I've been researching The Netherlands and Dutch culture on and off for a little over a year now, and I quite like the liberalism and egalitarianism that drives their society. I cannot say for certain if I truly understand it or will actually enjoy it until I've been there for a while, but I can say that American culture is sort of grinding my down and has been for a long time. So, I'm going to try something new.
Worst case scenario, I come away with a new international perspective and fluency in another language. Oh, and a heightened tolerance for cold; I'll definitely have some adapting to do there x) . Best case scenario, I fall in love with it and adopt it as my new home if they will have me.
