indeed. the netherlands and belgium are one of the most densely populated and unnatural landscapes you'll find. its landscaping might look more natural or organically formed, because we have been building stuff for few thousand years, just patching it all together on top of the older stuff.

in general, the netherlands and belgium are quite rural and quiet places to live though. you just can't compare it to the vast natural reserves of eg. the united states or canada.

It's been a while but yeah, that part is good...which only accounts for a small part of this country.

And I tell you what. I lived in a small town in Nowhere, USA. I mean there was nothing there. What do you think happened?

The US Army Corps of engineers came and dredged, cemented and changed the river. It looked like a damned concrete sewerline when they got done.

They said it was to keep the area from flooding but what happened is the river said, No way. It flooded a lot after that. It was a complete screw up!!!

Re: Moving to The Netherlands, Tell Me What to Expect!
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!
 Quoting: HenryHolland


What a bunch of bullshit.

Mostly this kind of Messages are written by people with miserable lives who blame others for that.

1st of all, welcome to Op :-)
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 :-)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22181273





Thank you sir. This is the kind of greeting I usually encounter from your country men. I look forward to being there as soon as I can. I would like to try to live the American Dream there...for real! How can you help me? I am definitely needing it.
 Quoting: aNONaMITTy


Can i email you?

You are very welcome :-)

True about the size of the US. But, I just updated my post to relay a story about how the Army Corps of Engineers screwed up a river that I lived near. It looked like a concrete sewerline by the time they were done. They said it was to keep it from flooding. Well guess what. It didn't work and looked like shit.

just make sure you aren't romantizing the netherlands. all these quaint little houses surrounded by pasture and farmland sure look nice and cosy, but guess what: they're all occupied. finding a nice spot to actually live can be difficult and especially expensive. the majority of the population lives in districts of appartment buildings, around the large cities...

Also. Watch this video. You must formulate a strong passionate opinion either for or against this song. It's doesn't really matter if you hate it to death or love it to pieces but you must MUST do one or the other. It is verboden to just say, I don't get it.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14118518

I met him when I was working for a Dutch tv-show, weeks before he got 'famous' with this song.

The guy was sooooo nice, I thought he was taking the piss outta me.

But he's really like that - a very friendly, almost humble person.

I can't stand his music though...
 Quoting: RoXY


He seems like a nice guy, I agree. And honestly, I listen to that song and I neither want to scream or dance. The only real thing I can say about it, is that I still don't get it. I mean, I still can catch every 3rd or 4th word and I think it's more or less a love song to a girlfriend.

National anthem - LOL. You had better keep that to yourself when you are over there, that might start a fight in a bar, depending on how drunk someone is.

It's possible to find that in the Netherlands, but you're sorta going against the current here. Nederland is primarily an URBAN place. If you like the bustle of the city, you'll fit in just fine. That part of living there, I personally liked. All those minarets disturbed me though.

I think you need to be more clear about why you want to move to Nederland. There are less crowded places in europe than there, as I'm sure I can get a second or third from some Dutch people on this.

You might try Poland for example or some other places in E. Europe. Czech Republic for instance. Also everything is cheaper too.

I have mentioned in this thread why I'm going to The Netherlands. But briefly, I have a spiritual teacher there and my astrology chart shows it's a very good place for me, personally.
