Why live in the Netherlands?

The Netherlands in general

The Netherlands is a small and rather densely populated country with 18 million inhabitants. The official language is Dutch. It is a monarchy and currently the king is Willem-Alexander and the queen is Maxima of Argentinian origin.

It is a flat country with no mountains, mostly at sea level, and very green with bridges, canals, bicycles, flowers and windmills.
As a small country with a long tradition of foreign trade, the Dutch are very international. They usually speak several languages and almost everyone speaks English. In general they are open-minded, organised and quite down-to-earth.
