  • I spent my 18th birthday in the Netherlands, so that's obviously what comes to mind. 😛 I was mainly in Eindhoven. There were bikes fucking everywhere.. nice people.. clean.
    Also Amsterdam, drugs and prostitutes naturally comes to mind.

  • I think of awesome people. One of my best friend growing up was from the Netherlands. Her mom was awesome and I loved her. They had a bunch of parties where they invited other Dutch immigrant friends and it was really fun. All of them were extremely nice.

  • Well... the Netherlands.. the driving is TERRIBLE, there is a LOT of bureaucracy whenever you deal with the government in ANY way..., there are only little mom and pop shops so you will lack for some of the essentials living there, customer service in everything is lacking, but the people are nice and it is quaint there. I wouldn't live there myself but it is fun for a short visit.

    • Very good! And yeah I guess our language does sound rough because it's a bit like German in some ways. Apparently very difficult to master, too.

    • Yeah, German language is really rough too, I know that for a fact since I'm learning it.

    • It has the advantage that more people speak it and it's a bit easier to learn in terms of grammar, I think. Dutch grammar has so many rules and exceptions that I honestly don't know them all.

  • Windmills, Marijuana bars and prostitutes xD
