Where did you learn that? Have you visited the Netherlands before? And do you also speak a little bit of Spanish?
I have never been to Norway but chances are high that I visit Oslo in 3 weeks time for a long weekend. Where in Norway are you from?
Great mindset, just be yourself over here and it will all turn out great. You should also join us with the FITD game. Maybe it's an idea we start a Suicide Tennis game ourselves over here.
I've only been to the Netherlands once, but I have a couple of Dutch friends who - like me - are coin collectors. I registered on Marktplaats.nl to see if I could get hold of a few old Dutch coins and picked up a few words in the process. I'm not active there now, haven't got enough time to pursue coin collecting atm. As for Spanish, I know basically nothing, save for the most common phrases you can hear in films. But my mother studied the language and was quite proficient. She was a language teacher.
FITD is somewhat too extensive for me. Suicide is better - just one match each day. But it's more fun with a lot of people and existing rankings you can climb (at least I think so), so getting started will be a challenge.
I'm from Fredrikstad, 100 kilometers due south of Oslo. Only about 40 kilometers from the Swedish border. Which region are you residing in? Zuid- or Noord-Holland, or one of the others?
