Ultimate Party Pub Crawl




Balls to her lizard, tell her if you wanted to cheat what the fuck is stopping you in Austrailia she sounds like she is very naive by not letting you go, my wonderful Fiancee has no problems with me going with mates later this month as she trusts me, then again I will be smoking for 3 days steady.

You've given up already? Maybe she can be persueded to have a change of heart?

Ditch Her!
Life withoot holidays is nae fun
I know how you feel m8!. 2 trips to Amsterdam alone cancelled in the past year due to my gf not wanting to go due to me smoking over there and her not wanting me to go on my own.

Well I've pretty much told her I'm going reguardless next feb as there is no way I'm going to cancell a third trip due to her protests.

Ok so she is a non (weed) smoker and dont like the idea of me being "off my head for 3 or 4 days solid". But telling her that I wont be off my head in the way she thinks and not expecting her to smoke the gear has made her think twice.

So I've told her I'll only smoke half the 14 a day I did last time and either she will go with me or I'll be going alone!.

Won't budge?

Then you're not doing it right! Did you mention a little visit to or somewhere similar whilst you're there? That would work for me!

Yes we were going to visit there too.

She saw the doctor this morning and i saw him myself tonight.

We hope to find out the under lying factor in the next few weeks.

As we had no problems 18 months ago when were away.

I have tried everything.

Well it was her inheritance money so no skin off my back.

Ill spend her money somewhere else

why do men allow women to control what they do? just frigging go, dave. balls to her. tell her to fuck right off. she will either do as she is told or you will have to get another bird. either way it's a fucking result.

You miss the big point. Relationships are about trust. She should trust you, or your relationship has an unstable base....or maybe it is your friends or whomever you'd be going with that are the problem? Either way you should talk it out. Leaving things unresolved will just let them fester... and that aint good either.

I have visited ams once without my wife (for Dance Valley 2002 I think it was), I went with some friends instead. It was good, but no where near as enjoyable as it was when we go together. I guess that's why we are together.

If she has never been to ams perhaps you should propose a possible itinerary, there's something for everyone in ams if you look. If she likes food you have tons of choices. Theatre? Clubbing? Musuems? Architecture? Cinema? Shopping? Besides the obvious benefits Ams is a great city for a visit. She shouldn't feel that she's going there to chaperone you :o)

Did I mention the shopping? My wife loves the shopping in Amsterdam. I can usually be found in the nearest CS during teh actual shopping, but hey I have a good time and so does she :o) At least then when I see what she has bought I am already anesthetized in preparation for the shock......"Yes, that is really nice. No I mean it.....really. What a bargain!" etc etc
Firstly I am gutted for you mate but you don't say why your wife has had such a radical change of mind although you mention doctors visits (the reason whatever it may be is however none of our business anyway)

I visit Amsterdam alone every year as Mrs Swin
a) doesn't like the place and
b) has rheumatoid arthritis so a city holiday with lots of walking is not for her

You really must consider going on your own (it's better on your own anyway IMO) - you don't say that your wife doesn't want you to go, only that she has changed her mind about going herself.

In hindsight missing the 4 weeks in UK and Scotland is a bit of a bonus - your wife has done you a favourbut Amsterdam and Singapore are 'musts' (perhaps you could extend Amsterdam and ditch the UK part of your trip?)

Talk about it reasonably and suggest you make a shorter trip alone - if it works leave me a beer in the pump at the Gollem!
just lie to her. tell her you are going on a business trip elsewhere.
yeah man, tell her you're going walkabout and dont come back for 18 months

thats what mick dundee would do
Bummer, Lizard
Hope to see you someday.

Dag
TAK
Sorry to hear about your situation. My buddy was going to go with me and his wife pulled the plug when we went to buy the airfare. My wife knows better to think that I'd spend money on a hooker when there is premium weed to be bought and smoked. His didn't think so...

Whatever... Some women are just crazy and need to chill out.

I told my wife that I wanted to go, she said she didn't. I said "how about just me going". She said good, get out of my hair for a week! The sad thing is though is that we've only been married for 8 years. I hoping to sneak in the "we're moving to Holland" thing in another decade or so. Maybe she'll be ready to give in by then like she did with the Amsterdam holiday.

Tell her you're going and that's final. She what she says. Let her go through the rants and raves for a few days - she'll come around. You mentioned doctor - if she's going to be pregnant, dying or dead, I can understand that. But otherwise - GO! What's she going to do? Leave you? If that's the case, good riddens. Who wants a boring old bat like that anyhow?

