The lowest elevation in Europe yet tallest people in the world. Welcome to the land that...MAKES its own land. The place where water is your biggest enemy and friend. Europe's interesting, meticulous, yet a little crazy and adventurous son, the #NETHERLANDS.
-...Oh and for the record, that random dude is Hannah's little brother.
6:14 You swapped the names of the roads. The top one is the E22 or A7, and the bottom one is the N302
Love the Curly guy, he's so very funny 🤣
@kasper41291 And Israel too
As a Dutchman, the strong lack of bicycles in your video upsets me. We've even got public bicycle chargers for our electric bikes.
Do you speak any of the Cushitic languages?
I love how it’s called Nether-lands but it has so many canals and
Indeed. Bikes have been tied very strongly to Dutch nationalism especially recently with the Russian oil crisis. The Dutch bicycle infastructure also is being copied all over Europe. The new bicycle storage in Amsterdam is dripping in Dutch nationalism.
@paul wassenaar zoo wijnig fietsen serieus iedereen fietst
I’m Dutch, I live in the Netherlands.
This guy explained our country better that my history teacher!
Though while the total population density is higher it isn't as crowded as many people often like to imagine. Something to consider is that the Nile delta is about the same size as the Netherlands but has over 3 times the population. However while Egypt has that incredibly dense region it also has massive amounts of empty desert and that forces the average density down.
So it isn't that the Netherlands is horribly crowded, it's just that it doesn't really have many empty areas.
Ik weet nu meer over Nederland dan ik daarvoor deed lol. En ik ben nederlander
@Mike Van Bijnen ik ook
that is actually the first time i hear an american pronounce "gouda" correctly, well done
@Zigi Samblak and pronouncing schiphol as "shiphole"
howda you pronounce that?
It was very funny and amazing he said it good
As a German whose ex is a Dutch girl I’ve got to admit that the Netherlands is still my favorite country in Europe. The Dutch also have mastered combining high work ethics with an relaxed attitude that I wouldn’t have thought possible.
I have a great grandpa that was german and a great grandmother that was Dutch 🤙
you mean a niederländisch girl
The Netherlands really do never forget Canada liberated them during WW2. I am canadian and went to the netherlands for a music festival and was treated so insanely warmly everywhere I went. Very good people.
Yeah they're soooo happy with their multiculturalism and post-communism 🤣
In my city Zutphen there is a whole neighbourhood where almost every street is named after canadian soldiers or canada. One canadian soldier died there and he has a cross to remember him with flowers laying there regularly.
LOL I LIVE IN NETHERLANDS
Hello, I just wanna share some stories about my grandfather who is a veteran and grandfather's friend who is a veteran Dutch soldier.
He ever told me about his struggles when he was still under colonialism. at that time he was caught by the dutch army and after interrogation he was allowed to go home. when he was detained and interrogated, there was a dutch soldier, he was very nice. he brought my grandfather went home at that time. After many years of independent Indonesia, when my grandpa saw the Dutch people who are on pilgrimage at the Dutch cemetery, he talked with them in Dutch because he was fluent in Dutch. maybe at that time the Dutch army who helped my grandfather heard the news in the Netherlands so he visited Indonesia. After that they met again and they became best friends until now. The Dutch veteran also visits Indonesia every year in August to carry out the commemoration of Indonesia's independence. But now he has died. My grandfather is really sad because he has passed away. Im also sad because he was very good to my grandfather and also to me.and now my grandpa also passed away. but I'm sure they must have been happy there:').thanks for read this.always spread kindness and love
that's beautiful bro
The highest peak of the Netherlands is a person
Yeah it’s my friend Douwe cool guy 😊
Ironically, Zandvoort, the circuit that hosts the Dutch Grand Prix, has the wildest elevation changes on the entire F1 calendar
Haha, it must be a 350 m long person then.😉
I know this is a joke but actually the highest peak it’s a mount of 325 meters lol,only few parts of Netherlands have true elevations
As a Dutch person I 100% agree
We dont say : “Its raining a lot today”. No, we say “WAT EEN KUT WEER”! And i think thats beautiful.
