Nowhere! I’m so used to going to Starbucks, notably, while traveling, or Costa Coffee.
I have not found a single Starbucks yet in the Netherlands where I can charge a phone.
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
Been looking for options all over.
Schiphol Airport has removed almost all sockets, likely because of the hacking risk they can present. I mentioned that a few weeks ago.
There are supposed to be business desks at Schiphol where you can charge laptops etc but the one location that I was able to find is closed on Saturdays and Sundays and the other airport business desk locations are not recognized when I search for them in the Schiphol airport app.
Dutch public libraries don’t offer charging options either, so I understand.
Some of the trains do.
Portsmouth, by contrast, has charging stations on the sidewalks. I think they’re by BT (British Telecom).
And duct tape aka duck tape? I suppose DIY stores have it? They are usually at remote locations. Supermarkets? Nope.
And I miss Argos! (The Dutch version of Argos – Kijkshop – failed after needing to file for bankruptcy twice. Bad management was to blame in my view, if I compare it against Argos. Argos, however, has been struggling to, I seem to remember having read fairly recently.)
I guess Dutch folks buy almost everything online these days? From bol.com?
Can’t find any phone shops either.
But guess what… I did drive past a Buffet Crampon shop yesterday… Always handy.
Yes, I am missing the many conveniences of England. Who’d have thought! 🤔
(Mommee! Help!) 😲😂
Ironic, isn’t it…
(no)(because the story is much more complicated than I could ever explain in a mere few words) (I was quite literally being suffocated to death in Portsmouth. I had to get out, even if that had to be at a high price.
