      +Pascal That sounds so impressive indeed. I would love to go there one day. Saw this video about the ppl in Denmark and the Netherlands. Ppl were cycling and walking everywhere. The only time people walk here is to McDee's or Burgerking.
      Have a good one. Thank you.

      +Chloe wilson and i do! I live in the southern part of the netherlands called brabant. We have a big underground natural water reserve, groundwater as we call it. Deep in the ground. And our waterplants also filter alot. Besides, we are the water country :) when a massive rain falls or the rivers are starting to flood, we just let the water run free in the direction we want and make a controled flood. Like in Den Bosch. Normally its wide open fields outside of the city, but when the rain pours down and the rivers give way, parts of the outside of Den Bosch are flooded. We call those area's polders. And a normal grazing meadow for lifestock becomes a man made "lake". And also citys and villages are constructed in a way that massive rain can actually go into the ground. In a "concrete jungle" water cant go anywhere. Here we have lots of green parts everywhere. I live in a city, 4th floor. I look outside and i count atleast a 100 tree's just looking out one window :) And funny enough, if i look outside my kitchen window i see what we call a sluis. A gateway for boats of all sorts so they can elevate themselfs to our city's level. Basicly a boat elevator hahahaha, wich connects to a canal running threw our city to deliver goods into the city, pretty cool actually. Hell we created our own land called Flevoland and therefor adding an additional 5% to our country's surface. We embrace water, the most abundant and destructive force full of life on this planet :D

    1 euro to pee in a toilet that you can literally eat out of because is so clean it's worth it. And why do everyone think we are "so nice"? It's makes me wonder in what type of world they live to think helping someone that fell out of a bike is "nice". It's not, we call that "being normal".

    About the french fries. There's a reason we have a lot of those here. They were invented by the dutch, in Flanders. Which Nowadays belongs to Belgium. But at that time Belgium wasn't a seperate country yet.
    You don't eat pickled herring like that. You just take one bite at a time and chew it before you swallow it.
    Just go to your hotel, find a McDonald's or any restaurant for that matter, usually the toilet is free there. The only places you've got to pay for using the toilet is at train stations or at the public toilets in the bigger cities.
    Also, you can just drink tap water here. It really is clean.
    Don't take this the wrong way. Love your video. Awesome that you tried all those things.
    Btw, did you try to cycle here in the Netherlands?

    Fun fact, the name Yankee's comes from the dutch name Jan Kees, which was a very common name in New Amsterdam the dutch settlement now known as New York. And dont forget we the Netherlands are the biggest worldwide logistic hub for drugs and kiddie porn.

Worst thing is they say it's for cleaning, but most of the times the toilets are nasty af xD But yeah, if you search around a bit most of the time you can find a free one

    The Netherlands have the clearest water in the world, so you can drink out of your sink. But great video! (I think it is very funny to watch, because i am dutch) and yeah at school we learn A lot of English and it is de most important school subject. If you want to ASK something About the Netherlands (it doesn’t matter What it is) you can do that 😄 (Ps: I live in the north of the Netherlands that is called Friesland and we speak here dutch and Fries and Fries is the most similor langue to English)

    A lot of people when they go to The Netherlands, they just go to Amsterdam. If you visit again I recommend taking the train and travel through the country. It’s really easy to travel to the main city’s, for example Maastricht is very underrated! I live there and it has a very rich culture, they also have caves that you can get a tour through (they are ginormous) Also den Haag is very nice and Rotterdam too!
    I think you already heard but you can drink tap water here, like everywhere it’s very normal. Also you have to ask for the check, they don’t just give it to you. I heard that was very odd to people from other countries.

      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!)

    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.

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.

    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..
