I've lived in The Netherlands twice,* for a total of about two years.
I was in Amsterdam for the last half of 2000, when I resided in Osdorp (a west metropolitan district) after spending a few weeks on a houseboat that I'd rented online.
When I left Amsterdam, I went to Seville for about a half-year, and from there to Dublin for the summer of 2001. I passed through Galway on the way to Kilkenny, where I got a job and met friends.
In the summer of 2003, I was cracking up to get out of town and went on a wandering bus vacation into the west. There, I met a Dutch girl, and I was soon back in The Netherlands Nijmegen, where she had grown up. I lived there from August of 2003 to January 2005.
Kim said she needed me and I returned to be with her.
Thus, it may be more accurate to say that I lived in The Netherlands three times or twice [with an asterisk.]
