Elvis




Man, 420 is the model of Consistency. It's had the maroc caramello and red maroc for at least a year and a half. You made me wish that I had bought the caramello.
I spent a few days in Amsterdam last week, staying at Hotel My Home along Haarlemmerstraat. Staying with two friends in a 3 person room I was impressed with what we got for the price. You can't expect much for 30E pppn but although the hotel was basic it was clean, safe, in a great location and very smoker firendly (smoking in lounge and rooms ok, bongs/pipes/papers to use, free pool, internet and a tasty free breakfast).

It was about 100 yards along from Pink floyd so naturally it was our first stop after grinder/papers etc shopping.

Pink Floyd - 1g Mothers Finest
Hadn't been to PF on my last two visits and immediately regretted it. Great shop, we had the top floor to ourselves so we took up residence on the sofas overlooking Haarlemmerstraat. Good first smoke of the trip, not too strong and a nice uplifting high.

Greenhouse Centrum - 1g Super Silver Haze
Went for a walk around the Centrum and RLD then found ourselves in GH. Heard so much about SSH and wasn't dissapointed. A much stronger high gave a great buzz for a while then mellowed nicely.

SSH - http://img248.imageshack.us/img248/1596/dsc00351gq7.jpg

Siberie -
Finished off the SSH, Nice open plan shop with plenty of seats and a few tables for bigger groups. A great selection of teas although i stuck with my staple smoking diet of hot chocolate.

We then headed (on foot) to the Rijksmuseum, like the VG museum it hasn't got the biggest collection but impressive nonetheless.

Grey Area - 1g kushage
Predictably was just a grab and go as the only table was taken. Didn't have any Chocoloupe at the time so went for the kushage. The kushage looked a very unnatural, almost luminous, green colour. Although it smelt good and smoked well so I can't complain.

Route 66 -
Can't remember too much about the shop be honest, probably something to do with the kushage knocking my socks off. I wouldn't describe it as couchlock but I was pretty stoned and not wanting to go anywhere for a while.

Rokerij (Singel)- 1g Laughing Buddha
Been one of my favourite shops since my first visit, a good menu, friendly staff, a nice atmosphere and sometimes the chance to sit out front and watch over the Singel. The buddha was a great smoke, took a while to take effect but was a very strong cerebral buzz when it did.

We then headed back to the hotel to get ourselves sorted for the evening.It's amazing what a cold shower and half an hour without a spliff can do!

We then headed back towards the Damrak, stopping for delicious pizza at a surprisingly non-touristy italian restaurant along Warmdestraat.
We then we went for a drink at Stone's Cafe to watch the end of the football that evening.

De Kuil/420 - 1g Maroc Caramello, 1g Maroc Red
Decided to go for some hashes for the evening, first off was the Caramello, tasted so smooth and gave a strong body buzz. We were sat at a small table at the far end of the bar and a group of dutch friends came in telling their foreign visitors this was 'real amsterdam'. They took the big table next to us and took great interest in watching what we were up. A few eyebrows were raised when I returned from the bar with my first try of a volcano vaporiser. Although I still prefer smoking spliffs I enjoyed the vapo and the buddha was top notch again.

Caramello - http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/4256/dsc00375ce0.jpg

My first Vapo filling up - http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/6020/dsc00353yy3.jpg

Time to head back to HQ for the night and we took a wander home via the RLD which is always an interesting experience.

Back at the hotel we smoked the Maroc Red, another smooth smoke but not on par with the caramello in my eyes. Off to bed and ready for much of the same tomorrow....
great report bro . i'll be off on the 31.3. this will be the frist time i'm gonna take notes . i like the way u ve takenpic of the bud , i love SSH . got some Kushage from Abrax (sorry for spelling ) very nice .


Hate coming back home .
the pics were only taken on my phone so aren't great quality, I had intended to take half decent budshots with my camera back at the hotel but most got smoked before then!

I never feel too comfortable taking photo's in coffeeshops, I know I didn't like it upstairs in abraxas when an group of american friends were filming everything and narrating as they went along.
did u hear any news on which coffeshops would stop serving alcohol . i love the feeling of having a jay and cold beer .
Nice report bungle4uk!

Those pics ain't all that bad either, especially for a camera phone.

Thanks for the details... Sounds like you had a smokin' good time!

In reference to videos and pics in Coffeeshops. Personally, I love to have footage and pics to look back on and have shot both in CS's in the past. Key factor is being respectful of other patrons while doing it.

