Frisians do everything just a little bit differently. Just a little more laid back. Just a little more rational. Just a little calmer, a little stronger willed, a little slower perhaps, but also a little freer.
We do most things similar to the rest of the country, but all these ‘just a littles’ make Friesland completely different.
That is why our character is so difficult to place for many Dutch people. It is why Escher is not just an artist, Doutzen is not just a model and Sven is not just an ice skater. The rest of the Netherlands finds it hard to define us and our whims, because we simply do things our own way.
But give us a chance and we will show you how much fun it is to live like a Frisian.
