Daily prompt #6: What do you love about where you live?

What do you love about where you live?

In the Netherlands huh? Well it depends to where we compare it to. If we compare it to America or any other country behind us in social development, I totally love to have affordable basic healtcare and a self-respecting government that actually tries to help people. I do!

But then, if we take all that for granted, what more is there?

Unlike countries like Spain or France we aren’t able to thrive on our perfect sunshiny weather, nor can we create ski-paradises like the alps (France, you spoiled little brat!) cause, well, we don’t have any mountains.

What we do have? Bluntness, in a good way. Taboos are here only to be broken.

I was raised with no stupid avoiding of conversations about sex, menstruations, drugs (those conversations would mostly be medical and with the conclusion to not do drugs!) and more. Anything is worth an open conversation. This made me better, because parents can teach children things without shaming them, and without them being afraid to fail.

PS: I am NOT a cheese fan. πŸ‡³πŸ‡±
