Korting op Mode
Wat dit ermee te maken heeft weet ik niet
maar als je korting wil op mode enzo
en je ben een Trendy vrouw ga dan is kijke
deze site , dus dan weetje dat D&G , Indian Rose
Noa en nog veel meer
red light area no 3
The third window watchin fun area is by far the smallest
maybe even area is a word to big for it , red light street fits better , not to disapoint any one going there
Its in the other side of the center this one , something like 10 minutes walk from the Leidseplein near the museum area
small street but also ladies at the second floor
just to let you know
that there are three area s , the first area has most value to visit when you just want to see what its all about
your invisible friend
red light area no 2
the second largest red lights area of Amsterdam
unknown to many tourist even to many Dutch tourists
is the Area around the beginning of the Spuistraat , this street starts near the central station on the right side of the central station looking into the city direction .
This area is much more quiet , less people movin lesser drug dealers , but for the lover of window watchin fun , there is enough to see , here there are old buildings as wel canals
but its much smaller than the Wallen area , on both sides of the spuistraat you wil have side lanes with red lights on the spuistraat it self there are windows as wel and on the right side of the spuistraat if you enter from direction central station you will find a area with some streets , I think this street is more discrete for people who wanna donate money and maybe even more to the ladies workin there ( i will ad a some fotos later )
Amsterdam has 3 redlight areas i know off (no 1 )
So back to the famous toppic of Amsterdam
red lights ... gonna make a promise here , im gonna ad some fotos to the site of the red lights , got to get out there and make the fotos , but i will , i might do this tommorrow allready
Red Light Area No 1 " De Wallen "
this is the biggest and most famous red-light area of Amsterdam .
Here there is always some movement and most of the time very very crowded ( gonna add some crowded foto as wel later ) Most of the movement is made by tourists . who walk in big groups for a little window watchin entertainment.
You will see everything , groups of girls , groups of elderly people , couples , loud ass Drunken English Hooligans , Italians , Spaniards , Americans ...many many tourists every single day cruisin this very famous red light area of Amsterdam
I did many red light tours with my bicycle taxi , most memorable tour was with two ladies who couldnt get enough
we ended up touring for more than an hour , the were like little girls in a themepark , we want another round the said something like tree times .... why was this ???
These ladies got lots of attention as well from prostitutes who liked joking with the ladies and also wanted them to come in ..
and from man cruisin the street ...
It is a very lively area , lots of fun especially if you are there for the first time .
Be careful dear children of mother earth , there are drugdealers looking for customers and they dont really seem to recognize there customers very well , so say to practically all the tourist ....psssss eeeeey cocaine XTC ...these are illigal activities and illigal drugs in liberal Amsterdam , but these guys must be like weeds to the police .
What to do ?
just ignore if you are not interested in doing illegal drugs.
what else offcourse be aware off pickpockets in all crowded areas off the city , i have been mugged twice , one time i got my stuff back though because i caught the thieve , maybe later more about this adventure .
Go there after sun set ...It really looks romantic ... pretty old buildings next to canals with red lights reflecting everywhere , it has much more atmosphere than the daytime and if you dont go to late there will be a big crowd to make you feel safe
Amsterdam Where to stay
very important if you visit Amsterdam is having nice suitable accomodation
I dont know who you are ... maybe you are backpacker or maybe even a business man a maried couple
I ve had all kind of people in the back of my bicycle taxi
all nice children of the same Creator occupied with different roles in this universal play .
If you are a backpacker you most likely want to stay in a Hostel ...Cheap and with lots of people to meet
I have some experience with Amsterdam Hostels of wich i will speak in the special Hostel Blog
If you are business man or a couple in love
you would preffer a Hotel ... there are really many Hotels in Amsterdam and im inspired here as well , I will make a special Blog with advice for Hotels ... places for Love and places for Business
in both cases Hostel or Hotel its best to book in advance
once had a Belgian guy in the back of my bike , wanting my help to find a place , we went to hostels and hotels ... all were full , we could use the phone directory of the hostels to call but no body had a place for him , he offered me money to stay in my house ...poor guy ...sorry but i had to work
called a friend for him though , but also didnt want to take the stranger into the house
so my friends book in advance

Amsterdam bike riding
Amsterdam is the city of bikes
bikes everywhere , millions of bikes throughout the city , with big big locks on them .
a bike is the ideal way of transportation in Amsterdam , their is a very good infrastructure , with many bikelanes and even special bike roads .
You can almost park your bike anywhere ( dont forget the locking of the bike )
it even gives you a feeling of freedom , riding among the locals on your rented bike ( wich is mostly the case with tourists )
many fun canals with nice bridges , exept if you ride bicycle-taxi ...though ...
its a big bike playground , especially on the nice sunny days
cruise the city ...
and if you want more , I ve got great advice for you , go for a tour . There are many nice places to go near Amsterdam , wich will give you unique experience of the dutch country-side landscape , wich is pretty near to Amsterdam , ride your bike to Marken for instance , its beautifull
soon i will ad links with free maps or discriptions wich can help you find the place , for the time being , there are many signs wich will guide you there as well ( part of the very good bicycle infrastructure in the Netherlands)
have fun ...
dont forget your snacks though ,

Amsterdam ...city of pot and prostitutes...or is there more...??
It is true my dear friends , there is lots of pot ( marijuana ) in the city and many very nice places to smoke ...your nice hotel room included , if you do stay in a nice hotel and have a smokin room that is .
I ve had some nice experiences with pot smokin tourists in the city ...especially the newbies ..hehe..
BE CAREFULL!!! its strong stuff really trust me
smoked with a big guy ones (newbie) and he really got knocked of his feet ( was drinkin ass wel , this casino director )
maybe later i will tell you the details of this fun story .
By the way he Got knocked of his feet in the red light area( the wallen ) ... and really if you knew the exact details you would laugh ...hehe like i am now ...
So you all ready heared it , yes there is a red light area and a big chance that you wanna visit it ...window watchin fun
but hey no need to go inside my friend ...because these ladies are money hungry sharks ( words from a amsterdam street pimp )
But i must say there are some fine lookin sharks out there , really fine lookin trust me on this one .
if you wanna know the best streets for window watchin , i might tell you later in a special to this dedicated blog .
Sorry folks im gonna change the subject here ...
because Amsterdam is a lot more than red and green .
Its a really beautifull historical city with beautifull canals and historical buildings every where , which i personally love very much .
We have a beautifull park ( the vondel park ) a must go on a warm Amsterdam day , have a picknick there with your loved one or loved ones if you have a harem or more likely a family of friends ... you will be among many real Amsterdam people , who all seem to speak english and seem to be pretty friendly.
Amsterdam is filled with restaurants and good places to eat
from as less as 5 euro you can have a nice meal , if you know where though ... and prices rise as far as you budget , there are michelin star restaurants and ex michelin star restaurants and many places between these two
may Life guide you to the right place for you
