Clemens and Mia, living in the canal area in Amsterdam Holland.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are retired for 4 years: we like hiking, we like golfing, we like to travel, and meeting people.
We travelled the United States for 9 Monts with our own camper, December 2015 till September 2016.
In April 2019 we will arrive in Halifax to travel for a half year trough Canada in the direction of Vancouver.
From Vancouver we planned a trip by boat to Alaska and from there back to Canada along the Alaska Highway.
Back to the east coast we like visit the Great Lakes district and we hope to enjoy Indian summer in Maine.
We are interested in history and architecture, we like to visit museums and we love nature.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

During our trip in 2016, we were member of Escapees, Boondockers welcome, harvest host, and RV Golfclub
We bought all the excellent e-books of Marianne Edwards (frugal-RV-travel.com) so we learned ‘ Boondocking ‘.
We have found many nice and beautiful places and now we know how to find good spots.

La Strada's Hometown

Amsterdam (Holland) in the beautiful canal area.

International Delight!

What an incredibly pleasant couple of days I had hosting these guests! We had such interesting conversations, and were able to spend some time chatting over morning coffees. A trip to some of my favorite attractions, (including bacon-topped ice cream sundaes), made for a delightful and relaxing day. I felt a bit of sadness saying goodbye to them; such kind, considerate, and respectful visitors who I would love to have back anytime!

Very enjoyable guests!

We very much enjoyed hosting LA Strada. Sadly, he wasn't feeling the best, so we didn't get to spend as much time visiting with him as we would have liked. She was delightful to chat with. And they are both welcome back any time!

World travellers

La Strada were an engaging Dutch couple with interesting experiences of travel with their compact European RV. Required no services and enjoyed the peace and quiet we think! Another very knowledgeable travelling couple we enjoyed hosting.
Safe travels

Our first European travellers!

Wonderful to meet these completely self sufficient folks and learn how they brought their motor home from the Netherlands to Canada. I love that they take their time and really see this country and they see value in meeting new people. Wish them the best in their travels.

A Friendly Couple

We were able to share our travel stories during the short time they were here. They have ambitious plans and will get to experience just how vast Canada is.

Enjoyable guests

After being a guest ourselves for many times, La Strada was a great first couple to greet as a boondockers welcome host.
Had interesting talks about their travel experiences and they shared good information we can use on future trips. We wish them all the best on their big Canada trip and they are always welcome back at our home

Pleasure to Host

It was a pleasure to host La Strada. I enjoyed chatting with them and hearing about their travels and life in Amsterdam. They rig was very awesome and fit in our small drive easily. Best of luck on your future travels.

Delightful Guests

We thoroughly enjoyed hosting our guests from The Netherlands. They were very self sufficient, but we took advantage of the beautiful (and fairly rare) summer weather to sit on our patio and share travel adventures and other interesting conversation. They gave us at least as many travel tips and information on interesting places to go as we were able to give them. We wish them well as they wind down their 9 month tour of the US, and hope if they request to stay with you, you'll be available to host them.

Wonderful visitors!

Clemens and Mia were a joy to host, very good company and self-sufficient, with a small but elegant rig quite different from anything we've seen from any North American manufacturer. Make sure they give you a tour!

Wooden Shoe enjoy hosting them?

A little Holland humor with the title. They didn't wear wooden shoes. My wife and I had been to Holland and we shared stories about a few of their tourist areas. Very nice people. We hosted them for a few days and truly enjoyed talking about RVing and identifying places they might want to visit.

Very Pleasant folks from Holland!

What a nice couple! They only stayed one night, and had to leave early, so we didn't get much time to visit, but found them delightful and very self sufficient. Would gladly welcome them back anytime.
