    I appreciate the correct name for the Netherlands.
    Because 99% thinks it is Holland. But thats Provence. And the "Kingdom of Holland" doesnt exist anymore since 18th century

    No offence to any religion you're representing, but you do realise that most of the Dutch (over 50%) do not a affiliate to any religion? I mean, we used to, but we realised that religion shouldn't control your life, so more than half of the Dutch are either agnostic or atheist. Now we don't attack anyone for following a religion (like the Brittish or United States atheists) but we chose not to follow a religion, so I'm afraid that setting up a mission in the Netherlands is a waste of energy. But never the less, you're welcome here regardless.

      To some below 25 degrees celsius is cold. Fun fact, i knew some Swedes a couple of years ago, and during the spring, they dressed like it was freezing. The humidity drains your energy so much more than dry colder air that they could not get used to it.

    “Why is everyone so tall? Why is everyone so huge! I’m a midget” me every time I walk through my high school..
    I’m literally shoulder length if I look at the people in my class, and I’m not even that short! I’m 1.60m, and almost 14, but the girls in my class are a full head longer than me :^(

    Its not like we want to practice our English, its just a lot more convenient to speak English. We built this country on being efficient and conversation in English is just easier for both parties on those situations.

      Jimmy Van Til And we thought Americans were big eaters. Dutch people can finish a pannenkoek by themselves with ease.

    This is how I feel everytime I go back to the Netherlands since I live in the USA. I always miss it, but when it starts raining again, I want to go back to the US immediately :-). I also prefer the Dutch pancakes above the American pancakes ;-)! Love this video guys!

    Why are Americans so overly dramatic. Im dutch and no matter how much i love hearing people talk about how special my country is, this is really over the top. Its just another western European country with not THAT much lifechanging stuff about it.

      Actually, we are, compared to the rest of Europe, we are considered to be the odd one out, we are flat, we are tall, we ride bikes all over the place, and we have a totally relaxed and open minded culture (if you don't account for the backwards Wilders voters). To any country not from Europe, this is something refreshing, I can understand their excitement, I've seen more over the top reactions to our country, compared to those, these people seem to have taken in a bit of the Dutch ease when describing our country.
