comment Is there an online map or other resource that lists windmills in the Netherlands?
@Bernhard I didn't think of any area in particular. I thought they were evenely spreaded around the country. I might prefer center/south. But it's not a requirement at all.

comment Why don't they give you a sweet on take-off anymore?
:) I would say there is no need due to the price battle. Every penny counts.

comment What are the two closest countries that do not share a border?
Can you clarify your question? I am not sure that qualifies as not sharing a border. They share a border. It's simply a river. Somewhere in the river there's the "imaginary" lines that separates both countrys.

comment Any alternative ways to find hostels than hostelworld or hostelbookers
It's not uncommon that hostels distribute their available beds/rooms through 2 or 3 systems. They also often keep a few for "walk-ins". So, contacting them might be an option. Another option is checking the websites frquently. The available "spare" beds may be put online if there are no "walk-ins" or if there is someone not showing up.

comment Where and when is the best time to see the tulip fields in the Netherlands?
@JonathanReez true. Also the angle of the photo that shows a nice landscape. If you're at the tulip level you probably wont get these perspectives a flower extensions.

@MarkMayo after reading your question I have to admit they are very similar. Still my question is bit broader. I would also like to get good ideas/tactics to split the money, etc.

comment How to deal with inaccurate luggage weighing scales at an airport
That's a good answer/solution, but it still brings us to a fundamental problem. Why would the person behind the desk trust the traveler scale?

comment How to deal with inaccurate luggage weighing scales at an airport
I don't know about the US, but in Europe, at least some coutries, the scale is inspected every year. It's mandatory to have a certification. Having this said, it's not impossible that for some strange reason the scale breaks. In general your question makes sense. I've been in similar situations where you either pay or loose the flight. The companies know this and you are clearly the weakest link. I would also like to know what are your rights at the airport, specially if you loose a flight ant it's proven you are right.

comment Are shops and museums open on Sunday in Belgium?
@Blackbird57 When you travel you don't know what you're going to discover. That's also the beauty of traveling, not? Of course you can check about known museuns/shops before you travel, but you're going into the unknown. You may find a small local "thing" "off track" and is closed.

I just think some additional information would help improve the answer.

road or off-road? camping or not? taking your own meals or buying along the way? weather conditions/which season? mountain or flat terrain? do you have previous experience or not?

comment Can I buy pressure cookers and mixer grinders in Poland?
I can't speak for all Europe and it's not definitly the first think I look for when travelling around. but I pay attention if I see a cooking devices shop. It's not widely available in "any corner" but these devices are not hard to find.

Really true... it's amazing the weight of the bags. It can be well worth it to invest in something lite.

Great image. It really helps. Do you have something similar for the relation of the ear and the eyes?
