Irati: “if someone tells you that Dutch people are unfriendly, you don't have to generalize. This beautiful city and the people in it made my experience”

-

My stay in Amsterdam was the best experience in my life. Because of two main factors.

Firstly the city, is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. I visited the city once before as a kid, and Amsterdam is truly as beautifull and fun as I remembered. All in all, I love this city!

Secondly, all the people I met, made my exchange experience amazing! In general I stayed with spanish people, because these people were also my flatmates. However, at the university (Hogeschool Van Amsterdam) I met two friendly Dutch guys, who helped me with the program and taught me about dutch culture. They also invited me to their local village. Which was a typical town in the Netherlands, small and with a lot of canals.

So if someone tell you that dutch people are unfriendly, you don't have to generalize. They will help you in everything you need.

I wish that in the future I would be able to visit that amazing city again.
