A few things surprised me when I moved here; the directness of the Dutch, although they are friendly there are times when they are straight down the line! I also didn’t factor in the wind and how hard this can make it when you are cycling. I now have a whole new appreciation for walking places; I think you also notice a lot more detail in your surroundings when you’re on foot.
This city is phenomenal, I love the bike riding and there is a healthy atmosphere. I didn’t ride in Toronto for fear of dying but here it is like getting around a little village, the city is so compact.
