The actual shipping took a week and a half, then her majesty's customs and excise took their sweet, sweet time letting it into the country. What are the Dutch authorities like on customs?
Thanks for sharing this important consideration. Also, to those waiting on packages, please keep an eye/ear out for notifications from customs and/or delivery services. Sometimes a notice is issued that fees are due and, if not responded to, we get packages back with notices on them that say "package unclaimed."
