    • Travelling alone , looking for companion

      Amsterdam Jul 31, 2015 at 3:06 AM

      Hey, I am on business trip and while returning will be in Amsterdam Sep 18-20 (check out) ; well this will be my personal trip and not paid by company:) .
      I was looking for someone who are travelling to join so that we can afford good place to stay at least and share the accommodation expense. I have seen some places on line but the cost is high, hence if someone is travelling on those dates we can get together and at least stay in better hotel near central station or centre of city. Looking forward for a companion. I understand the world is not that sweet however I am ok to share personal details and expect same if able to find someone.

      Thanks. Jks

      Copenhagen snuff/smokeless tobacco/dipping/chewing tobacco

      Amsterdam Aug 7, 2015 at 12:04 PM

      Does anyone have experience bringing Copenhagen (or similar) smokeless tobacco through customs in Amsterdam? From what I have researched we are allowed 200 cigarettes OR 250 grams of "tobacco", and there will be a 147.7% tax on anything over the "250 grams tobacco" (cigarette overages are less). I think the intent is pipe or hookah, not dipping tobacco, but I’m going with "not rolled". I am also wondering if we should empty all those cans into a baggie or see if we can get the smoke shop here to put it in a labeled container. Either way we will get in the "red" line at customs and declare the overage, since no way our combined allotment will last him a month.

      Hotels in Amsterdam

      Amsterdam Aug 17, 2015 at 7:24 PM

      Have been looking online at hotels in Amsterdam for mid September for 3-4 nights. Is seems to me that if you don't book a hotel out side the city they are ridiculously expensive, at least for my wallet. Are the surrounding towns within a short distance to downtown Amsterdam. We would like to pay around 200$ Canadian so that would be around 150 Euros.
      Any suggestions for hotels.

      Hi, my wife and I are going to Paris in early September and after a few days would like to go to Amsterdam and Brussels. Our plan is to take a train directly from Paris to Amsterdam and then make our way back to Brussels before flying back to Canada. My question is this is it better for us to get some sort of rail pass for a week or two or just pay as we go? We don't have any set agenda but would like to see several towns and cities along the way from Amsterdam to Brussels.

      Hi,

      Mijn ouders gaan op zondag 20 November met een bus naar de Verzamelaarsbeurs in Utrecht.

      Een aantal van de echtgenotes die meegaan, zijn niet zo erg geinteresseerd in die beurs, en die zouden liever in het centrum gaan wandelen (winkelen ?).

      Weet er iemand of er op zondag ook winkels open zijn in Utrecht?

      Dan kunnen we dit alvast meegeven met de dames, en kunnen ze hun verwachtingspatroon daar een beetje op instellen

      I was in Utrecht 2 weeks ago. Whenever I go to the Netherlands I shop in a store called DIDI. While walking through the Utrecht train station, I spotted a DIDI Outlet Store! I was thrilled to find it and went in. I found out I had 5 minutes till the store closed and with my husband we picked out as much as I could try on in that time.

      I am wondering if I could call the store and get them to send some stuff to the USA for me? Do you think it's a long shot and how can I get the email or any contact information for the store? Hmmm ....

I also read about the zandpond houseboats. I would like to visit this area but I wonder is it sage area to travel? I am not interested in ladies but just do not want to find any trouble. I am sensible person who can avoid all trouble. Is this far from the Tivoli or central station?
