Campfire: Dutch life skills: What it means to live in the Netherlands

  • Wednesday 27 Sept
  • Campfire Pod 01, Level 2, Rotterdam Ahoy

The Netherlands is known internationally for tulips, windmills, wooden clogs and cheese – all great for souvenirs, but what do you really need to know if you are going to be living, working or studying in the Netherlands? How do you ‘doe normaal’ and survive Dutch culture as an ex-pat? Come along to hear the perspective of a local and an ex-pat as they take you through Dutch customer service, ‘bittergarnituur’ and much more.
