    Just wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to go Amsterdam on a seriously tight budget? Im thinking of going for like 2 nights.

    Ive never been over there, just never had the time, but now i got a new job thats pretty flexible, i'd like to make the trip. Im looking to do it soon, maybe beginning of feb.

    How much you reckon a 3 day trip'll cost per person if we budget?

    Cheeersssss

    Should be able to get return flights for about £60/80, stay in a hostel or cheap hotel at £20pn then whatever you need to spend, just fly out there and im sure the rest will happen.

    Some of the best 'museums' you can go to is the Bols museum. It's on of those flavour things, where you have to taste or smell something and guess what it is. Sometimes really hard for the simplest things. Best part is that when that's over you come into the bar, where they flair mix you cocktails. There's a room where you can throw some (plastic) bottles yourself too. There's a screen on which you see yourself, and where they explain how to throw it. Afterwards, you can have the video sent to your e-mailadress too i believe.

    All about the cocktails though, yum!

    You will need more than you think, well we all did anyway. I went in October and it was expensive for things like drinks and food. Nice fry up in the morning was like 9-10 euro which is about £9 with the exchange rates.

    To be perfectly honest, i dont think I would go back. I really enjoyed it, had a great time and you've gotta try it out once, but smoking weed all day, every day is a laugh and that but it gets boring. You dont remember much of the time over there and it goes really quickly and spend too much money! Some of the weed is nice, some is shite. Rather go for a holiday in the sun to be honest.

    But try it out man, gotta be done.

    I'M GOING A WEEK TODAY!! Tip is, book it in advance. That way, it staggers how much you pay out in one go. But I reckon the whole thing will probs cost me about £200 :)
    I can't wait. Logical Progression is going to be ridiculous.

    amsterdam isnt cheap. basically. unless you know someone here that can show you the ropes and you can crash on their couch etc. if youre going to hostel or hotel be prepared to pay through your nose or teeth or i cant seem to remember right now

    damn shame. word to the fucking wise mate, do not touch mdma or pills or any of its derivatives. its a silly silly drug that makes silly people even sillier. aaaaaaaaaand ive just about had it with silly people. and their relatives. if you dont watch out, theyll make you silly and well all be a bunch of silly cunts in the end. get nothing done, fuck up every kind of bizness and ruin christmas. be prepared my friend, the great serious is coming and it will eat you alive should you display even the slightest of tendencies towards silliness. the great serious will take place 2012, or possibly next friday when my mate plays this squat club, 3 squid on the door and all the k you can imagine.

    I’m not sure if you’re trying to have a joke (if so, I’m struggling to find the punchline) but if someone told you this, don’t be so gullible mate……..you cant travel with 1 day left on your passport