Wan n zeikweer
in the netherladns whe dont say :hey look a macdonalds.whe say:MACCIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I live near the Dutch border and i can confirm that the Dutch and Flemish people are the best of friends. And as friends do, we make fun of eachother.
@IdkwhattonamemychannelbutiwanttomakeitatmaxlongPls it's fine, the Dutch vs Belgians meme is pretty obscure.
@Gerben time i didnt get the meme sorry
@IdkwhattonamemychannelbutiwanttomakeitatmaxlongPls I don't hate Belgium, it's the same meme about France and England hating each other. As for the name part, everyone's name means something and the other guy basically pointed and laughed, I wouldn't have minded if they made a joke about my Dutch heritage but he pointed at my name, so I made a counter argument against his joke.
@Gerben time imagine complaining about people because they were born in a country ya don't like also hi i also have a name that translates into a word
Louis Garidel wel to us Brabantians they are , why are we called North Brabant because southern Brabant is Belgium, we are linguistically and culturally the same we are Roman catholic, unlike Hollanders
Canada and the Netherlands have an unbreakable bond 🇨🇦❤🇳🇱
canada is very friendly to us, and the other way around. CA NL ♥
Silently crying because the Dutch guy called my province “North-Holland” when it’s really “North-Brabant” 😂
Also, a small note: Willem van Oranje was NOT the first king of the Netherlands. He was what is called a “stadhouder”. The Netherlands didn’t become a kingdom until 1815 with the first king being Willem I van Oranje (they sometimes get confused because they’re both called Willem).
@Dive_Deep Nope ... erger nog die Hollanders hebben eeuwenlang de rest van Nederlands als slagveld gebruikt
Dat had ik ook rip noord Brabant man
@Brian J. yes I know technically Louis Napoleon was the first king but since the Netherlands was under french occupation we don’t really count him as our first king 😂
The first king was actually Louis Napoleon, under french rule, during the time Napoleon took over the mainland of europe. But yes, the first dutch King was William I
frustrating that he dared to call Brabant Holland
Wij benne Brabant en ginne ordinaire Holland nie
I’ve visited all the Dutch municipalities and I’ve lived in two of them, Aruba and Saint Marten. I’ve been following you on yt since 2015 when I’ve lived in Saint Marten. Thanks for al the ADHD geography info. I’ve learned so much from you about my favorite topic. I’ve visited 60 countries so far. I even visited Afghanistan three times. The country of your first episode. Keep up the good work, Barbs. Greetings from a Dutch, long time fan.
St. Marten is a beautiful place. My cousins’ wife is from there and we went there for the wedding
leuk, lekker alles zien! :)
Ik doe wat dat betreft niks, altijd leuk om te horen dat iemand wel een passie heeft ;)
We met them just before they shot this episode in Clip-Share Space LA, and they were the nicest people ever! Thank you guys!
@KangmasTris amazing video!
@Bon as if, your country is *also not important* to the rest of the show
let them be, dude
Wait, you MET Barbs and the gangs in LA?
What are you guys doing there anyway?
Didn't expect you to be here as well, but it's cool to see you, bang Andovi
Didn't expect you here
I'm Swedish. I had a long distance relationship with a dutch guy. The Netherlands is a really cool country, and I'm happy that I've had the possibility to visit. I really miss Poffertjes!!
poffertjes zijn lekker
@Cyril Widdershoven hallo, hoe gaat het ?
@The lazy Dutchman i agree
@corbeau hahaha i don't care if it's just dough because it's sooo tasty!!
Literally that sets Netherlands apart from all the countries is a the best country wide cycling infrastructure in the world, yet it is not mentioned.
@Carlos Caminando those are 3 cities, not an entire nation.
@Carlos Caminando copenhagen is not the same, cycling infrastructure is way better in the Netherlands.
I’ve been hit by a car 4 times this year so yeah it’s great
The whole water thing sets them apart
The Netherlands are blessed with such beautiful, geographical variety of sceneries.
