23rd Sept - 25th Sept

Post by kiki1989 »

I booked in August after some flights got cancelled for early September. Less than £50 for return flights so rude not to.

Annoyingly I was supposed to fly out Wednesday morning and back Friday night. These flights got changed to Wednesday afternoon and Friday afternoon, meaning I lost about 16 hours, however more sociable times at least.

It’s the best time to go and perhaps my favourite trip yet. Got a seat everywhere. Lots of food, walking and chonging.

Stopped at Durty Nellys for £25 a night. Pod beds very comfortable and only one other lad in my room which is made for six. Perfect.

After checking in at 9pm I headed towards Harlemerstraat. I’ve never stepped foot in anything Barneys but really wanted to try Dr Grinspoon.
They didn’t have it in the small buy and fly shop, I didn’t really fancy any of their other strains, however still queued for ages with only one bud tender working (there were two) and one customer. Ended up u-turning.

Just Coffeeshop Amsterdam on the first night. Tangerine for about €14. It was average.

Day 2:-
- Het Ballonetje: Super Silver Haze. Wanted Super Orange Glue or Watermelon Zkittlez but neither available. Was alright although very disappointed that you can’t smoke tobacco anymore. Had the place to myself.
- Katsu: Man I love it in here. Mango haze. Lovely.
- Abraxas: Didn’t buy weed. Nice orange juice.
- Bagheera: First time. Went for Lemon Bubble, not on the menu. Opted for their Jack at just €9 a gram. Probably the best of the trip.
- Greenhouse United: Didn’t buy weed. Best banana milkshake ever.
- Dampkring: Again didn’t buy but caned their drinks menu.
- 420: Nevills Haze. Pretty good I think, but not quite the heights of the stuff I bought from Tweede Kamer back in 2012.
- Coffeeshop Amsterdam Cafe: Nice to know you won’t be pressured into buying weed.

31 miles walked (if Strava is to be believed although I’m not totally convinced). I’m telling everyone I did a marathon from now on, and smoke 17 joints along the way. One of the best days of my life.

Day 3:-
- Greenhouse United for another banana milkshake.
- Paradox: A space cake (smuggled home) and 0.4g of Gorilla Zkittlez which was pretty fucking awesome tbh. Wished I could’ve finished the bag but I was rushed for time and still had other bud to get through.
Katsu: Amnesia Haze pre-roll before heading home. Knocked me out. Left a full grinder, some Nevills Haze and a joints worth of Gorilla Zkittlez for one lucky punter on the table.

All in all excellent. Really want to go again.

Nice one Kiki. Shame you couldn't get any Dr G. I got it at Katsu funnily enough, couple years ago now. Guess if it was on you'd have seen it. Next time eh...

Short but sweet. Must try that banana shake sometime.
Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

Sounds like a straight to the point solo trip with lots of walking - something I'm hoping to do in July.

Nice one.
