Benefits of Life in the Netherlands

Just a few things I have come to love after living with my Aunt and cousin for two days in Naarden / Bussum: 
  • 10am Coffee or tea with biscuits, cheese, etc 
  • 4pm Coffee or tea with biscuits, cheese, etc 
  • 5pm Pre-dinner wine with biscuits, cheese, etc 
  • Post-dinner coffee or tea
  • Evening nightcap with option for biscuits, cheese, etc
  • Bicycles are a primary mode of travel, and bike lanes are incorporated into the transportation infrastructure everywhere
  • The beds are long enough 
  • A pervasive sense of historicity