IMO, you shouldn't feel bad at all about takin' pics of your buds. The ones you did manage are much appreciated.
I think I'll be a bit bolder with the telephoto on my next visit. I have no problems with people taking pics/filming as it was something i attempted. It was more the overbearingness of a stranger pointing a lens in our face asking where we're from and if we're enjoying it.

I'll be taking my digital and will hopefully get some menu shots as well as bud shots in the CS's....


Days 2 and 3 of the report to come soon
Woke up to a nice free breakfast at the hotel of scambled eggs, cheese and toast. We headed into the centrum after breakfast, stopping off in pink floyd for another 1g of Mothers Finest.

Old Church
I'd seen Old Church before but been put off by the neon lights and look of the outside so had never ventured in. After hearing about the smoking spot at the upstairs windows we gave it a go. Got our drinks and found the upstairs empty so got a window table and opened the windows wide. A nice spring day, people watching in the RLD with a joint of Mother's Finest....day 2 had started well.

The view from Old Church - http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/7219/dsc00358bc4.jpg

We took a walk down to the Van Gogh museum, as good as my first visit there, amazing how much you can miss first time. We stopped for lunch and a beer in the Leidseplein then went towards Dam Square.

Abraxas - Space Shake
Loved the hash milkshakes last time, nice again but they don't put the hash in the blender now, just give you it to mix in which is half as effective.

Twede Kamer - 1g NYC Diesel
Although I liked the vibe in 2e we didn't stay as it was quite busy, seemed to be an older, more proffessional crowd than most of the CS's, still friendly though.

De Kuil/420 - 1g Nevill's Haze
One of my highlights; Spent a few hours in here trying some European beers and the Diesel and Nevilles Haze. I've had NYC Diesel before but never with such a great taste. Probably the tastiest weed I've ever smoked, nice effect but the tast alone made it great for me. I'd heard good things about the Nevill's Haze and wasn't dissapointed, gave a great hazy high, both made sure I was laughing all the way back to the hotel.

All got sorted for the evening again and ventured out in search of food, ended up in a steak house which was dissappointing all round; poor food, poor service - not to be revisited.

Kadinsky
Tiny coffeeshop that we visited to watch some football, stayed for an hour and finished the nevills haze. One young lad next to us stumbled out the shop and the bartender was having a joke to his friend about the state he was in....he was going to sleep well that night!

Rokerij - 1g Rokerij Haze
A nice smooth, not too strong sativa in the familiar comfortable surroundings of Rokerij Singel.

Another great day in the dam, already starting to think about booking my next trip....day 3 to follow
Enjoyed the read. Looking forward to day 3.
Our last full day in the dam and it was time to step it up, there were still plenty of CS's to visit and plenty of strains to try, no museums for us today!

Amnesia - 1g Honey Bee
Never been before but a great little CS. Set on one floor it has about 10 tables of various sizes, nice decor and run by two friendly women. Smoked the Honey Bee whilst playing a game of chess (loads of games available to use there, backgammon, chess etc) and looking out onto the Herengracht. Honey Bee was a nice giving a sweet tasting strong sativa high.

Katsu - 1g Citral
I had planned on trying my first ice in the Crystal Clear but they didn't have any in so we opted for 1g of Citral. Still pretty new to hash (especially good quality hash) and was very impressed with the Citral. A fantastic taste giving such a smooth smoke and high, was my friends favourite smoke of the trip.

Stix - 1g Temple Ball
Having not managed to make it to the WW's in Haarlem we headed to Stix to get our hands on some Temple Ball, and we weren't dissapointed. The shop was a bit small for my liking, and seemingly a bit more upmarket than most coffeeshops. Had an interesting conversation with a german living in Amsterdam. Dressed in coloured robes and face paint, smoking a pipe he started to talk to me about Blair/Bush then proceeded into an inaudible rant shouting about aliens and burning people alive. I should've asked what he was smoking!

Hunters - 1g MK Ultra
What a menu, what a high! I'd visited hunter's ona previous trip but only remembered it aas the scooby doo shop and nothing more. Has a great menu and I was surprised to see some MK Ultra on it, so immediately bought a gram. One of the strongest Sativa's I've smoked with a deep heady buzz.

Resin - 1g HP 13
Nice decor (higher quality than most CS's, similar to stix) although both of these shops were down the bottom of my list. Couldn't beleive the price of some of the ice hashes (70E per G for unreal Resin hash!). The service was pretty poor as after finding our choices to be out of stock the bud tender almost assumed we'd try their most expensive weed HP 13. We did, and it was a pretty strong smoke (similar to the Kushage from GA it looked very unnatural bright green) but not amazing.

