From riding bikes to using public transport, I love the culture in The Netherlands. I find that it has a unique sophistication that’s hard to match. Find yourself a lovely cafe, order a beer and watch the world go round, it makes for a wonderful place to people watch. Parents riding bikes with two and three kids in tow still makes me smile after 16 years of living here.

While I’ve been incredibly lucky and have acquired a lot of Dutch friends, I will say the people of The Netherlands are exceptionally polite and friendly. Generally speaking, their business sense, kindness, intelligence, and overall lifestyle is something to be admired, and because most people in The Netherlands speak English, it’s really easy to connect with them.
