Usually with satire ..jokes ( humour no pun intented) etc
In general we learn from each other.. If one of our neighbors has done something good and benefical to its people.. rest take an advice and apply to
fit their system if possible.. if crap happens we shake our heads and say "Oh that was a huge mistake.. glad we didn´t do the same "
But a lot of Scandinavian soccer players play in The Netherlands and we love speed skating which also being done by Scandinavians...it`s actually
rather difficult to find non sympathetic Scandinavian athletes, so that results automatically in a positive view of them...the same as with
I've been there. Like every place it has its drawbacks too(though less than most places)
Off the top of my head:
-If you're used to/like Latin intensity of behaviour, you'll be left flat. The scandinavians have a cold temperament(I don't mean this in a bad
way, it's just the way they are. They have their own charm)
-Your ass will freeze in the winter
-They have no Manhattans or Parises. Hotbeds of metropolitan culture. If you like that, you won't find it there
-Stiff bureaucracy. You need a permit to sneeze, figuratively speaking
