Shelley Antscherl via Expat Arrivals:
Ready, Steady, Go Dutch, is the handbook that EVERY expat, trailing spouse, and immigrant to the Netherlands should be issued with when they find out they’re moving there. Any idea what a Burger Service Nummer is? Nope. Me neither – not until I tried to open a bank account. That’s when I discovered that being a fellow EU member counted for pretty much nothing when moving to the Netherlands. And who or what is the Gemeente? Another tongue-twister and dull building you’ll soon become very well acquainted with; whether you like it or not.What any expat really needs is the benefit of someone else’s experience to prepare them for what lies ahead, and that’s exactly what Ready, Steady, Go Dutch will do. This is a compilation of practical anecdotes from people of various nationalities, who have all blazed the trail before you, and it’s refreshingly honest.
