Ever wondered what cultural shocks you will face when you move to The Netherlands?

Of course it will depend on where you’re originally coming from, but there are a few fun and interesting things mentioned in this video. I’m sure you’ll get adapted to the Dutch culture – maybe not so much to the weather!

Let me know in the comments if you have faced any cultural shocks in The Netherlands, I would be really happy to know more!


Hey there, I’m Beatriz, a 26 year old Portuguese girl!

In 2019 I moved to Amsterdam, from sunny Lisbon, after landing a job in the city of the canals. A year and many adventures later, I decided to start writing about my endeavors in Amsterdam, my traveling adventures and more personal stories I believe are worth sharing.

In 2021, I decided to create this Youtube channel to help my fellow expats that are considering moving to Amsterdam or The Netherlands. Moving can be really tough, so I’m here to help you out and make your life easier!