Jungle
I know very little about this shop, its name was Dutch with the word Jungle underneath. didn't buy anything to smoke but they had a raised section at the back with several sofas and sky sports but kept it's cosy CS atmospehere. England were making a mess of the cricket so we didn't stay for long

Siberie
My friend, a self confessed 'tea monster' wanted to head back to Siberie quickly to sample another flavour of tea. Finished off the MK Ultra then headed into the Centrum for food (same pizza as the first night) then to Old Church.

Old Church -
As it was peak time (about 8/9 o clock) we didn't expect to get a seat upstair, let alone the big window seats, but we did. Gret spot to sit and people watch for an hour, even better at night than on the previous morning.

Pink Floyd - 1g Umma Gumma
What a taste, I couldn't beleive the sweet taste given by just one hit off an Umma Gumma spliff. Gave a nice relaxed buzz as well, making it one of my all time favourite smokes. We took up residence in the middle floor around the big table and were joined by a seemingly never ending group of around 20 spanish students.

Off to bed on our last night in Amsterdam, we weren't flying until 5PM the following day so would still have a few hours toking the next day.
Thumbs up for a very comprehensive trip report. It made great reading. Y'know, i dont know how many times ive walked past Pink Floyd over the years and never bothered calling in. What a fool for missing out on the the Umma Gumma !
With our flight home leaving at 4.45pm we checked out of the hotel quite early (9.30ish) and were grateful for having each brought a bag small enough to easily carry round with us.

Rokerij Singel - 1g Silver Pearl
First smoke of the day was the silver pearl, one of my favourite's from my previous trip. I love the look of it, perhaps a little dry but very firm, crystal covered buds. Gave a very visual, almost trippy high.

Abraxas - Apple Jack
Had another milkshake (bannana this time) but without the hash, and had some very potent smelling apple jack. Enjoyed the smoke but had a big group of americans trying to ask us questions about our trip with a camorder pointed at us, not ideal coffeeshop etiquette if you ask me.

Homegrown Fantasy - 2g White Widow, 2g Shiva
Always feel this CS is a bit too patio furniture-ey for my liking, we made the most of their cheap WW and Shiva, stayed for a quick one then moved on.

Rokerij Singel - 2g Rokerij Haze, 1g Lavender
Back again! Just had time for a quick grab and go then off to PF.

Pink Floyd - 1g Umma Gumma
Our final coffeeshop of the trip, we grabbed our drinks and Umma Gumma then found the upstairs empty again so took the sofas. It was nice to end the trip exactly where we'd started it. Had a spliff of the Rokerij Haze and popped the rest into a Dora the Explorer DVD case (free with a childrens magazine - the cheapest DVD i could find!). Sealed the envelope and crossed my fingers.

Off to Central Station where I posted my parcel and jumped on the train to the airport.

All in all a great trip - the only things on my pre trip wish list I didn't manage were doing Salvia and making it to Haarlem....both are on the list for next time.

Favourite Coffeeshop - Pink Floyd just shaves it over Rokerij Singel. Had never been to PF before and loved it. 3 distinctly different floors (1-several small tables, bar stools; 2- good for larger groups, one huge table and plenty of seating; 3 - small tables for couples or small groups, 2 omfy sofas) internet access, good location, small but high quality menu

Favourite Weed - Difficult to call, for taste and smell it's the NYC Diesel from Twede Kamer, for effect its the Nevills Haze from De Kuil/420.

Favourite Hash - Umma Gumma for taste, and effect. Really enjoyed all the hashes smoked on this trip, especially the Temple Ball from Stix and Citral from Katsu

I'm heading back in a fortnight to do all that I didn't manage to do this time, I genuinely seemyself frequenting Mokum at least twice a year for years to come....




Day 8 - The postman brought me a treat this morning!! No smell proofing, no subtle labelling but it made it, I guess I should count myself lucky
Great trip report! Thanks for taking the time to put it up here and get me all ready to head over there again, whenever that may be.
i bet Dora the Explorer got a special place in ur heart now lol .

Cant wait to try the Umma Gumma ! and the nevils haze .

UK Bag Lady,

I don't trust a frequent Dam poster who doesn't smoke weed.
Luk nijholt!! i remember him,like hans hillhaus/theo snelders & that ivo den beimen.
Helpmaboab, this is gittin' oot o' haund. Translation for our English friends: By jove, this is rather ridiculous.

