Some differences which I observed in Holland:
the most obvious one is that the national language here is Dutch
the roads and cars here are reversed for eg the driver seat is in the left side of the car
people here cycle a lot (as cycle lanes were developed earlier than roads in Holland) and perhaps that's why there are not many obese people around
transport here is very expensive
the daycard for only bus transport is Groningen (a province in Holland) is 10 euros whereas in Leeds the most expensive we can get is 3.50pounds
prostitution and drugs taking are legal in Holland
Holland use kilos and grams to measure weight
boat canal is a form of transport and some could afford to live on floating houses which are very expensive according to our boat tour guide
we have to use our own plastic bags when buying things (some shops in UK do that but not the main ones)
vandalism is quite rampant in Holland
the architecture of the buildings in Holland is very unique! (I'll write more about this later)
the people here beg for money in a different way
it's kinda weird that on some price tags, the dot is replaced by a comma
last but not least...
in UK we have poundland, in Holland we have euroland!
