    Well off to Amsterdam next week and...

    Am i excited ever!!!! It's my first vacation in a long time - too long if you ask me - almost 2 years!

    People keep raving about the DAM so decided to go there with my girl. Have to trust my employees to handle things now and just chill out completely for a week.

    Any other seasoned amsterdamers on here to give any advice on what to do and see in this fabulous city?

    Can't hardly wait...

    Watch out for the aggresive tramps and street drug dealers with knifes. I did go in Feburary a few years ago (one day return cruise), so its probably much better policed in the Summer. A scary experience.

    Watch out for pick pockets. I was followed a few times. I took them on a tour of the city.

    Check out the street urinals! Interesting.

    If your into history and such you can check out Ann Francks house - it is pretty emotional.

    Heh, yeah I researched a lot on the amsterdam forums and everyone says just learn to say NO in dutch Nay lol. That, they say, should keep away most of the tramps and peddlers. Gonna take a money belt to safe guard from pickpockets.

    If I were single I'd probably move to Amsterdam and open a seed & weed shop

    I do, I keep it to the utmost minimum though. I know I will spend about 2 days of the holiday where I will just log on for half an hour to keep things sorted. It just keeps my mind at rest.
