"So High I Thought I Would Die: Canal Boat & Skunk" Canal Boat Tours Tip by LolaSanFrancisco
Canal Boat Tours, Amsterdam: 11 reviews and 12 photos
Time warp with me if you will to 1991?It was my first time in Amsterdam and then boyfriend and I were given two free tickets for a float-down-the-canal trip. So we ducked over to the side and lit up a fatty. However, by this time we knew exactly how much to smoke before it was too much. But I, being the bad ass that I am, dared us to not to just take ONE PUFF off the joint but TWO!
And that did it. It was Fear and Loathing in Amsterdam, I freaked out. I climbed in the canal boat, sat down and looked at said boyfriend in the face and firmly told him I was going to die, and that my heart was exploding. I put my head in my lap and cried. And off we went?.
Unique Suggestions: Then just like that! Snap. I was floating? calm waters, beautiful views, slow and serine. I was going to live! I sat up and smiled, thinking, ?Close call.? And just then, tour conductor lady started talking. She informed everyone that we would be on the little boat for an hour and a half and we were on a special tour of Gables. ?WHAT!? I shouted out loud to the dismay of tour conductor lady. ?WHAT? having two parts to it. Why! WHY so long? And: What the *** is a Gable? Well, an hour and a half later I knew. They are the stupid things that stick out of the tops of the buildings in order to haul furniture into the thin Dutch houses.
I still have the photo the tour company takes of everyone on that trip. At the end of the tour, all the photos are stuck up on this board. I saw mine and took it. I realized later that we had to buy them (dumb ass me) but the Dutch are too cool to go running down the street after some idiot American high on grass, lucky for me.
