How's the weather in mid October, rain everyday for day to night?Will go to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Kinderdijk, Hague, Giethoorn at early October. How's the weather usually be like at October? I googled and it said precipitation is high. I lived in London and Vancouver before, will the weather be similar comparing to them like drizzle or moderate rain everyday from day to night, or it's like a shower and after shower it turns sunny?

4"Golden October"? Never heard of that, I also don't think there is an expression for it in Dutch, which probably says it all ;-)
Come prepared for a combination of drizzle, showers and fog; that way you can only be pleasantly surprised if you are lucky enough to see the sun.
It doesn't hurt to check the weather forecast before setting out on trips to Kinderdijk or Giethoorn, you don't want to go there when it rains all day long. And keep in mind that while many people find it hard enough to appreciate the charms of Rotterdam on a sunny day, on a rainy day the place can make even the most cheerful person feel totally depressed.
http://www.buienradar.nl is a handy website to check the probability of ending up soaked.

7It is true that we sometimes get a couple of days/a week of very mild and sunny weather in October. There is no guarantee though if and when that could happen.
Being prepared for the worst is always best.
How comes you have no 'legs' under your username? I mean you have no avatar, just like Regards, but he has the legs and you have...... nothing ;-)

I'm not a big fan of avatars, mainly because I'm very vain yet not creative enough to think of an ingenious one (and though I do appreciate other peoples avatars, I usually keep them switched off) - the default one by LP annoyed me so I decided to 'delete' it by selecting a grey square instead, thus I have an avatar which comes across as a non-avatar. just a workaround.

10Thanks for the advice!
Yeah I know Rotterdam is boring, and the only reason I will go there is because of kinderdijk. My plan that day is going to Brugge and going to Rotterdam at night for sleep, and going to Kinderdijk next day before heading off to Hague. If it rains, any alternative options, museums or any indoor activities? Thx!

11i didn't know that was technically possible
maybe I was a little unclear: it's a pic I uploaded just like any pic. ;-)
@ alexis: thanks for the feedback & please excuse for going off-topic, but there's no longer any other way of interacting between us users than posting directly... btw, I don't deem Rotterdam boring, some very fine museums and extraordinary contemporary architcture - if you need ideas, just indicate your interests and drop a line!

13hi again alexis,
I fear maybe we've unintentionally been talking past each other: the first bit of my remark in #11 was still geared towards artemis ;-)
see here for some first ideas about what to do in Rotterdam - in case you have specific interests, please share them!
