What should I expect when voting in a Dutch municipal election?

I'm an American who has lived in Groningen for over 5 years. I am voting in the municipal elections this Wednesday, but I have no idea what to expect when I go to the voting location. My Dutch is not that great. If someone could fill me in on what I should expect when I go to vote, that would be great!

Must-do things in The Netherlands

I'm being sent on a whirlwind trip to the Netherlands - four days in Utrecht/Amsterdam. I'll basically have a day and a half (and possibly a couple of evenings) to see.. stuff! But I have absolutely no idea what's there. What should I see? What are the must-do's and can't-misses? [more inside]

Tourist visa extensions in the Schengen area

My family and I would like to spend an extended time (5-6 months or more) in Europe. My wife is a US/Canadian citizen (the rest of us are Dutch citizens), and that seems to present a problem if we want to stay more than 90 days, which is the maximum length of Schengen tourist status. I'm not getting very far trying to figure out if and how that time can be extended. The process seems to vary from country to country. We're pretty flexible about which countries we stay in, so which countries make this relatively easy and cheap? [more inside]

Unusual housing options in Leiden, the Netherlands?

I am moving from Germany to Leiden for one year. As this is a short amount of time, I want to investigate if there are any possibilities for unique housing situations (houseboats, co-ops, windmills (I'm joking about the windmills. No, I am only half-joking about the windmills.)). What are the options beyond renting a typical apartment? I am a professional in my 30's with no dependents and 3 suitcases of earthy possessions, so now seems like the perfect time for an adventure. My only requirements are electricity, running water, a kitchen (shared or otherwise), and less than a 30 minute commute (via bicycle and mass transit) to the university. Sadly, I do not speak Dutch. Where should I begin looking?

Any Natural Ice-Skating in Europe this Winter?

I did some Ice-Skating on the frozen lakes in The Netherlands last February and it was a lot of fun and I was hoping to do it again this winter somewhere. Maybe Sweden, or Norway or somewhere in northern Europe where good ice is more likely. (Is the Elfstedentocht - 11 Cities likely to run this year?) Where are some good (and relatively certain) Natural Ice Skating spots in the Uk, Netherlands, Scandinavia region? [more inside]
