Dutch people and the Netherlands! What crosses your mind first?

So I am Dutch, living in the Netherlands (the country is also known as ''Holland'') near our capitle Amsterdam. Our neighbouring countries are Germany and Belgium!

What do you think about first when I say Netherlands & Dutch people?

  • I'm Dutch too!
    My parents have been a host family for a international dance festival, where dance groups from several countries come to perform for a whole week. One of the groups once told us they were surprised that our land was so much cleaner than other countries! That was the thing they immediately thought as soon as they landed on the airport.
    Oh.. and they thought the mailboxes were not for mail, but for garbage. :p

  • I think of weed, the red light district and the funny accent (which I love by the way). I have a lot of love for the Dutch people and hope to visit again soon.

  • My first reaction is very positive. The mental images I have of the Dutch and Holland are probably somewhat storybook in nature but positive. I would definitely like to visit there.

    • Video Kids was an Italo Disco group, and they were most popular with their "Woodpeckers From Space" song. that was a hit in many European countries during 1985. Perhaps you have heard it somewhere.

    • @Klaatu51 just checked it out and bookmarked it. i do vaguely remember it. sounds like maybe there was a touch of dutch invasion in the 80's, along with the brits?

      and i also remember radar love (1974). i could tell there was something interesting going on there, but of course at that time the us didn't have a clue who golden earring was.

  • Producer of some of the best kickboxers

  • I lived in Holland until I was 12 and now live in Spain. I was from a small posh village and most people there were not very nice, quite cold and closed minded and I was constantly bullied over absolutely nothing.

    However I have to say most people from Amsterdam are a lot nicer and friendler but in general I have had quite negative experiences with other Dutch people and frankly have no Dutch friends only Spanish friends. I also prefer Spanish girls over Dutch ones.
