Hi Angela, I also was told that Scheveningen was used as a password in the war by the resistance, because the Germans could not pronounce it properly!

Hi Angela,  Amsterdam is indeed one of my favourite places in this big world, perhaps more home to me than my native London in some ways.  I lived in various quarters, including the Vondel Park area on Koninginesweg (which I don't think I spelt properly), the Jourdaan, Osdorp and right on the Prinsengracht for a couple of years.  My most recent sojourn in Holland was from 2012 to 2014 when I lived in Scheveningen in the Hague while working for the Canadian Embassy there.  I really do love the Netherlands and still have many friends there so hope to visit again.
