For a change, I don't live in Amsterdam, but in a smaller city in the centre of the country: Utrecht. It is worth visiting, since it is one of the oldest cities of the country, and has a convenient small centre. (You can walk anywhere). It hosts one of the biggest universities of the country and breaths the students life through the numerous restaurants, bars and clubs.

I live in the Netherlands, but can share some knowledge on other countries in Europe as well!

I live and work in Johannesburg for over five months now, and will stay another two. I think I know a little bit on how newcomers feel overwhelmed and maybe even frightened by 'big, bad & beatiful Jozi'. But I know as well how and where to overcome that first impression and see the true beauty of the city! I can give some tips on Cape Town and travelling the country by car as well.
