It’s the land of bicycles, a super-cute and uber-cool place where windmills spin over flowery fields and the Dutch get their art on all over town.
If you come to the Netherlands for one thing, come for gezellig. This is a feeling of being around good company when everything’s so nice and great. You can get it in the brown cafes, you can get it after a cheery bike ride, and you can get it walking through Amsterdam’s canals, admiring the bobbing boats and adorable town houses above the water.
Warning: Be prepared for cutting edge culture and awesomely liberal lifestyles. Coming to the Netherlands is a bit like coming to the future.
