This is a very small section! I'd better fill it out a bit more later, otherwise people will only see the negative side of my personality!
How can you not admire a country whose first line of the constitution promotes tolerance of almost everything except intolerance?
Dutch is also a nicer language than German, although it does seem to involve a certain amount of phlegm where the letter G is concerned.
Amsterdam is also quite an interesting place :-) and they speak English better than most South Londoners.

Belgium is very under-rated. OK, so the politicians might be a bit dodgy and the economy somewhat strained, but the people are incredibly friendly, the food is wonderful (when they keep dioxin out of it) and the architecture can be magnificent. Bruges is a giant chocolate shop!
Despite what Americans and fellow Kiwis tell me, I still believe UK TV is the best in the world. The political programs are very interesting ("Question Time"), and the comedy can be divine ("Goodness Gracious Me", "BlackAdder", "Red Dwarf") or dire ("Men Behaving Badly"). With "Queer as Folk" we got some sexy scenes and a great sales pitch for Manchester as the style capital of the North of England. Channel 5 proved that 4 channels is sufficient for one country :-)
