The Netherlands is full of surprises. Its people are statistically the tallest of all nations, it’s the world’s second largest exporter of food and agriculture after the United States, and it is one of the most densely populated countries on earth.
Once the world’s foremost naval power, this tiny nation boasts a wealth of cultural heritage; famous for its painters, clogs, tulips, cheese, bicycles, windmills, dykes and notoriously flat low-lying land. The Dutch are friendly, welcoming, gregarious and brutally honest. And socialising with the Dutch is easy given that almost everyone speaks English, often, better than the English.