Also a great friend of The Netherlands was Japan. We've had a trade agreement with them for over 400 years without any breaks in between. We were the only country to be allowed to visit when Japan closed the country.
There was some strife during WW2 due to Japan removing Dutch rule over (now) Indonesia because of their oil industry which was vital for Japan's war effort.
But we cool now.
Hello. My. Friend
Love to the Netherlands 🇳🇱 ♥ 🇮🇪 from Ireland
Love to both Ireland and the Netherlands from Utah! Beautiful cultures and fantastic people. 🇺🇸 ♥️ 🇳🇱 ♥️ 🇮🇪
thanks homie, irish people are welcome here
You forgot about bicycles, in the netherlands we cycle a lot.
And The Ice man
Ja heel vaak hahaha!
Hello Dutch people! I’m from Canada.🇨🇦
thanks you for the gorgeous tulips you send us everyone year, it’s very sweet of you to do that and we appreciate it very much! ♥️
We, the Dutch Low Saxons have not forgotten the Canadians. My besties are Curaçaos-Canadians.
Thanks for saving our asses! If you ever visit let me show you around 🇳🇱❤️🇨🇦
One other thing: 98% of all the MDMA produced on earth comes from the Netherlands, more specifically from the province Noord-Brabant ;)
@A Dutch Serbian guy Canada, Tjechië, België en Polen zijn ook landen met veel productie
@Max waar word het nog meer gemaakt dan?
Alle tiener zeggen ja tegen mdma
Alle tieners zeggen ja tegen MDMA
Im from noord Brabant
This was an excellent video! My Oma actually lived in the Netherlands during WWII, and she met my grandfather there, who was serving for the Canadian military. If you ever heard stories about the "Dutch war brides," my Oma was one of them.
About the music section, one artist of note (no pun intended) is Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, aka that guy who remixed that Elvis Presley song in the early 2000s. While his early work fused EDM with rock & metal, he went on to make music for video games and movies, including Scooby-Doo, Deadpool, the Sonic The Hedgehog movies, and several films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Me as a dutchman, i can say that the part of "gekoloniseerd" is the pure definition of accuracy
elke video dat over nederland gaat terwijl ze engels spreken/zijn heeft wel een comment met G E K O L O N I S E E R D en elke nederlander gaat stuk als ze het lezen.
@fortnite balls most of m probably know
@Bisma Naufa nah fam
@fortnite balls you too
@Dirk Rovers do 5yo or 10yo kids know tht they sell some other bad stuff rather than coffee in the shop
As an Indonesian I absolutely love this country
Kan julle Nederlanders my Afrikaans verstaan? Like as jy doen
geen probleem. Is gewoon 17de Nederlands ( Diets)
ja ik begrijp je
As a German, we love our neighbors. I actually worked at Phantasialand (theme park near cologne) this summer and there were a lot of dutch visitors. I then returned the favor and went to De Efteling with a friend and that was a great day.
As a Dutchman, it is my duty to declare that in the name of his majesty, King Willem-Alexander, this video has hereby officially been colonized by the Kingdom of the Netherlands!
@Joeri U lmao I didn't even catch that, that's hilarious :'D
G E K O L O N I S E E R D
Me, and indonesian = Oh no, run
@Thē NaNaû same
i love the netherlands and it's my favourite country i visited even though i only went once. people there are so friendly and nice and also damn attractive lol. i wish i can visit again soon love from singapore!
Greetings from Germany. I love the netherlands. They have a national color. That's supercool. And the people are so chill and funny. At least those I know.
Thanks. I think this is just cultural, but I LOVE flags with orange on them. I even wish sometimes we kept the old colours to differentiate ourselves with the colour that makes us proud instead of the standard blue red and white combo. By the way, no hard feelings about WW2 from this guy. It happened, let's move on😁😁👍🏼 🇳🇱🧡🇩🇪
Edit: I also have a cussin in Germany by the way. Lives in Duisberg. So I get to visit every now and then. You guys have the best beer on the planet after all😜🍻
@Rockin' Resurrection yes
@Rockin' Resurrection I've had German lessons in high school for 2 years. Speaking German generally isn't much of a problem for me. But writing and German grammar.... Ungh...
