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.

With all of this work atmosphere and easiness, it was fairly easy and quick to find a new job or house, which allowed me to grow professionally during these years in different companies and settings, without having to worry that my life would be super difficult in a worst case where I would be out of a job. Luckily there were always plenty of opportunities here, the difficult part was always where to chose to go and which path to take.
