    Small but close

    Climbing up or down the stairs was the most perilous thing, especially with a backpack and luggage. The shower was in the same little room as the toilet, which made it complicated to wash ourselves. The room was very small and simple, but everything was clean. The good thing is that there are a bunch of good restaurants and bars next door, the flower market is on the next street and the city center and Red Light district are pretty close too.

    Amsterdam layover 2

    A travel blog entry by sweetobsolete on May 26, 2015

    We arrived in Amsterdam around 6AM. This time, I was determined to actually leave the airport and get that stamp in my passport. I really wanted a proper tour, or to at least go to the red light district, but I did not have enough money for a taxi at this point (which was like $100!) So, I decided to hop on a train and go somewhere. All the signs were in Dutch, my phone was ...

    Once again, blue skies and mild temperatures greeted us this morning, so we planned a walking tour into the Jordaan area of Amsterdam, a gentrified and sedate neighborhood that lies to the northwest of the Dam Square, and seemingly miles away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area.

    We started out around 10:30 by walking to Dam Square, with the hope of visiting the interior of the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), but could not gain entry due to a special ...

    ... Spanish schools. We found some all over the country, but somehow and for some reason - that I can’t totally remember, we narrowed in on Barcelona. I think the water, the location, the proximity to a large city, the weather and other such things came into play.

    So, Barcelona it was. We booked appointments at schools, an apartment in Sitges, and got ready to move. Remember too, we had to do this in a rush as we were being “kicked out” of ...

    ... bicycle back and walked out of the park towards the bike. An hour later I was back at the hostel, but by now it was after 8pm and I wasn't all that hungry. I walked to the nearby supermarket and bought some more Earl Grey tea, sugar, and two blocks of chocolate - that should tide me over until tomorrow when I ride to Brussels - but it's only an hour away so I think I'll take the long way up along the northern coast and have a look at some of the beaches on the ...

    ... head on in or come out satisfied. We decided to stop in "Sex Palace" to see a peep show for 2 euros. Everyone got into a private booth around a central stage and got to see a topless older woman and another young lady. The strangest part was that we could see the guys across from us through their window. It was definitely kinda gross, but cool.
    The rest of the night was spent inside of a bar/coffeeshop and well you can tell how that went too. ...
