Thanks, a re visit to one of the few cool bridge locations in the neighborhood, in the summer everything here is over grown so winter time only. But yes scouting is essential, I usually start via google maps or something like that, usually I have an idea and need a fitting location, or I have a good location but need a good idea
To make things a bit more clear Amsterdam is not a representation of the Netherlands (Holland for the less educated)but yeah its a special unique place indeed, and if you ask me living in the Netherlands is way over rated anyways, more and more a place for the wealthy if you know what i mean. But I live in Boxtel in the south, its like 1,5 hours drive by car to Amsterdam. Let me know when you are in the country!
Yes born and raised, but like I said I think living here is over rated, a lot of people who dont live here think this is 'the place to be' but I dont agree, it was maybe 10-20 years ago but a lot has changed for the worse.
Without going too much into details its like in the rest of the EU I guess, we have to pay more and more and get back less and less. Times are changing for the worse in the world if you ask me. Like in this country, unfair tax system, unfair healthcare system, etc. etc. did you know that the dutch government does the most phone taps in the world? that weed in this country is NOT legal? at the moment coffee shops are only allowed to sell to people with the dutch nationality, and still its not legal, but more like not illegal. The list is endless non the less it could be much worse...
