Long thread - 10 years in The Netherlands. 

Precisely 10 years ago, 24th of June 2010, I was landing at Schiphol airport in The Netherlands with a friend, in what would be my first time living abroad.
Leaving my girlfriend back in Portugal, with a promise of a better life for us, carrying some small savings on my pocket, a very tiny appartment for both of us, and a job waiting for me, life seemed promising.


Long thread - 10 years in The Netherlands. 

My first job was as a support engineer for a relatively small ISP, the small office had around 20 different nationalities at the time I was working there, and I noticed that the working culture was different from what I was used to.
My ideas were taken into consideration, was being rewarded and appreciated by the effort that I was putting into my job, and pretty much a flat hierarchy.
