The Netherlands is often called Holland. Strictly speaking there are two provinces with “Holland” in the name which make up Holland.

One province has Amsterdam in it, the other Rotterdam.

What are the two provinces?

Yup, Nord en Zuid Holland to say it in Dutch. I was born in South Holland and got the lecture about what Holland meant in primary school.

Well, my parents decided to migrate—I think Dad was afraid the Russians would invade W Europe and he would be hauled off again on forced labor. Nine year old me had no say in this, of course. So I turned 18 and naturalised, my parents did so a bit later.

I can speak Dutch—but the limited vocabulary of a 9-10yo. Mum and Dad decided to speak English at home to help me and my two sisters.