Nijholt, is that a Motherwell strip. Guys, I will certainly post a reply on my return (3 weeks to go). I'm looking forward to it and your postings have been great. Enjoy Edinburgh, my part of Scotland.
Hi guys. I am going to Amsterdam with my wife for my 50th birthday. Not looking for RLD or joints but I hear it's a beautiful place? I like a beer or ten though.
It most certainly is a beautiful place. And the beers not bad either!

Will this be a first visit for either of you? mr*bag*lady took me there for my 50th a few years ago ; well he offered me the choice of destination and there was no choice to make really, it was always going to be Mokum!

If you want any tips or recommendations please ask

:-)
Big Sandy,

A question first: How much traveling have you done? Where?
Thanks UKBL and ZZ. It is the first time for both of us. really looking forward to it. Haven't travelled to too many cities, usually go to the sand, sea and sangria but I'm fed up with that. Been to Rome and Prague though.
Then you're in for a treat but then I am slightly biased! Actually I'm doing it in reverse; I'm making a first trip to Prague in September.

There are so many things to do and see in Mokum. The big museums if you're into art. Walking the canals is a favourite pastime. If Mrs Sandy likes shopping theres are lots of markets and tiny shops, especially in the Jordaan and the Nine Streets area of the city.

Take a look at for some more ideas if you like

Happy planning!

:-)
If you're into beer, check out this site:

http://www.xs4all.nl/~patto1ro/pubs.htm

Great guide to all the best pubs in amsterdam. Takes you off the beaten track into some more local haunts. As uk bag lady said the jordaan great for shopping. But its also great for pubs. Just walk around and you'll find fantastic neighbourhood bars on almost every corner.
Just walking around the canals and through the city is great. When are you going (the BIG day - congratulations!)? Hopefully the weather will be decent enough to allow you to spend most of the time outdoors. Walk around the jordaan area and duck into any of the wonderful brown cafes around the Ann Frank House. Popular favorites include De Prins (very nice), Cafe Smalle and Cafe Hoppe. Many others. Look for big Heineken signs. Sit in the outdoor area of Cafe Luxembourg on the Spui and people watch. Keep walking to the Leidseplein area. Take a break anywhere that suits your fancy. Then walk to the Museumplein area, stopping at either the Rijksmuseum or van Gogh museum. For others: Is the Rijks. still being renovated??? Anyway, make your way to the Concertgebouw and try to catch a concert. It's a world-famous concert hall. Although you say you don't want to do any RLD activities, it's still interesting and safe, and even funny, to walk through some of these areas during the daytime.

While I don't know what cuisine you like, I highly recommend an Indonesian restaurant which, I believe is on Spuistreet, called Kantjil en Tiger (not far from the Spui area).

As you can tell, Amsterdam is so nice I wish I was there right now!!

Just curious: Is there a medical reason why you can't just try a little, little joint?? I'm not trying to lecture or convert you or anything, but if you're just afraid like many people who grew up with "reefer madness" propaganda," I, as well as many on this board, can tell you that there is NO risk involved, and drinking a glass of lemonade is probably worse for your health, with a greater chance of addiction (which doesn't exist at all with weed). Again, just curious - give it a shot! Interestingly enough, weed is actually medically beneficial for most and happens to be the only thing which "medically" helps many ailments, from typical aches and pains, to glaucoma, etc...

Sorry, it always pains me when I read that someone is going to the Dam, but is not going to even TRY a little weed. Ok, I'll stop. If you still don't want to try, at least sit in a coffeeshop and enjoy the atmosphere (everyone will be VERY friendly). Contrary to popular belief, you CANNOT get high on the second-hand smoke of weed. A previous poster explained why in a prior thread - I can't remember the exact reason, but it is true.

Reminiscing about the Dam on a beautiful Friday afternoon.

Big Sandy: Have the trip of your life! You deserve it after 1/2 a century in the rat race on this planet.

Love and Peace
You guys have been great. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Really looking forward to it now. ZZ no reason pal, just prefer the beer as my waistline will testify. I will visit the RLD 'cos it's part of the holiday. Try to take in a jazz session. Not really interested in jazz as such but my brother said there were some good gigs.
Big Sandy- It would be great if you could post a report of your trip when you get back. Even if you're a first timer, there's a decent chance you could discover something which most of us don't know about.
For all first timers I recommend S G Collins'

.

Enjoy your trip Big Sandy!

You appear to be a seasoned traveller. Get ready for a treat!

