I'll have an opportunity to revisit the Netherlands during December - January.
Two positives for having a car:
1. Saving on the taxi transport after hours [e.g., when visiting the Showboat].
2. Visiting places other than in Amsterdam [specifically, I am considering driving to Kasteel Waterloo and even further to the DUS area for PT Dorsten and PT Mattman].
I live in California, not sure how difficult it is to drive in EU in the winter [It's about 120 miles to Waterloo, another 40 to DUS].