What a constructive and helpful solution - just what he needs I'm sure!
My situation with the gf is a little more sensative than most. First off there has been a bad history with drug use in her family. Secondly we have a 10 month old baby and she dont like the idea of leaving it for 4 days to visit another country. On top of that she is suffering from depression via a bad birth.

But in my favour as it is now, she accepts we need a trip away, just the both of us, I have already as said missed 2 previous trips to Amsterdam (so hardly in the slightest being unreasonable in insisting I'm deffo going next feb for my birthday), Amsterdam is far easier and quicker to get back home from than most places in the UK. It's a place I know my way round well, has loads of interesating places for her to see (Anne Frank House for starters interests her), it's not all drugs in the city, very nice sights for both of us etc, etc.

Sure, I've told her I'll be doing the weed\hash thing. But even at my worse over there I've never really been in a state that leaves others needing to look after me.

In all honesty with my gf, I think she is more worried about going to a foreign country for the first time and being left on her own while I have my smokes and beer (getting off my head) than the smokes itself.

I guess it's the same with most wanting to take there other half with them for the first time when they only have but the single view of the city (drugs and sex trade). And I think thats the main problem, she and others simply cant see past what they know the city is mainly famous for due to what they only know of the place.
don't fuck around right now, she needs you.

that shit will pass but she's gonna need your help.

Man thats a shame that youd let her cancel your trip, me, id go and say to hell with her, if she was here wen i got back then great, if not then theres more fish in the sea and I for one like to swim. You better go while you can, before everything is banned there. Theres tons of girls man, theres only one Amsterdam.
yeah man, tell her you're going walkabout and dont come back for 18 months

thats what mick dundee would do

lol that was funny, mick dundee, man i loved thoes movies

Yep i saw all the posts.

Im over it all now getting on with my life.

Will probably go to SE Asia within next 12 months.

Thanks to all the replys.

Some where veryyyyyy interesting.

Well that's completely understandable then. My wife was pregnant when I went, but only about half way along and very healthy. I'm glad that I went before the new little one though because, she too, is having a bout with depression and needed prozac to help her through it. Nothing to mess around with.

Sorry if my first post seemed a little pointed, but I've seen first hand what crazy gf's/wives can be like. Goes the same the other way around too. People just gotta live now, not later. You'll never get around to it.

Hopefully the timing will be better for you down the road! Best of luck and I hope your mrs. makes a healthy, speedy recovery.

Quote from my Mom
Cheech
Understand completely man. My heart goes out to you mate. Your gf needs you now. Postpartum depression can be a very hard thing to deal with. She needs your support and your help. I hope things get better for you both. Amsterdam will be there for a long time, fingers crossed the depression will not.
To be honest the depresion aint that bad these days, it does to to come and go when we are both getting stressed out. But as she is coming off the medication in the next 2 months, a trip next feb wont be a problem.

She is more worried about leaving the baby for a few days than anything. It's more of a case I'm not having her take the piss and playing on the situation to stop me booking the flights next month!.

We both need the time away and I'd far sooner take the gf to Amsterdam than do the "lads trip" away thing yet again!. At least this time it will be a more relaxed thing than rushing round everywere going to as many a coffeeshop as possable!.

After 5 previous trips, I think I know the better places to visit by now, and know of the ones (thanks to this place) to visit in the future!.
I will be in A'dam next week and would like to hit a couple good bars.

I've heard and read crazy things about the Ultimate Party Pub Crawl.
I'm not looking to get too out of control, but want to have one good night where I can bar hop.

Am I better off hitting the bars on my own, or dong the pub crawl?
"Ultimate Party Pub Crawl"

Is it the last one you'll ever do then?

Organised pub crawls are often a good idea if you're in town on your own, but you can probably meet people by just going out and talking to people.
I did the ultimate pub crawl when I was there two summers ago and strongly disliked it. If you don't already feel like a tourist enough...wait until they are parading you through the streets yelling out of a megaphone as you follow like a herd of sheep. You get like 1 8 or 12oz beer at each bar (which is entirely cleared out to accept your group) and must wait in the bar until the group moves on. 6 bars from like 10pm to 5-6am means you definitely have to keep buying drinks at each bar and won't get all 6 free drinks if you leave early. Trust me...I tried.

I left about half way through as I was only in Adam 2 nights and didn't want to waste one of them on that. On the other hand...some people may enjoy it...I definitely did not. Hope this helps.

Why don't you get your dates posted on FBN's great and see who else is in town then? Maybe you could arrange a meet up and go from there