@Rockin' Resurrection yes i agree
@Nova Atom The problem actually is that our languages are so similar that it's hard for me not wanting to switch into German while speaking dutch
I've living here for a month and I can confirm the awesomeness of this country. And also, how freaking tall is people here.
The tallest mountain in the Netherlands are the people.
15:25 here to remind everyone that Eddie van Halen's dad was Dutch and his mom was Indonesian
RIP Eddie, heroes are remembered but legends never die
En Jimi Hendrix
I've lived my whole life in walking distance from one of those sand drifts and it's like the most normal thing for me. I never knew they were uncommon.
The Netherlands is a great country, i love the people alot.
Can't wait to get back there soon
Dutch people are very nice
I love what they are doing for my country
Lots love from bangladesh
One of the most beautiful countries I have ever been to. Kind people great food and quality of life!
OMG, you didn't mention bicycles!!!!!! It's our life!!!!
Don't forget hondepoop!
@Justicar L I mean in any big city, like New York, London, Singapore etc. bicycles would be pretty damn handy as well
It's just weird that they're so uncommon there
Wat vinden we van de wielrenners die oude mensen aanrijden.
The "hmm we should hang out some time" comment from Bangladesh is actually pretty accurate, there are numerous projects of water management in other countries.
The Netherlands also helped with the flooding in New Orleans in 2001(?)
Yes, an 50 head strong American delegation visited the Dutch waterworks some months after the flood of New Orleans in 2005.They based their 'Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan' on Dutch flood control. The main idea is seeing water as an asset instead of a danger, so they gave much more room for water on a friendly and natural way. Less concrete and much more absordable surfaces all in and around New Orleans so it can absorb and store excess stormwater.
We have those buffers everywhere in the cities in the Netherlands and combined them with recreational or/and natural functions. And around rivers we have spare-farmerland that can take the function of a temporaly waterbuffer when the river can't take all rainwater from hunderd of miles away (like Germany/France or even the Alpes).
So interesting country. Can't imagine an entire country being totally flat. I live in a relatively hilly Czechia, luckily in the Elbe valley which is the flattest part of the country so we have a "preview" of Netherlands there ... including similar agriculture, sand, flowers, wind mills and floods. Still we do see mountains literally everywhere around us in the distance on a clear weather.
I've been watching this GN for almost 7 years now just because the content is absolutely amazing, and finally, today is the day I'm using this channel for a school project. Wow.
Love and huge respect! they are very beautiful, polite, good mannered and highly cultural people. Once I had flatmate from netherland and i still miss her, so nice girl! Love from 🇬🇪
You know even as a german, hearing johan cruyff described as these soccer players does hurt my heart. This guy was a phenomenal player, but as a coach, he revolutionized the way soccer was played with his tactics and strategies.
Watching this video because i, as a german, visited the netherlands hundreds of times and realized i know nothing about this country. I still love it everytime i'm there
Vielen dank, Nachbahr :)
Fun fact: New Zealand is named after the dutch province of Zeeland which means Sealand
He said that in the video.
this guy explained stuff that probably 70% of the inhabitants here dont even know
or even explain!😂
Watching this video is making me very proud being a dutchman.
Thanks for the amazing video, I use it as an introduction video to my international students. And it was amazing to spot you guys in the waiting line in de Efteling this autumn :)
*Lives in the Netherlands*
*Doesn’t live in Amsterdam*
*Americans asking how’s that possible*
@Fumuki foreigner you mean Americans 😂😂
Lmao I'm French and when you tell a foreigner you don't live in Paris they're gonna freeze for a couple of seconds wondering how it's possible
Amerikanen denken dat Holland een Land is 😂😂
laughs in sss and abc islands
17:17 'Their little brother they love picking fun on and calling stupid, BELGIUM'
This is so true we have way too many jokes about Belgium 🤪
But why goes a South Dutch to bed with a brick and a torch?
