Re: Amsterdam May 2017

What, did St Patrick get them out? No, the old snake rustler didn't bother with them. If anything, the myths say he turned a group of unbelievers into werewolves for howling derisively at him when he attempted to preach at them (yet another reason to give missionaries short shrift). The poor wolves...

Ah, a pity! No idea how I missed it for so long - I'm sure I must have walked along that street a thousand times.

I've never hear of Cogship before, UKBL. Is it a new one?

Re: Brown Bars

Just one? Hmmm. Every time I visit I dash back and forth between Gollem, Arendsnest and De Pilsener Club. Before they "upgraded" it, I used to really enjoy the tasting room out in Brouwerij het IJ.

Re: Cesky Krumlov?

I'd like to have more than a day, but that's it on this go round... the castle with the bears sounds pretty cool... we have a place with a balcony overlooking the river, which is pretty scenic... The castle is great, but I found the bears surroundings a bit medieval. Your place with the balcony sou...

Re: Cesky Krumlov?

I've been there a few times, and found it lovely each time. You'll find more to explore there than can be covered in a day, which is better than the reverse. There's a good selection of places to go for grub. I have fond memories of http://www.cikanskajizba.cz

The Dude, Bluntman and CityLiver! CityLiver was ace! ... You only had to give him a tiny little poke and he'd be ranting (in pink) for days! Peace, Des. Bluntman wasn't the worst was he? I dimly recall a number of failed attempts to rally his mates in Wales for a trip, and associated posts here abo...

I can't believe you've left out the insane asshole that kept going on about c0ckr0aches and Shakespeare. He was in need of medical intervention.

I hope to play St. Andrews, potentially in 2007 as well with my friends. Right now, it is a toss up between Scotland and Ireland. Tough call. You could always dodge the issue, and go to both - it doesn't take long or cost much to get to one from the other, either by ferry or air. Budget about EUR 1...

Re: My first report.

I'm not a newcomer to narcotics (of various kinds). I just can't get exited about dope. It's fine once in a while, but extended use creates a hungry bore, not a liberated mind. Besides, it's a hippy drug. Yeah, I figured I was at risk of lecturing Granny on the art of egg sucking - apologies. To ea...

Re: My first report.

Sunday: got pissed. Smoked some dope. Fell asleep - I dunno what you stoners see in it, I really don't. Woke up. Got pissed. Monday... oh, you get the idea. Try rearranging the order a little bit. In particular, as you're fond of the beer, try mingling the two. Smoking is reknowned for not going do...

Re: Rocco's report

I am posting this for Rocco as the dumb ass forgot his code! For no good reason, I read this series of trip reports in reverse order. It wasn't until I got to the first in the series, that I figured out what was up. Until then, I had begun to believe that BOhannan had a multiple personality disorder!

Re: Trip Report, Day 3, Part 4

It was close to 1:00AM as we exited De Kuil. The pastry shop was beginning to close down… I was actually surprised to see it still open at that late hour, but since this was my first time in Amsterdam during June with all the tourists around, I imagine staying open late is probably very lucrative f...
