Where I stayed
Bobs Youth Hostel
that beatiful friday afternoon and went straight to Amsterdam. I had no idea what to expect from the city that tolorates all. The big XXX .
I was joined by some friends and we started off in a cosy iris pud. Excellent beer , food and athosfeer. I actually also got to play a few games pool even tough it cost me 2 euro per game ( thats about 10 time more that in S.A. ) The plan was to sleep over in an amsterdamiaan backpackers for the night and then continnue our touristic journey the next day. After a few pints of bavaria we decided it was time to look for a backpakkers..
Thats when we found BOBs Youth Hostel. What can i say. It was a experiance like none before
We must have walked around for an hour before we found a decent place to chill out. We are from rotterdam , where the fuck are you from. We were patroling the street of amsterdam like stoere boere with its smells of wintercold , ganja en international desperates in the red light district. We ended up in a turkish lounge chilling and smoking a hublybubly ( waterpyp ) . The night was great fun but we were really tired so we made out wy back to bob s . I ended up getting a goods night rest besides the fact that the argintinian next to me snored like a hippo.
It was a new day and the start of our true amsterdamiaan adventure . We wanted to visit the heineken experiance , anna frank house , die walle , sex museam and we were on a mission to find the best space cakes in amsterdam. after checking out we started walking for what felt like hours. Rotterdamiaans are real cheapos :P . We went from centraal to rembrant plein to leidse plein and at last museam plein. Unfortunately the rijks museam and the heineken experiance were under construction . We got to see amsterdam pretty well though and had lots of fun. so back we went to centraal this time with a tram .The anna frank was so full we would have to wiat 4 hours and we still hadnt found our space cakes yet or visited the red light
6 50 for a have you met the muffin man space muffin seemed pretty steep but the chop chip
muffins were irresistable. Me Tim and anouk munched down the soft and moist muffins in jiffy. We were told just to go on with watever rather than wait for the effect as it can take up to 2 hours ! We then went to the sex museam which was really funny as tim already looked pretty stoned:P .. anouk and i was still feeling fine so we continueed down town to the walle . I must say it wasnt a pleasurefull experiance but really mind blowing. It might have been the muffins kicking in.
As we were making our way back to the stasion the muffins kicked in ..it was really weird feeling and a brisk walk seemed impossible. I greeted my fiends and bought a ticket bck to weesp. By this time i really had to fokus to understand what was happening around me .
i arrived safely in weesp but was smack bang in the middel of my stonedness. It was another beatiful day so I went to sit on a beanch overlooking the cannal . after about an hour I walked home and went stright to bed . I slept like a baby for 15 hours .
And so I experianced to raw amsterdamiaan culture and disided to never eat those muffins agian :)
Next week i make my way to sweden to visit my very good friend daniel.
Im looking forward to all the weird and wacky things that would confront me
as i contunue my backpaking adventure.
