I’ve seen so many beautiful and really cool promotional destination clips. Why did Holland make such an uncool clip?
NBTC (Nederlands Bureau voor Toerisme & Congressen) receives government funding from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and cooperates intensively with relevant parties within and outside the hospitality sector.
That means that we, Dutch tax payers have funded this movie. It doesn’t look cheap, but I guess my biggest issue is that the guy talks too much… when I think of it, yes, that could be very Dutch (If you think away his unDutch accent).
Does anyone disagree? Who finds this clip cool?
Here’s what I find cool; Slovenia, Diversity to discover.

My favourite researcher is urgently looking for a few more Dutch ladies between 26 & 31 years old, who studied “HBO” or higher.
You’ll perform some computertasks for about 2 hours, in Amsterdam (before the end of next week!). Je moet Nederlandse zijn. The research is for the Brain and Cognition department of the University of Amsterdam. You will earn € 20,- in cash.
Do you fit the criteria? Please help out my friend, contact me and I’ll send you the info & bring you in touch.

European Wine Wars: after Tocai, it is the time of Prosek… and Teran.
I prefer Prosek above Prosecco and Slovenian Teran above Croatian. BUT Any of the above are better price- & quality- wise compared to anything for sale in The Netherlands.
Terrano wine is primarily grown in Kras plateau within the Slovenian Primorska wine region (where it is called Kraški teran) and Italian Carso DOC (with two main varieties called Terrano del Carso and Carso Rosso (red Carso)), as well as in the West Istrian wine region of Croatia (called Istarski Teran or Terrano D’Istria in Italian). Teran is the principal red wine grape in these regions.
This wine is a great appetizer and has always been appreciated for its medicinal properties. As with all other refosco family wines, some believe that Kraski Teran is the Roman puccinum (although some also believe that puccinum was a white wine similar to Prosecco). Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder wrote that puccinum was the favorite of Augustus‘s wife Livia who lived to the respectable age of 82. The medicinal properties of lactic acid and bivalent iron, that are highly contained in Kraski Teran, have been confirmed by a modern medicine. The wine stimulates the appetite and facilitates digestion of fatty foods
