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 ed­i­tor@ac­
