Yup, I've seen both of these videos before. I've spent quite a bit of time on YT. Thanks so much!

By the way, what are you doing up?????? Or, are you an early riser?

To hot to sleep lol

Oh, and I seriously doubt you're still up because it's too hot! I felt a burst of energy when you posted. I'm guessing you're one of those that doesn't need much sleep! Right, aren't I?????????????? Heh!!!!!!!

No, all "Netherlanders" are Dutch. But not all Netherlanders are Hollanders. Holland is two provinces.

We don't call all Canadians "Ontarians", do we?

So Netherlanders and Dutch are synonymous, but Holland and Netherlands aren't

it's pretty obvious that Dutchies have SOMETHING TO HIDE!!! Otherwise why would they need THREE DIFFERENT NAMES for their people and country!?!!?!!!??!?!?

Why would the small sample of your personal experience produce a more reliable result than the census?
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD

good point. but i don't believe in census results.

people highly underestimate the religious influences in the netherlands.
 Quoting: Belgian Coward 15782258

That's a thing of the past.
Frex, 50 years ago the confessional parties would win over 50% of the national vote, the last time around it was less than 17%.
(Latest poll 14.4%)

again a good point; but i find statistics to be useless.

take a practical point view: on sunday, most of the many many churches in the netherlands are filled with people. on sunday in belgium, most of the many many churches are almost empty.

since you like numbers: provide some statistics on the number of active pastors/priests per capita.

Better leave soon. In the healthcare bill was something about gov taking 30% of all money wired out of the country. This is not for any tax owed. This is your penalty for leaving the country. Pretty sure it goes into effect end of this year. Jan 1st at the latest.......

Re: Moving to The Netherlands, Tell Me What to Expect!
From what I understand the Chatholic churches are empty in southern Neth. and I also assume I Bel. I'm second generation Canadian being half Flemish and Dutch descent and also catholic. My wife's parents are also Dutch and catholic. My wife has been to Neth. several times to the Tilburg, Breda area near the Belgian border. She can confirm that the Catholic churches are empty, only the older people still go. I talk to alot of people everyday that still visit southern Neth. and east and west Flanders and they love going there. The catholic boers or farmers in these areas are some of the best partiers in the area and love their beer. The northern Dutch above the Maas river are predominantly protestant(Dutch Reform) and are more refined and reservered and cling more to their religion. Here in Ontario the situation is the same.

If you're looking for cheaper apartments in the Netherlands, your best bet is to look OUTSIDE the Randstaad. If you don't know what "Randstaad" is, look it up.

Then again, places outside the Randstaad also tend to be rural too, so be prepared for less stuff happening. And less jobs on offer too.

Yeah, crime in Nederland is somewhat different. I remember a coworker telling me that if you murder someone, you might be able to get off without jail time but if you cheat on your taxes, expect the death penalty.

I noticed a lot of Muslims there.

"Data from 2009 show that the Netherlands hosts an estimated 825,000 Muslims. Most of them live in the four major cities of the country, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht."

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21406652


Oh yes, take a train ride from anywhere to anywhere in the Randstaad and count the number of minarets you see while in transit.

But that's not just an issue in Nederland - UK has that problem now, and it's spreading throughout all of europe. France has banned headscarves, etc. Europe is not what it used to be, part of the reason I left and came back.

Well, what to expect when you move to Holland?

Let me tell you as an expert on Holland.
(I was born in The Netherlands)
First, when you land at Schiphol Airport and you move from the naked scanner to Amsterdam City Center please keep your hand on your wallet all the time.(Before you know it, it is gone).
And don't be afraid when you drive through the country to see many hundreds of mosques along the way. These mosques all form a network so once the muslems have taken over here you will be beheaded when you do not convert to their pagan religion. So be prepared to loose your head in the long run.

Further, expect a lot of burocracy and a bunch of people, especially the Dutch Government, who are all after your money.

Welcome to Holland!

Wish more Americans were coming here!

Yes, we do have immigrants here which don't integrate as we wish, fact is that the Netherlands is an awesome country to live in with lots of good opportunities for honest, wellwilling, hardworking people.

In my opinion people are always looking to and blaming the government for their problems but Forget They have their own responsibility too. Stop spreading this BS about " Mosques" and stuff, simply not true.

If any of you Americans ever decide trying to live the American Dream for real, try to do that overhere :-)

I am even willing to help possible US immigrants coming here :-)

Thank you. I think I've just found out the part of The Netherlands I'd like to try.
 Quoting: aNONaMITTy

personally, i love the southerns parts of the netherlands (province Noord-Brabant and Limburg). they are, for me, the ideal mixture between the dutch and the flemish people. there is also a lot more nature, compared to most other provinces in the netherlands.

on both sides of the border in these provinces, you will always have a mixture of both cultures. the actual 'border' is just a sign saying "welcome to holland/belgium" anyway, tollbooths and border police stations have gone since a decade.

if you like to live in a smaller town with plenty of cultural accomodations, and easy public transport to the rest of the netherlands and belgium, try Tilburg.
