    I've always been interested in the Netherlands.

    My grandparents are from there and speak highly of it. As I have dutch citizenship and passport I've been considering moving there, it sounds so lovely. Are there any tips on where to move to?

    My Grandmother was from The Netherlands,

    she moved to UK when she was young so I guess that makes me a quarter Dutch? I have an Aunt (who I've met once) and lots of cousins living there too who I've never met.
