Do you know that those cheapskates KLM don't offer any inflight grub anymore? All I got from Edinburgh - Denmark-AMS was a Tuc biscuit!!! Fly them to NYC then to Amsterdam - they will feed you seven times each way! Odd. I've just come back from Hamburg via AMS with KLM. On the Hamburg-AMS trip we w...

July Trip Report

Whilst I've gone here for years and loved the nosh, the total ignorance of the staff stunned the missus &am...

Cafe de Tap....no more!!!

Just back from a very short two-day jaunt. Crammed in the usual, but was disappointed to find, upon arrival there, that my favourite, scruffy wee boozer - the Cafe de Tap on Prisengracht - has closed down!! It did have a lot of broken flagstones on the floor when I was there back in June, so maybe i...

Dogbreath


Jan Luyken, on street of same name. Nothing was nicked. I would test the safe at least twice when locking it, and was always straight sober when I did.

Mint & Fresh in A'dam !

Just back from a last minute, four-day jaunt to the 'Dam. Paid WAAAY too much for our room at our usual hotel, but we were happy enough, until we found the safe mysteriously open one morning! Not making any accusations, but had to cancel the card that was in there, just to be on the 'safe' side. :-)...

Re: Continental Hotel (Damrak) - Rodent Ridden Hellhole.

Just to warn you all - I stayed here in February and had a severe mouse infestation in my room. I woke up from a white widow-induced coma to find my bin rustling, and when I turned on the light about 5 mice ran out of the bin! They eventually moved me to another room which also had at least one of ...

Thanks, Hamlet. I admire your convictions.

I don't know how prevalent testing is here in the UK, but there is NO WAY I would subject myself to shit like that.

Re: EUROPE.

" Personally, no job is worth pissing in a cup, but I am one of the most extreme exceptions, and you do not want to be like me, I assure you.