So he can use the brick to turn off the light and see of the light is out with the torch
flitsertheo well you’re to busy trying to figure out if Brussels is its own country or not
On the other hand we Belgians have no jokes about the Dutch. There is nothing funny about these people.
Thank you so much for doing your research! I've seen so many video's about the Netherlands that talk about "fun fact's" "Need to know's" and "Weird things" but hardly any have actually done any research, which is really annoying. So thank you for making an accurate video :). And yes, Belgium is absolutely our little brother, like New Zealand is Australia's little brother.
Limburg ( minor typo on the map in the first few minutes) :D That being said this is what I learned in school, during 12 years of schooling summarized in 1 video. Just a fact about Papiamentu, it's more like Portuguese (the way words are pronounced can sound like Portuguese), it has some Dutch words, but also has Spanish.
The word gezellig is one of my favorites, while the basic translation in English is coziness, it falls short of what it really means, it is used in so many scenarios.
I love the Netherlands. I’ve been listening to edm for years from all kind of genres and after realised that most of the djs and producers are Dutch, I just fell in love with the country lol. Die hard hardstyle fan here!
I am a dutchie and I found this video veeeeeery good. You covered everything which defines the Netherlands I feel.
The netherlands is an amazing country - i love to live here!!!
All I have to say is that Dutch people have to be proud of everything they have. I probably wouldn't have favorite country if there was no electronic music,especially Martin Garrix!
Netherlands museums are really top notch, i also got one of those rabbit peluche in the airport in an adorable xmas outfits. greetings from italy.
This is an incredibly detailed summary of my country, well done!
I’m completely serious in saying that I’ve learned more geography in the past 2 days from your channel than I have from school
10% of people watching this: people interested in the Netherlands
90%: Dutch people
Helemaal goed! 🇳🇱
Translation: Of course
Ik ben half Nederlands. Wat nu?
I am half Dutch. What now?
9.99% of people watching this: People intreested in the Netherlands
10%: Dutch people
0.01% of people (me): Interested in the Netherlands because of pre-colonization
This was amazing, thank you. I loved the video as a Dutch person. It was super funny and accurate. Also your pronunciation is completely fine and enjoyable. You did forget about bicycles, that's kind of one of our main things.
the overall pronunciation was good but I have to say I flinched when you said Ijselmeer
Yasilmir... I think he meant: Eiselmer.. That's how i would say it.
@MoonStars 99 Goed zo lol
@MoonStars 99 lol Fair enough XD Btw hoe gaat ie :P
For people who have never been in the Netherlands or aren’t Dutch, try stroopwafels they are delicious! I’m Dutch btw haha
We also have a soccer team called FC Groningen, which has almost the exact same logo as this channel.
Victor Oprea Most viewers are probably American, so use ''soccer'' to not confuse them.
@Abdimalik Gaal Because he is American and most people watching are.
@Wow Jack then y did u say soccer
I loved the video as a dutch person , not even my parents could explain it this well!
In dutch we don't say "I love you so much" we say "je krijgt nog 1.60 van me voor die frikandelbroodjes, stuur maar ff een tikkie" and I think that's beautiful
So hard word
@Olaf Witkam 1.80? Je bedoelt 85 cent
ja man dat klopt (yes ma'am thats right)
I live in Slovakia (eastern from Czechia and southern from Poland) and my mother's boyfriend was living for three years in Germany - Nord Rhein Vestdallen and in the district that was about 20 km from border with Netherland. When we've arrived there, we went only for trip in Netherlands, just few times in Germany 😃 simply beautiful Netherlands
Absolutely loved this, brilliant job guys!
Out of all of the geography videos on this channel, this one is by far the most interesting.
Also with the Netherlands and Canada: the Canadians liberated the Netherlands in WWII.
