The Ways Of The Dutch & Living In The Hague
The one thing that captures my attention like no other, every time I come for a visit, is the way that people conduct their day to day lives. Their priority is making and taking the time to enjoy the simple things of life. Here, they celebrate the warm weather like it is the best gift they could be given, and also make time for many outdoor activities such as visiting the beautiful, lush gardens throughout the city, going to spend time in the sun by the gorgeous beaches, or biking along the picturesque canals. Whether at the beach, sipping coffee or having a nice dinner, the Dutch really take time to live life to the fullest. As an American, that sense of taking time for true enjoyment, a less rushed existence, and more emphasis on relaxation and recharging is probably the thing that stands out to me the most. It is what I try earnestly to take home with me every time I return from Holland.
