That was a great trip report although I suspect that I need a translator to make sure I understood all of it.

Well, back in my drinking days I can remember having a hotel bellhop put me on a luggage cart and take me back to my room from the hotel bar. Somehow I don't really fancy the idea of going off into a canal, would take forever to get the smell off me and I would imagine the ride over those cobbleston...

After reading this over all I can say is wow. You smoked more stuff in this one trip than I've done in the past 20 years or more. I admit I'm not much of a smoker, I haven't done any in the USA since the 1980's and I don't smoke cigarettes either. I would be laid out on the floor after 20 minutes wi...

That looked like fun.

I did Queens Day at various multiples of 10 in my age but haven't been in quite awhile. Maybe I should go at the next 0 year, see how it's changed if at all.

The movies did make me want to be there yet again.

I never had any problems smoking at the former Cok City and then after at it's new name Ramada City Centre. Well I shouldn't say never, once some new desk person told me I couldn't so I informed him that I would buy said hotel and fire him (this was back in Cok City days) and stalked away. Amusingly...

Oh thanks. I like all the different Amsterdam discussions on here, also because sometimes people mention a place I've never heard of haha. My friend occupied a house in the Hague last week which went really well. The police thought he and his friends were SO poor, they brought them blankets and jum...

I have fond memories of my summer as a "working"
guy in Amsterdam. Though I worked in a brothel that
catered mostly to men, we did get women who would
call for deliveries.

Was very interesting and lucrative too.

I can relate to the shoe problems.

What I do is a week before I leave I buy a nice
pair of leather upper, rubber soled shoes with a
totally flat sole. Wear them for that week to make
sure they are broken in and won't irritate my feet.

Great report

From your description of the shave, I think you
got off cheaply. It sounds like you had a far, far
better experience with that than people do with
their red light women.

Made me want to rush out and get a shave too!

mm did u like the chocomel better cold or warm? I never actually saw it offered warm. Only had the cold. Personally I think Chocomel is horrible. It reminds me of a Yoohoo gone bad. I like to order hot chocolate in coffeeshops during my winter trips but I always make sure how they make it before I ...

Actually I would be interested too in reading about things other than the coffeeshops. I go to enough of those while I"m there, what I would like to find are places where I can pick up some of my favorite collectibles. Like banks. You know, piggy banks? I collect all kinds of coin banks, I have...

I'd like to see the report too.

Maybe do what I do when I'm writing up my blog.

I do it in Notepad, then when I get on to the forums
I can just copy and paste it in to whatever format
they have.

Much less annoyance then when their system decides
to burp when you hit Enter.

chocolata

Hi there my friend. I don't think you have too much of a problem with short term memory,not considering all the detail you put into your trip reports. I really enjoyed the reports. As for the space cake/bon bons at Chocolata,the last trip I ate 1 (one!) bon bon and was really loopy for about 3 hours...

Hmm well I will await the rest of the story then,as it unfolds. I'll save all wishes for different outcomes until I see all the information though. Too bad I had to run the last time,at least now I'll be there all of June,July and maybe August too. I wonder how long I have to be out of the Netherlan...

next time

If we do manage to be in the Dam again,at the same time,I'll have to do a wander about with you. It sounds like fun,even though I would probably just try a nice prerolled joint at each of the places. You are going to be back over there in June and July? I have an apartment reserved from Jun 15th thr...

Snow,bah!

I was there when it was snowing. The Thursday before that,it snowed a total of what? 2cm max? It was enough that the plane I was on (for 7 stinking hours!) couldn't get out of A'dam. So I spent the weekend,it did snow all day long Saturday and was cold but that evening,the temps rose and it was nice...

21 days and I remember some of it

Hi there. I just returned from a nice long trip to A'dam. Was slightly longer than I had anticipated but that will all be explained later. This trip I was more interested in going to various coffeeshops than doing the usual touristy type stuff,I have been to the city at least a dozen times and,since...
