Welcome.
I am a fairly new member to the forum, interesting place.
When I was young I lived in Den Haag. Father worked in Rotterdam, you can probably guess what he did for a living if I said it did not involve ships.
I don't use emojis, irony is better, you decide

Welcome from Devon.  Where in Holland?  I used to live just across the border from Roermond.

Hi DutchHiker, welcome to the forum. We are all stuck in most of the time too.
Where over here do you go walking?

Welcome to the forum from the southern edge of the Lake District, Dutch  :)
I'm lucky in that I have some fantastic walking country right on my doorstep, local daily exercise is still allowed here in Britain.

Hi fellow Dutchman!
I have been living in the south of England since 2007, though most of my UK walking is in Scotland. But not at the moment of course :(
