The Netherlands guide

Latest articles

Amsterdam is one of the top cities for students, and it’s easy to see why: good universities, an international city where English is widely spoken, big enough to be fun but small enough to explore by bike, meaning that so you won’t need a car, which is good if you’re spending all of your money on textbooks and student fees. It truly is a city where there is something for everybody, and students especially benefit from the numerous free or low-cost activities and prices that can be found there.

The city of Amsterdam is more than just canals and Rembrandt. Whether you love the beauty of the ballet or prefer a more hard-rock vibe, there is something for everybody in and around this lovely city.

Dutch culture is very much about having and doing things in the right order, in the right place.

Today, Maya, an LA girl, is living with her husband in Singapore and expecting her first child. But Maya has not always had a companion on her Expat adventures. Indeed, a few years ago, right after college, young Maya left the US to teach in the Philippines, satisfying an urge to live abroad she’s always had. In an interview to ...
