    I must congratulate you on your splendid English, and even though I am not a backpacker, but having been to New Zealand a number of times and having lived in Australia for several decades, I must confess that I agree wholeheartedly with your comments about OZ and NZ.
    Incidentally, my mouth started watering when you mentioned rijstevlaai. My grandmother (who lived in the Industriestraat in Reuver) used to spoil me with that Limburg delicacy. Fortunately, appelstroop made in Beesel, where my mother was born, can be bought in Sydney.
    Many thanks for your most entertaining and enjoyable article.
