I've been lurking in this forum for a little while because I've got a trip to Amsterdam planned for September and I have gotten all kind of great technical info so far, in fact I think I have the train schedule and taxi fares memorized by now. Also the location of every coffee shop and all kinds of day trips, but my question is why no trip reports? Not sure anyone can answer, but I rarely see posters come back here and report on their actual trips. The ones I have seen have been incredibly valuable, but they have been few and far between. Maybe it's the coffee shops? Does everyone forget what they did by the time they get home? Or maybe they don't want to talk about what happened in the red light district? Anyhow not sure if this has an answer but I hope more people will report on their experiences!
