Funny I am born in Norway but kind of feel like I really belong in the Netherlands. Although I ended up going home to Norway. But I still really miss the biking, old houses, canals, windmills and tulip fields. I miss the urban culture and the food. It is never easy to pick a country though. The Netherlands rains a bit too much and while I love Dutch city centers more I probably like the Norwegians suburbs more. I have this beautiful landscape when I walk through my neighborhood where I can see forrest, colorful houses all the way to the Oslo fjord. But this landscape is also exactly what makes biking totally crappy in this country. When biking the flatness of the Netherlands is such a thing of beauty.