I feel so proud to be of both countries (Canadian of Dutch descent)
@Martijn B I’m Dutch mate, i am merely stating facts. The plan was for the majority of free French/Americans to invade France and for the British Empire forces to invade the Benelux countries. Though some polish people were involved with the liberation of our country, the size of if was pretty small compared to the Empire and most people don’t mention it. The propaganda of the French works till thos day when they make it seem that they freed themselves, while the truth is that the Americans carried them and only allowed them to enter paris first after the Germans were mostly defeated for a symbolic victory and for propaganda. We Dutchies have never forgotten the sacrifices, especially the brave Canadians. And yes, it was a invasion. Sure it was a liberation in our pov, but in tactical terms it was still a invasion.
@GigaChadTheDemigod. I don't know about the French, but the Dutch don't consider the British, Canadian and Polish forces entering the country an invasion.
@Martijn B The Americans invaded France while the Canadians and Brits invaded the Benelux etc.
@Tuub Surely the Canadians and the Polish, as part of the British army, finally liberated the Netherlands as Montgomery's army held the Northern part of the front. But the Americans played role in the war in the air and their paratroopers played a large role in Marget-Garden.
@Daniel Van Mook Americans didn't play a big role in the Netherlands, they were more concerned with invading Germany. The Netherlands was mostly liberated by the UK and its colonies.
Not only farmers but also sailors used clogs; they kept your feet warm and dry, but the main advantage was they wouldn't slip on the wet wooden surface of a ship's deck.
Netherlands is the most beautiful country I’ve even been to 🇳🇱❤️ people there are so polite, and they always loved to help us find our destinations and all that stuff. I’ve also noticed that they are very open minded and they support every type of choice/lifestyle ❤️
I’ve been to Amsterdam twice and I’m going again this summer 😀 can’t wait 🙌🏼
Greetings from Greece 🇬🇷 💙
Can’t wait to have you again! Have fun in our country!!
You can always visit the other parts to you know
Limburg is very different from Amsterdam
Julian Beekhuis trust me, I’ve smelled a looot of weed, because we were always at the city center, but it didn’t bother me at all 😛😂 Also, my brother just came from his holidays in Amsterdam and I’d asked him to bring me some weed lollipop 🍭 😂😂😂 it was gross, but still cool 😎 😝
griekenland is ook erg leuk!
I live in the Netherlands and the weather is quite depressing😂
Muito de conhecer esse lindo país.🙌🏾🥰
Got to visit there a few times, seeing cities such as Maastricht, Amsterdam and a really great place, 3 landes punt. As a South African learning Dutch, I really wanted to come here, my 8th country
The conclusion is so clear and efficient. I love it! 😄😆
Very interesting video. I actually learned a few things about my own country.
Love Netherlands from Romania🇷🇴❤🇳🇱
Dutch people are tall because if the country floods they can still stick their head out of the water.
Edit: Mom I'm famous!
As a dutch one I can say this was hilarious and of course true. I loved your video!
I learned a bunch about my country today. Thank you :)
Loved the video.
Just a suggestion:
There are three officially recognised regional languages in the Netherlands: Limburgs, Fries and Nedersaksisch (Low Saxon).
And then there are the official recognised non-regional minority languages Sinti-Romanes and Jiddisch, and on the special municipalities Papiamento (Bonaire) and English (Saba and Sint-Eustatius).
So basically the Netherlands has 8 languages that are officially recognised.
Im surprised how much I've learned about my own country in just one video
As a dutchman i think that everything Said in this video is really accurate. Amazing video
Missing fun fact: the Netherlands is the second largest exporter of agricultural goods in the world. Surpassing China, India, Brazil, and Russia. Pretty incredible for a country 1/10th the size of California...
@Sofía Silva Valverde might want to get your information from any other source then weibo
@Joe Bowden You don;t seem to be the type to be capable of identifying "a great history of powerful civilsations" anywhere on this planet.
@Eugene Balfour lol no I just read it's the eighth largest exporting country in petroleum, medicaments, equipment, blood (?), machine parts and computers, not agricultural products... Just a quick search to know they certainly dont surpass China in agriculture 😒
You’re amazing!!! 🤩 please continue making videos!!
I'm dutch and still learned quite a few things from this video.
