Why you should check your guidebook is up-to-date

Today is April 30th. Queens Day.

Except that this year we had Kings Day, on April 26th (27th from next year - it can't be on a Sunday).

Sadly not everyone visiting the Netherlands has heard of this. At Schiphol there are people asking about getting into the city with it being so busy due to Queens Day, and there have been puzzled tourists, dressed in orange, spotted in Amsterdam, wondering where the big party is.

So, if you are heading for somewhere to celebrate a special day, check it hasn't changed date or been cancelled. Don't rely on that 5 year old copy of Fodors (other travel guides are also available) you borrowed from a friend/the library.
