Dear ACCESS readers
Taking a lesson from the past can often be a key to stepping forward in the future. In reinventing something, we might sometimes need to go in reverse but invariably we go forward with something that is for the better. In this issue, we focus on the auto industry in the Netherlands and specifically innovation. Cars are ubiquitous but how often do you think about what it takes to power them other than the cost in euros? Learn about the automotive past by reading about the Louwman museum, and then step in to the future with our cover story on automotive innovation. At ACCESS, we not only help people to settle in to the Netherlands but we also help people innovate. Many volunteers have a skillset but through volunteering with ACCESS, they are challenged to learn new skills and take on roles different to those previously done. This helps to create a more sustainable international community. It’s not all about cars; a pinch of spice from the Australian and New Zealand’s Food and Community articles is added to accelerate your taste buds to heaven. Don’t miss Gouda by Candlelight and learn how to cope with homesickness with Mandie Danielski. Erin Willie informs us of tulips in Amsterdam and an ice hotel in Zwolle. We hope to help you get the most out of your time in the Netherlands, start now by reading ACCESS’s Winter edition. In closing, we would like to thank Connie Moser for her contribution to the ACCESS e-zine as Editor and wish her all the best for the future.
Festive greetings to all! Sally Squirrell E-zine Editor ACCESS email@example.com
