I was blown away, and could not imagine how she got a job there site unseen (how did she even interview) right out of chiropractor school, and arrived and bought a home.

Also she moved there with 2 large dogs so her housing needed to be accomodating for her dogs as well. Not certain if they were there when she arrived or they arrived shortly after the purchase was done.
The HGTV shows aren't very realistic. You can't buy a home in Holland without a local credit history any more than you can here. Not sure what kind of a job it was but she would have had to prove a European citizen couldn't do the job in order to get the work permit.

The VU is a university (Vrije Universiteit) which includes a teaching hospital.

Also want to add if you watch the episode (linked directly above) you can clearly see her family is taken aback, they are American and make comments that if they visit they are going to have to learn Dutch. So it is not like her parents are Dutch. And by their response to her move it doesn't seem like her grandparents were either.

Im from the US and lived in Japan for 14 years (marriage) Its not reccomended by me for long term due to the extreme xenophobia and nationalism with a recent touch of radioactivity. They dont speak English either. Reccomended: Singapore.

But they do know how to live through earthquakes, a tsunami and a nuclear reactor problem -- not one riot or act of looting.

And they also just re-elected the right-wing, racist corrupt Ishihara for governor of Tokyo for a 4th term. Shintar
I don't know about the locals of Singapore, but it's apparently the hot spot in Asia and is the only country over there expecting major brain gain. Developed Nations Attract Young vs. Educated Migrants

Singapore might be difficult for Americans as they have a lot of strict rules and regulations there. It's easy to get into trouble with the police. Just try dropping chewing gum on the floor The good thing about that is that it is a very tidy, clean place.
I also read they have an air quality problem because of the neighboring countries burning down their forests. There is not as much sunshine as one might expect. A friend of mine was there about half a year ago. She sent me lots of photos taken during her two-week stay, the weather was gloomy on almost all of them.

Well, personally I have no desire to live or work there, but I was pointing out apparently many others feel differently. It's attracting a ton of educated people right now according to that Gallup survey.
