Long thread - 10 years in The Netherlands.
The Queens (now Kings) day, Gay parade, Amsterdam Dance Event, Jazz in the VondelPark every Saturday afternoon during the spring and summer, museum night where you can visit almost every museum in Amsterdam for free, plus fun activities outside, the light festival... Discovered pirate radio station, hackerspaces, film exhibitions in squatted places, a somewhat underground gay bar, tried some drugs, and met lots of good people and friends along the way.
