yeah, I´m currently living in Holland. Since I work for a spanish company (I´m spanish), I´m surronded by spanish people and it is being easier for me but with the dutch is different, they have their own lifes and privacy (which I totally do respect) but they aren´t opened to invite you to join their plans... I feel like I live in Holland but I´m still in Spain... The thing that surprised me most when I came here was that I expected it to be like in Germany (I was living in Germany before) everybody was really open there and felt totally integrated... I don´t know wheter it is a matter of luck or whatever but that´s the way I find it overhere.
I do totally agree with u guys... It´s the third time I live abroad and the first time in Holland and this experience seems to be harder than the others at the time to meet new people... They are very very kind at the office but there is a barrier... It´s like Alice19 has said before, you try to be kind, polite and always smilling but there is something that stop them!!
