      Chloe wilson I visited Florida earlier this year and at one point we had bought a bottle of 'spring water' that tasted and smelled like petroleum. It was so weird.

    somebody should have told you you can drink the tap water.
    that's the easiest way to spot a tourist in the netherlands, when they carry a 6pack of water bottles XD

    I live in the Netherlands and I really like your video! But I just wanted to say that I never have to pay to use the bathroom. So maybe you just went to the wrong places?

    • Anouk Vries
      Anouk Vries 27 days ago

      Oooh I think you’re talking about public restrooms. But you can always walk into a restaurant and ask if you could use the bathroom. (Or don’t ask and just do it). That way you won’t have to pay ;) (and no that’s not considered rude in the Netherlands, a lot of people do it!)

    I was freaked out by the public restroom situation. I was outside of the Amsterdam Arena waiting for the Ajax match to start and I saw public urinals and this dude was just doing his business while families walked by. I had to go and just thought, fuck it! When in Rome!!! Lol

    Our government is (just) smart enough to keep us “happy” but they are also screwing us in slow motion just like most governments do. Especially since the Euro they stole half of our purchasing power in 16 years.
    And the french fries and mayo are not really good food...😂

    Funny thing is, all Dutch talking about the water. One thing they all miss: you didn't eat pickelt hering(zure haring) this would be sour and is not eaten with the raw onions. The one you ate is the salty hering. Just a detail...
    Nice to see your enthousiasm (hope thats even english) about our country.

  • TheMagnificentZoltar

    In The Netherlands, taxes are a lot higher, but social security is also on a higher standard. E.g. going to the hospital is more affordable but filling your tank at the gas station would probably freak you out.

    Last night, I went to bed feeling terrible after reading five articles about corruption in the U.S. while trying to tolerate my horrible neighbor who is bent on making me miserable in spite of me trying my best to talk things out with him and be friends. I lay in bed dreaming up a letter I would write to the Dutch government begging them to let me move there permanently. I'm reaching the point of being ready to renounce my American citizenship.

    we are perceived to be greedy also good sales men there is a saying which is more like a joke (he would sell his own mother in law) i think some of us actual would if it was legal XD we tend to say what we think if you think we are telling you something straight ahead without sugarcoating it trust me we are already doing our best to sugarcoat it, also we love our beer and there is the Heineken camp who loves Heineken and usually would say thats the best and there is the anti Heineken camp who basically say Heineken is dish water and prefer hertogjan or bavaria or anything else instead

    Thank you for the compliments! Glad you liked it here :) I was kinda shocked when you said that in Las Vegas, people would probably laugh when someone fell of a bike. The person could need help, could have hurt themselves. It's only natural to help people when they fall. Yeah we have so many bikes here XD More that the amount f people actually XD
    And you are totally right, paying to go to the bathroom is what I too don't like. I mean, it is mostly too expensive. I know that they ask money because the public bathrooms are some peoples' work. They clean it for the public and I do find it only fair that they get some money for it in return, but it's gotten much more expensive. First it was like 25 or 50 cents, now 70 cents or even 1 euro..

    Dont believe the naive storries of how the netherlands is..these are all experiences from people who dont really understand the bad sides of our country...people are not helpfull at all. Like everywhere you have good people and shitty people. Most people are to affraid if something bad is happening to you, they walk away and dont act. They are cowards...sorry but its true. Dutch people are also fuckimg naive..

    Don't swallow the haring in one.. you choke.. we too take bites.. the kroket is filled with ragout.. different fillings like cheese, swrimp, viele... the Bitterbal is a smaller version as more like a snack/ one bite thing. The cheese stores in amsterdam are tourist shops, we buy our cheese at the supermarket, a lot cheaper.. or of you are near one, the factory itself..

    Hey! I'm from the Netherlands and I'm glad to hear you like it there. I have an amazing food related tip for you: de Zeeuwse bolus! It is a kind of pastry from the part of the Netherlands I am originally from; Zeeland. You will not be disappointed haha
    And about paying for the bathroom: I hate that too. They only ask for money if you're not a customer at that specific place. For instance when you're just walking into a bar just for a toilet visit.
    Also: The Netherlands has like the best tapwater in the world. It is delicious and perfectly safe to drink.

    I moved here like 10 years ago. I had a COMPLETELY different experience you had. Maybe because I'm not white. I'm from Texas and when i came here i found most people to be rude and arrogant. I hated the customer service. I disliked people telling me i had to learn dutch (i didnt mind until everyone was forcing it on me) even the colored dutchies. I do feel a lot has changed here in 10 years though. Well i still miss the southern hospitality. And The Hague was not as diverse as it is now as it was when i moved here. It really had mostly dutch, surinam, Indonesian and chinese people. I only knew like 2 or 3 americans when i went to the university here. But now i see people everywhere.

    I can see how a lot of Dutch people would gravitate towards you, because you are being honest without throwing shade ( one of the 'must have' Dutch traits) and you are so exited about our culture without being over the edge.
    Thank you for this amazing video!
