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.

You can be you.
I never suffered any judgment from anyone for who I am and in what I believe in. People honestly don't care, as long as you treat them with respect, doesn't matter what you dress with, where did you study - if at all -, the color of your hair, your skin color or where you are from.
