Marloes Horst | 24 | Friesland, Holland
Friesland is in the countryside; little villages and stuff. It has all the most hardcore Dutch thing—the windmills, the long stretched out fields of cows, tulips. We had an hour bike ride to get to school, and everyone from the different villages would meet up at one spot and ride, wearing the biggest, dorkiest backpacks.
