This small city is really really beautiful! Enjoy walking through the old streets and take a sit in the Grote Market, the central square of
-- full of life during the day and with some pubs and street musicians at night. It's peaceful, but not boring!
many times -- great place.
Word of warning in and around
, be aware of the many vagrants, drug dealers etc. that hang around mainly the Red Light district and the main drag in from the railway station (Damrak) if they approach you or bump into you just walk away as they may accuse you of banging into them and making them drop their drugs, which you will be asked to pay for in a polite way, well, polite for a drug dealer anyway.
I have been thinking about moving to
. I have never been there but I figure you only live once. The whole city stands for everything I have based my life on -- sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll.
is a lovely place. Everyone here travels around on bikes because the land is so flat, so be careful to look out for bikes when crossing the road! Book accommodations in the city well in advance and haggle with the people on the door of Madame Toussauds if you go there because they will drop their prices willingly!
Great place! The coffeshops are amazing. For the older hippies try Dutch Flowers. I smoked with two seventy-year-old sailors and heard some great stories. (The hash and weed -- fantastic!). The Van Gogh museum and Rijks museum are must-sees. A ferry to the town of Markin will let you enjoy a small Dutch town that if you wander far enough, you can see the classic windmills. When you first dock you are spilled out into a very touristy part but keep exploring into the town and you will see farmland and windmills. The Dutch are very friendly open laid back. The U.S. could learn a lot from them. If you haven't been to
, regardless of age, go!
