We will also be spending time in Germany, anyone know anything about the laws there? As much as I know its somewhat decriminalized but at discretion based on situation <?> I have a lot of research ahead of me I think...
rent a bike. i think we got two of them for the week for 75-80 euro.
there are fantastic bike lanes. people know how to use their bells. there are trailers for children. the cars are courteous. it's a great way to see the city.
i wouldn't reccommend bike riding while high, in a foreign city, with kids though. if you're gonna smoke and tour...then just walk around.
red light district, anne frank haus and many other attractions were all very near each other. there are coffee shops dispersed all over the place. lots of nice restaurants. falafal carts EVERYWHERE!!!
take the train from the airport. it's easy and not a long ride at all. you may want to make sure you don't have much luggage though, as you'll have to cart it around yourself.
and i agree with a pp re: space cake. eating MJ ends up being WAY more intense. Have him eat 1/4 to 1/2 of a piece and wait 20-30 minutes to see how he feels. Especially if he doesn't usually partake.
one thing i regret? hmmmm...buying too much weed. unless you're really a connoisseur don't bother tasting every.single.strain. you won't be able to smoke it all and if you try you run the risk of burning yourself out and not seeing the sights of the city 'cuz you're too tired.
the best thing we did while we were there? a flea market a little ways out of the city. (like 10 minutes) and a small jazz fest. INFACT> make sure you find out what kind of these little events are going on...because the museums and stuff that people usually go see had long lines and were kind of boring!! but the small street shows and vendors were GREAT!
if you buy anything for consuming mj don't smoke out of it until you get it home.
make sure you try panekoken (sp? but it's dutch pancakes)
mushrooms are legal there too...just so you know!!
that's all i can think of right now. have a great time!!
