ahh what a set up! a u.s style eighth and kif !!

everything you need is provided for you

Luggage and bags: no need to bring your own pipe, plus the airport security may not like that..i would reccomend bringing a pack of zig zags for that feel good american style joint..

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: otherwise the prerolled cones are quite amazing and most shops have bongs or free papers..

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: pokers are also provided by the shops.

Photo Equipment: ask before snapping photo's of yourself toking a bowl, or of your nice stash..most allow it some won't!

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: never camp at a coffeeshop, this is not the grand canyon you cannot stay all night, drink your drink smoke your spliff or whatever, relax for a bit..but never set up camp, this is not cool behavior!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

best medicine in town available everywhere! - Amsterdam

best medicine in town available everywhere!

be prepared for rain and cold Rain gear Review

Luggage and bags: we brought backpacks and one piece of a day bag.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: good light backpacking shoes, warm socks, thermal underwear, beanie or other type of hat that will keep your ears warm..

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: im not sure if it's all of europe but the toilet paper at our b&b was very rough and not what my spoiled american butt is used to..i suggest you bring some charmin!

Photo Equipment: i brought a fugi digital camera with a 16mb chip, a 32mb chip, and a 64mb chip..we also brought a weather proof 35 mm camera with black and white film.

Miscellaneous: we always bring advil with us, when you get a headache it's nice to be able to just take it now vs. tracking down a store to find some! but thankfully in amsterdam they have coffeeshops which will provide all the daily medicine your body needs..i'll take some white widow over nyquil any day!
