This newsletter once again contains many interesting events for you to visit. Many of these are outdoors, and with good reason: the weather is improving, and summer is on the way! Of course, we also have interesting information for the international population in the Netherlands, including an article about what to keep in mind when traveling with your children. Food for thought!
Enjoy the read!
