Young people in Netherlands have bikes and go everywhere with them. To school, to work, to the gym, to the beach when it`s not too far.
Public trasportation system works and can bring you wherever you want. Even if dutch people always complain about trains` delay and high prices, the service is still really good compared to Italy.
Young people in Netherlands are independent. I was looking for independence when I left Italy. And here I found it. There are some moments in which I feel a sudden and surprising happiness. I realise I am living and I am living the best. I am an individual and I am alive and I am free. I`m on a journey and it`s going to last all my life. In those moments I understand the real point of being an exchange student.
