24-27th Otober 23

Post by jiffa »

First time having a go at a travelogue will see what I can remember from 4 days of good smoking :mrgreen:

Day 1
Starting off with the 6.05am flight so no real sleep the night before, we pile into a taxi at 3 bells and we are on our way, get to airport in what felt like light speed (think driver had somewhere else to be) bag checked in and out for a pre-flight smoke. Through security and patiently wait on gate to open.

Check in is not until 1pm so we have a couple of hours to pass,first stop for breakfast smoke is Bagheera as its just around corner from apartment and start off with some Lemon Bubble absolute bargain at 10e/g spent a couple of hours and also tried the Huey Newton 14e/g. mates got various bits but the Planet Purple stood out.

Check into apartment and get settled smoke through the last of the Bagheera stash, wash change and we step out into a wet Amsterdam

you feel like your home. Had the Blueberry a brilliant example and a repeat purchase also got some Pineapple Chunk, think we smoked everything on the menu between us. We left and decided on a quick spliff and stock up for the apartment so a stop off at het Gelderse on the way picked up some Black Runtz 15e/g and a nice example of Lemon Haze 12e/g then a quick Shoarma stop

bringing a long but good first day to a close.

Day 2

Up and at it wake and bake time and then we are heading to Tyson 2.0 one of my mates is a massive boxing fan so the combination of Tyson and a place to have a smoke is something we have to investigate passed this on the way

have to say despite the price it was a really nice bit of flower, it was pouring outside so we settled in for a sesh various other bits bought through the morning standout was Girl Scout Cookies really good example.

After a while we hatch a plan to go to Amnesia during a break in the rain back into the soggy streets of Amsterdam with a happy baked glow and that lovely stoned just happy to be here expression on the faces wander by this place
I'm sure it means something else

Day 2 Continued

On our way we have a very surreal and what can only be explained as an Amsterdam moment bloke was trying to push a testing trailer on his own but was struggling why he thought to ask 4 stoners for help was on him, but we played our part helped move it amazingly not taking out the pole and the bike

After a while we take our chances and head for some food and back to the apartment.

Night time we head out and one of my mates wants to watch the football so we find a smoker friendly bar to watch the match and smoke through whats left from Amnesia, football done time to head to Solo for a last hour smoke and stock up for the night, we get there just after 11 and the budtender says its cool to smoke till 11.45 then he's closing up delighted I tell him that'll do fine and purchase some Big Buddha Cheese 13e/g great example and some Rinse 20e/g another lovely bit of flower

Day 3

The main reason we came on this trip was because we lost two of our closest one being the dad of two my mates and the other more like a brother, we spent many happy times in Amsterdam over 25 years plus and felt it would be nice to scatter some of their ashes at Vondelpark a place where many a spliff was shared on a summers day, This will be only my 2nd tram ride in all the years of visiting but first we have to get Metro, tickets purchased and we are on our way

we smoke a couple of spliffs and remember some of the good times and then decide to head to Old Church, first time visiting the new shop the original shop was a place we spent many hours people watching from the windows upstairs so I was surprised that the female budtender with the big curly hair from the original shop was sitting in the new shop we had a smoke and reminisced about times in the old place

After grabbing something to eat and a quick stop off at the digs to freshen up we head to Solo it's busy so grab a bit of Mango Sapphire Filtered 16e/g very soft piece of hash and we head back to de Kuil for a smoke, more Blueberry picked up was really loving the flavour on this batch.

Back to the digs to smoke today's collection of bits and get set for heading home tomorrow
