Currently nearing the end of my Dutch driving lessons and having passed the theory exam in Dutch and enriched my vocabulary with ‘feery’ expensive words, I noticed that many driving schools have weird names. This one is called Snelway, a lovely collision of ‘snelweg’ (highway or motorway, although the Dutch will usually say the American ‘highway’ first – in parts of Canada they even say ‘autoroute’ in English) and, well, ‘way’. There’s also this interesting driving school and their wonderful website. Oh, and something I found out by driving in downtown, bike-ridden, tram-filled, canal bridge-laden Amsterdam: “In Holland there are many unclear and confusing traffic situations”. They are absolutely right about that part.
