    • Football tickets

      by Giggsy112016 Online Now Sep 1, 2016 at 1:52 AM

      Looking for Football tickets. Would like to see Ajax, PSV or Feyenoord play while in the Netherlands. Will be in Amsterdam for 16 days starting next Friday. I am particularly looking for 2 tickets for Feyenoord vs Manchester United on September 15th or PSV vs Feyenoord on September 18th. So if anyone knows how I can go about purchasing tickets for when I am in Amsterdam that would be great.

      I will be in Belgium and the Netherlands for 2.5 weeks. All I'd like to be able to do is text travelling companions (also Canadians) in the event that we get separated. A travel pass for CAD 60 to my Bell Mobility plan would give unlimited calling and texting for a month. I found this: telestial.com/international-... and am wondering if it is a viable option.

    • How can I work as fitness trainer in Amsterdam?

      by YMaK Online Now Sep 16, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      I'm an young Italian girl (30 years old) who has a passionate personal involvement in fitness classes in particular Total body, G.A.G. and H.I.I.T.
      I have just returned from a luxury resort in Zanzibar where I worked as fitness trainer for 3 months. All of my experience comes from my work in the field so I never had time to do a course to obtain a valid faster certificate to teach in your country. But I am very interested to do it.

      I will travel very soon in Europe, in particular in Amsterdam. Can someone help me with some information?

      1) Is it necessary a Degree in Sport sciences?
      2) What kind of certificate I have to bring? How can I do that?

      I didn't live yet in Amsterdam but I really hope it’s going to be my next stop and I want to live there for a while.
      I'm grateful if you can help me with these information.
      Thanks to all!!

      I am coming to Amsterdam for 5 days and will be using the tram maybe only once or twice a day (maybe not even) is it better to use single use tickets or what is the best place to go.

      Also where do I buy these single use tickets if I am getting on a tram from prinsegracht to central station because there is no station in prinsegracht I don't think.

    • Remembrance Day and Liberation Day - for tourists

      by ramot418 Online Now Apr 17, 2016 at 8:50 PM

      I will be in Amsterdam on May 4th and 5th, and was wondering what a tourist should do on those days. So I looked things up and came to the following conclusions - and questions:

      May 4th - Remembrance Day:
      The place to be (or try to be, due to the crowds!) is the main memorial ceremony at 20:00. There isn't much else for the tourist. Another couple of things I noticed:
      (1) The "Silent March" led by the mayor of Amsterdam, from Dam Square (17:45) to Museumplein.
      (2) Open Jewish houses, where stories are related about the war period. However, it isn't clear to me whether this is only in Dutch or there are some locations in which the stories are told in English. If there are stories in English, where do you suggest I go?

      May 5th - Liberation Day:
      The general impression I get is to just walk around the center of town (from what time?) and one will 'bump into' all sorts of festivities. Should I concentrate on a specific area?
      And, of course, the (free) Amstel concert at 21:00. Exactly where along the Amstel will it be? In the Magere Brug area only? Or all along the river?

      Thanks.
