's a thing called paalkampeerplek (which roughly translates to pole campingground) which are places throughout the woods were you are allowed to camp "in the wild". There are no facilities, just a sign saying you're allowed to stay there. Here's more info on it (in Dutch).

comment How do EU citizens claim healthcare bills in the Netherlands with the EHIC?
Best would be to call your insurance company and ask. You should do it anyway as from experience with my own insurance company I know that they very much want to know before you go to a specialist that you are in medical trouble. They might not reimburse you (or cause a hard time) if you don't notify them as quickly as possible after concluding that you need medical help.
