who likes holland thread - im in holland on vacation?

I like holland. Im here on vacation for another 2 weeks. the people r so nice and you can ride bikes everywhere. lots of smiling faces and good chear. people tailgate a little bit on big roads but otherwise i have no complaints. integrations of people of all nationalities appears very successful here. people have been really really nice. my wife loves it and says she'd condiser retiring here. i also like it a lot. we r staying in a house with a garden and several bedrooms and large lving room and we have a lot of space. the kids love the kitten and its mother we r caring for./ my son fell in the fishpond yesterday
the ocean is great, im taking a surfing lesson tomorrow. things are not too expensive either and the shopping is great. 24 Amstels costs only abt 7,50 euros. sun is shining now after a few days of yucky weather. there r parks for kids all over... oh and i never saw so many blond kids, i never new how many blond people there were in holland. mostly the people are really so so nice and friendly and they all speak good english
Go HOLLAND!

Re: who likes holland thread - im in holland on vacation?

We loved Holland, too! In my youth I worked there briefly (internships) in Enschede. I lived in Borne but I only really went back to sleep there, and hung out at U. Twente in Enschede. Amsterdam was great! Easy living, easygoing people, mind their own business, friendly, fair.
The weather does suck though.

Have a great holiday. Have apelgebak met slagroom for me!

Glad you're having a great time here Personally I think this country is overrated .

Where in Holland are you staying? Enjoy the rest of your stay!
