Monty, thanks very much for that! I'm really glad to hear you are trying to 
put something in that can help us with Geocaching.

I don't live in Amsterdam, nor in Breda, and didn't visit either of those 
places recently. But they are both big cities, so I'm sure somebody else 
will have put some useful points on the Pointshare Exchange.
I wish you a really great weekend in our country, and if you need any help 
with translating the Dutch point names, feel free to let me know. :)

Kind regards,
