What do expats find most challenging?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Katwijk. They wrote...

"Expats in Katwijk may find the directness of the Dutch people challenging, as they are known for their straightforward communication style which can sometimes be perceived as blunt or rude. The language barrier can also be a significant challenge, as while many Dutch people speak English, daily life and local customs are primarily conducted in Dutch. The weather can also be a challenge, as it is often cold, rainy, and windy, which can be a significant adjustment for those from warmer climates. The Dutch culture of cycling everywhere can also be a challenge for those who are not used to it. Lastly, the Dutch bureaucracy can be difficult to navigate for expats, especially when it comes to matters like immigration, housing, and taxes," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Katwijk, The Netherlands.
