The rooms were Ok but smaller than expected. The corridors smelt of smoke. The rooms were not as clean as I would have hoped. The location, although not far from the Lelylaan train station (2 stops from the airport) and 200 m to a tram stop and 500m to the far end of Vondel park, was in a weird situation of mixed business district, empty lots and residential blocks - no atmosphere at all nearby - but that is modern Amsterdam I suppose. it was still 3-4 km from the centre of Amsterdam requiring a tram trip in daily, kind of fun anyway - get a day pass on the tram cheaper - the centre, museums, cafes, canals etc is where we spent most of our time. But that's what you get for a budget price. I thought it was odd that the manager told us we MUST wait at the desk for 15 minutes to check out whilst she conducted the daily meeting with cleaning staff - this was a little inconvenient and more so for some who might need to make train connections, but not a show stopper. OK stay - but I would stay closer to the centre and spend a little more to do it.

... can't complain to much about our fuel prices
We drove onto the ferry and could then get off the coach and have a look around the ferry. There were restaurants, coffee shops, bars and duty free shops on board. I bought a cup of tea and got chatting to an Aussie couple from Melbourne. The cruise was very smooth and an announcement soon came to return to vehicles.
Off the ferry , we travelled through the French countryside and on to Belgium. We were on a 100kph ...
... to catch up on some reading while Catherine and Sam Jackson ran around non-stop for 3 hours. It was the perfect way to end our stay in Amsterdam.
Excerpt from Sam Jackson's Journal:
Ok, so when we got off the cruise ship we were back in Amsterdam. One place that we went was the Anne Frank House. It is where the girl Anne Frank had gone into hiding during world war II. She is very famous because she wrote a diary about her thoughts and ...
Such a fun few days with 2 of my fav ladies. The lovely Miss van Twuiver and the beautiful Amy Holliday aka Onion. It was so crazy seeing one of my oldest besties on the other side of the world. It was like a little slice of home. I loved seeing Onion and only wish she could've stuck around longer. Amsterdam is always a fun crazy time. We stayed in a nice little hotel just outta the city which made life easy as the metro was 20m away. The ...
... that are building the stadium are victims of human trafficking, already 100-300 have died from the heat and other accidents. Qatar has a system for migrant workers in which a "sponsor" has to sign for you to enter the country, however they also must sign for you to leave the country. This gives them immense power and a large risk for trafficking. The kidney was to represent human trafficking use in selling organs. Lastly, the pimp was to represent sex trafficking. ...
... to shine light on the good of some people. I think the saddest part about learning about this was that Anne was killed in a camp one month before the Nazi Party came to an end. The other thing that really shook me was a quote from Anne's father, Otto Frank. He said something to the extent that he always knew Anne was a smart girl but it wasn't until after he read her diary when she had passed that he full comprehended what a brilliant ...
