When you come to the Netherlands and have more time than one week, go to one of the islands, like Terschelling or Ameland. We did already when I was 3 years old, as I can remember very well.
As you see the brat on the right is me on the island of Terschelling together with my big brother.
Gazing at the dutch army who were doing some exercise on the beach. Yep then I think my interest for aviation was founded.
