Back From Netherlands

Back from the Netherlands

I just got back from a one week skating holiday in the Netherlands. The main reason for my visit was to catch up with the Ying/Daavis family in Utrecht. I had not seen them for quite a while.

Speedskating - or simply skating as the Dutch call it - is the national winter sport so there are a lot of 400m ice tracks is such a small country - 23 main ones at least.
You can practice your dutch on this site. Check out the different kinds of skates on the "schaatssoorten" link.