Amsterdam is a flavor. Savor it as you would a new beer, one you've never had before and are very likely to belly back up for a second, third, and fourth round. Consider yourself lucky if you stop there. You may never want to drink Budweiser again!

Then when you get back, perhaps you can explain to us why we all like the place so much! ;)
Yes its a coll laid back city m8!! no1 is pushing & shoving like you get here during rush hour.
Then you're in for a treat but then I am slightly biased! Actually I'm doing it in reverse; I'm making a first trip to Prague in September.

Wow, I'm not sure I could say exactly! My first time was in 1987 so you could say it's my anniversary this year. Most years since then.

I'm looking forward to discovering two new cities this year: Prague and Edinburgh

UK Bag Lady,

I don't trust a frequent Dam poster who doesn't smoke weed.

Lol. That's ok. But even a smoker must surely have to admit that there is more to the city than the weed. No ?

Why thank you kind sir, yes it is. As is almost identical site

I'll check out those links too, Kingdoc, seeing me and my friend were supposed to go to Edinburgh in April but we've postponed our trip to August.

Big Sandy - have a great time in Amsterdam, I'm sure you and the missus won't be disappointed.
Jings. That puts Scotch football into perspective.
aHA in reply to big sandy & kingdoc, indeed it is well legend and general dutch crazy person Luc Nijholt. He was my favourite player as a kid and was of course part of the 91 cup winning team. Then he made a big money move to Swindon! Tho i think he played when they were in the premiership. He was assistant manager of AZ Alkmaar & i think he's managing in the dutch 2nd division now.
My pal Hugh Dallas is a big 'well fan but for obvious reasons he can't say as much. Anne, I'm really looking forward to it. For all you girls going to Edinburgh have a great time. The athens of the north for good reason (apart from the weather), but nae peeking up the mens' kilts now!
Twas ever thus. Outside Celtic/Rangers and maybe Hearts/Hibs, everyone else is pretty much english league 1 material. Lost 2 decent players to Southend(!) this season.
Jings. That puts Scotch football into perspective.

The Broons award for first ever Channels use of "Jings"goes to Woody.


Big Sandy head for http://www.brouwerijhetij.nl/eng/index.html
and treat yourself for your birthday.

Crivens! Such an honour.
LOL! Anyway wheesht the lot of youse!
Jolly good translation, old chap. Pip pip toodaloo.
Another question friends. My wife loves diamonds (she ain't getting any though)! I know there are diamond outlets who offer free tours. Any tips on the best? Do you need to book the tours?
There are a few who do tours. My favourite used to be but I don't think they do it these days

You could try

No, you shouldn't need to book and the tour can be quite interesting even if you don't treat Mrs Sandy!

And of course there are jewelers shops all over town (which I try very hard to avoid but often end up in Mr Wachels store on Damstraat!)

:-)
Christ!!! is that where hes ended up lol.

Nice 1!! you should like it in august as the festival/fringe & military tatoo is on.
Yea some of the lesser suported clubs are pure skint m8!! they struggle to even get free transfers.
Tut, tut...Stop the name dropping Big Sandy !!

Hugh Dallas.....a 'Well fan ??? crikey !! im from Joburg and i always thought Hugh had leanings towrds the "Blue" half of Glasgow !!
Joburg, naw he's def a 'well fan. The green side of Glasgow don't like him and the blue side thinks he's from the green side. Jeezo, the guy can't win. No mean city.

Its the military band that perform every year here in edinburgh!! its called the "tatoo" for some unkown reason,anyways here is the official site if you want a look www.edinburgh-tattoo.co.uk/
Getting ready to go. What's the weather like?
Getting better and better, mostly sunny.
Have a great time time Sandy. If the weather's good, you can't beat walking round the canals, stopping every so often for light refreshment. Just booked myself for the 31st May for a long weekend. Hope the weather's still nice cos i'm camping for the 1st time in about 10 years!

p.s. not all that surprised about Hugh Dallas, he's from Motherwell/Wishaw originally isn't he?
Camping here in Holland around that time? Sounds cold, even when its sunny during daytime.
Spot on Nijholt. Hugh Dallas from Bonkle!!! It has a ring to it.
Ha i knew it! Tho mind you every other b*gger round here supports the old firm so maybe i should be surprised!

As regards the camping, i've kind of booked at the last minute and don't have a lot of cash. I have camped in torridon (way up north of scotland) in march so the cold holds no fear for me! Have camped at zeeburg in september before and it wasn't too bad. Here's hoping for another heatwave!

Zeeburg has cabins I think - luxury.
