    Reading a map!

    by Jerelis Written Oct 24, 2013

    Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently?

    The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies tend to be more aggressive and females more passive. As adults, in spatial operations, men have the edge in such skills as negotiating a maze, reading a map, and quickly discriminating between right and left. Men also perform better than women when asked to visualize an object and imagine rotating it. On the other hand, women tend to perform better than men when asked to look at objects of different shapes, sizes, and colors, and then to group them in some order.

    This still doesn't explain why Relinde turns the map all around when I'm asking for the road to travel, while I like the map at one point so I can better visualize our position. Help!

    Do drink enough!!!

    by Jerelis Written Oct 24, 2013
    You really need it ...

    For years, we have all been told of the importance of water. The general guideline has been to drink 2 litre of water each day. For a person who is not living an active lifestyle this may be enough, but if you are physically active, you need more water than that. That is especially true if you are hiking in the Callantsoog area due to the fact the average temperature is much higher than other areas and the landscape with its dunes will go up and down.

    Water is essential for everyone, especially if you are hiking. Water helps almost every part of the human body function properly. Our bodies are almost two-thirds water, and proper hydration is essential to keep your body functioning properly during the hike. Some of the things water does in the body are:
    * The brain is 75% water; even moderate dehydration can cause headaches and dizziness;
    * Water regulates body temperature, which is especially important here in the area where the temperatures can be so brutal;
    * Water carries nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body
    * Blood is 92% water;
    * Water protects and cushions vital organs;
    ·* Water converts food into energy (which is something you will need on a 3 to 4 hour hike…);
    * Muscles are 75% water, and you will use many muscles on a trail as you climb above the desert floor.

    Bikes on the street

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Holland roads bikes have the right on everybody and everything, usually they run on dedicated places at the side of roads, but it can happen that you find them on normal roads, specially in city center, so pay attention and watch carefully.

    Road speedometer

    Pay attention while driving your car on the road.
    There are many speedometers ready to shot a picture of your license plates and give you a ticket. So read the road signs about speed limits.

    Speedometers are also well signaled.

    Wind

    Wind on the beach

    If you are not used to a windy climate you should avoid the seaside. Oh, well... I think that being such a flat country as the Netherlands is, whenever there is windy on the coast there is windy througout the country.
    Haven't been to Netherlands when it is really stormy, but some nice little winds after all.

    Beware of horse s*it!

    by Heinisuo Written Mar 18, 2003

    Watch out your steps while walking outside the town centre. Every now and then you can find yourself walking on some horse's bathroom.
    Nevertheless, they are not that bad. On my first day, after wandering around Noordwijk, I found my way back to my acommodation thanks to that piece of s*it on the road.

    sneaky bird

    After we bought our fish snack we sat on a bench nearby to eat them. The bird on the picture took several attempts to pinch my fish pieces from right in front of my mouth.
