What do you think of living in the Netherlands?
When I moved to the Netherlands it meant leaving my parent’s home, and I was worried that living alone might be difficult. But that couldn’t be further from the truth: it’s all gone very smoothly! As soon as I arrived in Leiden I found everyone here really friendly. I love just walking around the city, although I have to say dodging the bikes is still a challenge!