Your pronunciation was not bad 👍
its fun seeing an english person try to pronounce dutch words keep up the good work btw :)
One thing you probably should have pointed out about the relationship between Germany and the Netherlands is the similarity between Dutch and Low German. Low German is a minority language of northern Germany and the Netherlands, and is similar to both languages, sort of a mid-point on the West Germanic dialect continuum. They also have a shared history as both were formerly parts of the Holy Roman Empire and first areas to convert to Protestantism. Either way, cool video!
Hannah KILLS it with the country-acting!
Netherlands is actually running a massive flood protection project in Bangladesh since the geography is kinda similar, thanks dutch guys
Geen probleem man 🌷🧀🚴♀️
Human Resources Maasvlakte 2 is peanuts compared to the origional Ijselmeer plan, and just create a polder for the entire markermeer and ijselmeer. However, you are talking about a 'minor' land extension project (in civil engineering terms) which is to boost export and keep our dominant harbour position in Europe. The revenue of that is way higher then that of new polder/farmland. Besides, maasvlakte 2 is not a polder so having to spend continuously money on pumping is not needed
@Terr y We actually did, we took land from the North Sea to extend our harbour. It's called the Maasvlakte 2. It's was opened in 2013 (and yes we also have a Maasvlakte 1, which we also took from the North Sea).
I am dutch / ik ben Nederlands
Otaku San your welcome 🙏🏻
You could have also mentioned that their East India Company (VOC, who also found that first stock exchange) can be labeled as the world's first megacorporation (like the ones in some of those dystopia fics); they got their own military, currency, their own system on their own! It eventually ended just before the 19th century. (I'm from Indonesia)
Vincent's voices is like a robotic voice speaking backwards, especially when speaking Dutch.
My Sunday School teacher grew up in South Africa ( his parents were missionaries there) just by chance one of my classmates was from the Netherlands- Ted and Tone, short for Antonius, had a few times of joking together. Ted's Afrikaans was pretty well understood by Tone, I sat on the sidelines. I was close neighbors with an Amish family, so knew a little German and then married into a Dutch family. I sorta could follow along. Even the week Tone was asked to lead us in prayer, I still got enough to understand. So that's that.
And P.S. most of the tallest are from Freisland- my Oma was Freis, and they actually have their own language. Handsome good- looking people from there.
Even in English it's still "Wadden" islands and not Walden islands ;) This is because it's called the Wadden Sea ;)
I love Holland, and I hope to visit it one day.
Yeah that is fun and all but you didn't mention the most glorious Dutch invention
**F R I K A N D E L B R O O D J E**
Frikandelbroodje is iconic for dutch
hoe word je een nederlandse student: goedkope energy en frikandelbroodjes, thats it
Great fun. I loved the fact that the presenters made fun of themselves trying to tackle Dutch pronunciations - let's face it, spoken Dutch does NOT behave like you think it might when you see it written out! Oh - and one BIG mistake (I had to laugh) the picture captioned King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima [12:23] was actually of Willem Alexander and his MOTHER, Beatrix. But that error aside, this was a welcome and informative video on the Netherlands. I love living here.
Good explanation! I didnt even know about sailing event in amsterdam XD but yeah, maybe they could have done a little bit more about VOC, dutch east indies and such. Its a dark side of our history, but it happened
My personal theory is that the Dutch are so tall so their heads can stay above water during floods, clogs are actually emergency flotation devices (explains why they’re kinda boat-shaped) and the windmills are massive fans to hold back the water so they have time to put on their clogs.
I just watched two videos of this page and I think it's pretty cool! I learnt a lot about the Netherlands here and I personally love this country, however, it's really funny how for the dutch language you apologized for the bad pronunciation, while in the Italian geography you pronounced everything in Italian (doing some mistakes) but you never said anything ahah. It's not a complain, I just wonder why everyone tries to speak Italian with a very bad imitation (that it's not nice for us) when for other countries this doesn't happen.
Apart from this small thought, I liked the video very much. How I said previously I love the Netherlands... after all my boyfriend is dutch.
Kisses from Italy
