    A recent survey asked 5,000 middle income Europeans the following question. "If you could move to the United States and be guaranteed a good job for life, would you go?" Over 85% said NO! Tells you something, doesn't it?

    It's so funny to hear the differences between US and The Netherlands! What I really miss when were in the US is that you cannot jump on your bike, and go to the grocery store.. everything takes a lot of time in the US. But the space.. I love it! Big cars, big highways.. really cool 😉 and I think that Americans are really nice and interesting people!

    Nice vid, quite accurate. We do tips however, but it's not mandatory, it's more like a custome, mostly between 8-12% of the bill. We just don't add it on the bill itself, so it's more just to add it yourself as a guest.

    Well, we do tip ofcourse, mostly between 8-12% of the price of the served dinner, it is however not a mandatory or included in the bill itself, you can decide for yourself

  • Marcel Rombouts
    Marcel Rombouts 2 years ago +20

    As others have said below, the tipping really isn't an attitude thing. In a way the tip is implicitly included in the bill already. As a waiter in the USA you get a different deal financially, leading to a reliance on tips that simpy doesn't exist in the Netherlands.

  • Dynamike
    Dynamike 2 years ago +3

    Wij geven wel fooi, maar hoeveel is aan ons zelf! We do give tips, but unlike in Amerika it's of free choice. I remember being in New York for the first time. I gave a tip on top of the 10% they had already taken themselves! XD That was weird for me! I mean, here you can deny them a tip if the food or service sucked.

    i've lived both in Canada ( Toronto ontario) and the Netherlands. In the Netherlands the prices of grocery shopping are much cheaper then in Canada and i think also cheaper the in the USA ... 2Liters milk NL = 0.98 euro canada= 4.50 CAD,.... and how much in USA (1/2 gallon) ..... in 2010 Dr oetker frozen pizza in NL 1.53 ( now 2.39) euro Canada = 6.50 CAD and USA ?? and not to mention the in NL the tax is included and north america is not ( BTW, PST/GST VAT)

    Being a born Dutchman, living most of my life in the USA, I think you got a lot of it right on....take the 'space' thing a little closer, as Dutch are forced at times to make crowd contact, if with clothes at least, so now, as an American most of my life, I feel claustrophobic in Holland.

    Nowhere do they serve portion sizes like in the US. That's why we have "doggie bags" to take food home. The restaurants get better discounts if they buy more and so they push more food out.

      +Steven Goossens (stiro536) We tip if the service and food is good (not in fastfood). A normal tip in the Netherlands is then 10% of the bill.
      A difference with America is that waiters in the Netherlands have a minimum wage and are not depending of their tips. In my opion a better system, because u get then better service and the waiters are sure they have a descent income ;)

    I would love to live in the Netherlands I eat at home in the USA, so I would do the same most of the time in the Netherlands. Also, I bike to work and the grocery store, with my 21 month old kid as well. When I visited it felt like home in Amsterdam. I need to visit more areas. Particularly the best areas for living car free and cycling. One day we can rent our house out and move there.

It's not that busy, and no one bikes on the tracks. Also some cities in the North are Leeuwarden, Zwolle, Groningen. You also get some cool landscapes in the North, not big mountains but just farmland with big farms, frisian cows, mills and water :)

      +Pjof S Er valt een hoop op te merken over de NS, maar ik heb een keer vast gezeten in een Italiaanse trein.
      We stonden urenlang stil in the middle of nowhere, er werd ons niets gezegd, en op een gegeven moment vielen de airco en alle lichten uit (het was a snikhete dag). Omdat ze door hadden dat we bezig waren gaar te koken hebben ze de trein na een tijdje in een tunnel laten rollen. Nou ja, schaduw is leuk en zo, maar het was daar ook gitzwart, want tja, nog steeds geen lichten. Lekker claustrofobisch, en ondertussen begonnen mensen ook nog eens knap honger te krijgen.
      En laten we het maar niet hebben over de wachtrij voor de wc.
      Op een gegeven moment hebben ze ons overgeladen naar een andere trein (we wisten nog steeds niet wat er aan de hand was), en uiteindelijk werden we dan toch in Rome afgezet. En geld terug krijgen, ho maar!
      Dus ja. Ik sta ook niet graag een een veel te kort, veel te vol NS-treintje tijdens de spits, maar ik heb gezien dat het nog véél erger kan!

      Schijnbaar vind u het nodig om gelijk een oordeel te vellen en een "vingertje" op te steken en iemand een sticker op te plakken. Gelukkig ben ik niet zo'n iemand als u voor ogen heeft. Ook ik ben iemand die gewoon een "tip" geeft en meestal niet zo'n zuinige ook. Ik heb alleen maar willen aangeven dat, in tegen stelling tot bv USA, "tip" verdisconteerd zit in het Nederlandse salaris van horecapersoneel. Ik weet uit ervaring dat Nederlands horecapersoneel het zeer op prijs stelt als hu effort gewaardeerd word, maar ook dat zij niet zo reageren als Amerikaans horecapersoneel doet als men geen "tip" ontvangt. Ik hoop dat u in de toekomst dus niet gelijk iemand kwalificeert als gierig als u niet eens op de hoogte bent wat voor een persoon u voor u heeft.

    I met a group of Americans here in Leiden a few weeks ago. And they loved the fact there were so many cyclists here. A friend of one them mentioned that Holland has the best asses because we Dutch love to cycle so much. :))

    As an American. The reason I've gathered for our "huge" food is that we want the meal to suffice for at least 8 hours.
    The thing is, not many American's (especially American women)eat everything we're given upfront. We keep the rest as leftovers.
    And it's no secret that we LOVE leftovers.

    Space yea offcourse its the biggest diffrence but elso food the Dutch are kind a soft when it comes to kitchen not ment to be rude but we make everything out of a package with instruction at the back see maggi or Knorr. you don´t have that in the states either they just cook things. And a cool thing in Holland brick houses we got enough clay in the states its way to expensive for most houses.

    I like the idea of bikes but do they ride them in the winter and if they do how do they stand riding a bike in the cold?

      We're doing ok because of having natural gas as a resource and almost all houses are hooked up to that resource and using it for cooking and heating. It's quite doable.

      +AwoudeX It sounds like it's damp there. Do most of you have good Heating and is it hard to pay for (Expensive)?

    I really like this video! It must be so weird to move from the US to the Netherlands! I lived in the US for a semester (made a video about it, if you want to check it out, it's on my channel) but I really enjoyed it there so much. I feel like it must be more confusing for Americans to move to the Netherlands than the other way around.
