I'm totally overwhelmed by
-- the city, people who live there, and the tourists. Everything is great -- they're tolerant and there's no crime. In Amsterdam I felt safe like nowhere else in the world! Amsterdam has everything -- culture, history, museums, all kinds of restaurants, nightlife, and coffee shops; the Red Light District was a mind opener. I think that the rest of the world and all the big cities could look up to this city. And there is a special thing that I like -- the buildings in the city center area are built on three or four floors, so you don't feel small in the big city, and all the big buildings and business/shopping centers are outside this historic and touristic area. I'm looking forward to traveling there again soon, but this time maybe for a month! I just love Amsterdam!
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.
The greatest thing about
, well one of the greatest things, is that everything is so laid back. People aren't up in arms about anything. You can sit at 10 AM and have an Amstel Light at the cafe in Vondelpark and no one thinks poorly of you. The city is beautiful, outside the red light district, by day with fabulous street markets. So many markets and so much cheap shopping - the fruit stands are amazing! Then at night, the city comes alive in different ways. Amsterdam is quite diverse; go shopping, go to the beach, go to the coffee shops, do it all. It is an experience one will NEVER forget!
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.
The best thing about
(that isn't inhaled) are all the cheap falafel places. Look for one with a bar that lets you add your own toppings.
! What's not to love? Me and my best friend traveled for a month around Europe and Amsterdamwas one of our favorite places! First, go to the INTERNET CAFE or the BULLDOG next to BOOM CHICAGO if you stay at VONDELPARK. You can drink and smoke and play some pool. The music is off the hook and if you decide to shroom...there are incredible pictures coming right out of the wall!!! You also HAVE to get the cone fries!! They are soooo good! Nothing like em'. For sure you have to go to MULIN ROUGE or a live sex show! You have to totally experience the life! You should also bring some cash to buy the best weed in the world! About 13 euro well get you high! Bikes are everywhere...so travel that way or do what the locals do...foot it. Oh, and mind the fashion there. You can get some cute fashion ideas, or don'ts! Oh, and there are not too many R&B type clubs. But, the music is a great mix. You hear the sh*t that you don't hear in the States. Oh, and go to the coffee…
