Sam: The bridge is quite innovative use of fabric and tension cables.

Brigitta:

I used the Floriade bus. Since I had EURO in cash, it was easy to make a reservation from AMS to Venlo and back.

Which mode of public transportation would be most convenient for a non-backpack carrying person to go to Floriade 2012 from either Schiphol Airport, or Amsterdam ?

Comment by Brigitta on July 16, 2012 at 11:48am

Hi David, sounds like an interesting card! Actually never heard about it until you raised your question. I in general use my regular credit cards, or just pin cash (Euros), using a trustworthy ATM, such as ABN-AMRO or ING bank ATMs. Note: credit cards are not as widely accepted in Holland (except for maybe Amsterdam) as e.g. in the US. Dutch stores use something called a "pin pas," which is not accessible to foreigners. Always check before you buy or order something what methods of payment are accepted. My other question is: IF you lose your currency card, is the money you loaded onto it lost? Or does the company have an insurance policy (such as credit card companies have) when your card gets stolen or you lose it?
