"The earliest known human life to inhabit the area now known as the Netherlands did so some 40,000 years ago. At the time, the people were hunter-gatherers and roamed across the country for wild game. The first settlements didn’t begin to appear until around 4800 B.C."

What to Pack: "Even in the summer, Dutch weather can be cool and damp. Stay warm by packing items that can be easily layered, like sweaters and cardigans. A pair of thick tights will keep women cozy any time of the year; anything that you can toss in a bag and put on for extra warmth when the temperatures dip is ideal."
