    Journal de bord n°2 : Amsterdam et Cie

    August 13 in the Netherlands ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    Du 11 au 15 août

    Nous avons séjourné dans une petite cabine au sein d'un camping dans Amsterdam.
    Cette ville est sublime, il y a des choses à voir à tous les coins de rue. L'architecture est exceptionnelle et raconte l'histoire d'Amsterdam.
    On a beaucoup marché, pris le tram, sillonné les nombreuses rues de cette ville.
    On a fait une balade en péniche au coucher de soleil et visité le musée de la prostitution (métier à part entière, soumis à des lois et à la déclaration à la chambre des commerces).

    Nous avons aussi visité Haarlem, à quelques kilomètres d'Amsterdam, d'ailleurs surnommée la Mignonne d'Amsterdam. Jolie ville pleine de charme avec cent fois moins de touristes et d'effervescence que chez sa voisine.

    Et pour finir, on a fait un petit tour (22 km à pieds) à Rotterdam. Cette ville est énorme, géante, très construite, très moderne. On a visité les fameuses Kijk-kubus (maisons cubes) qu'on vous met en photo.
    On a fini la journée par un gros orage alors qu'on devait rejoindre la gare à plus de 3 km à pieds.

    À retenir :
    - Les maisons d'Amsterdam sont très étroites car, à l'époque, l'impôt était prélevé selon la largeur de la façade. La plus étroite fait 2,02 m de large.
    - Il y a 600 000 vélos pour plus de 730 000 habitants, dont environ 12 000 au fond de l'Amstel
    - 50% de la population amsterllodamoise a moins de 34 ans et il n'y a que 15% d'enfants
    - Le cannabis est légal (ça on le sait, et ça se sent d'ailleurs)
    - L'ice-Tea est pétillan
    - Il y a des voitures Tesla à tous les coins de rue

    Bon allez, trêve de bavardages. On part pour l'Ecosse....
    Ah non ! La quatorzaine vient d'être imposée aux français. Plus qu'à tout annuler et aller voir ailleurs si on veut bien de nous. Allemagne ? Italie ? Suisse ?

    À suivre...

    Das Tuschinski-Theater

    April 10, 2019 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Allmählich wurden unsere Beine schwerer und auch die Kraft etwas weniger, nachdem wir schon seit fast 9 Stunden auf den Beinen waren. Trotzdem wollten wir noch weiter und unsere Runde abschließen. Als nächstes sind wir zum Tuschinski-Theater. Bei dem Theater handelt es sich um ein traditionsreiches Kino in Amsterdam. Es enthält einen großen Saal mit 784 Plätzen und fünf kleineren Kinosälen mit je 105 bis 191 Plätzen. Während ich mir das Theater angesehen habe, hatte ich Nadine plötzlich aus den Augen verloren. Kurz umgedreht war mir sofort klar, dass sie im anliegenden Dunkin Donuts ist. Als ich einen Blick reingeworfen habe, hat sie mich angestrahlt und stand bereits in der Warteschlange.Read more

    Amsterdam ja söök

    July 16, 2019 in the Netherlands ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Starbucksi jookidest said meie kõhud veel rohlem täis ning otsustasime, et tuleme vaatame seda söögi asja õhtu poole. Tahtsime linna niikuinii näha ka ööpimeduses. Käisime hotellis puhkamas paar tundi ja ootasime pimedust.

    Kui õige aeg oli kätte jõudnud võtsime oma velod ja kimasime kesklinna. Liiklus on öösel kõvasti rahulikum. Sõitsime mööda kanaleid ja tänavaid ringi ja tutvusime natuke niisama linnaga. Öösel on linn hoopis teine, öösel on kõikjal tulukesed ja laternad nagu oleks jõulud ja rattad kimavad tuledega ringi.

    Lõpuks läksime võtsime mäkist snäkke ja Wok to walkist (olime seda juba päeval nillinud) nuudleid. Seal sai endale komponentide kaupa söögi kokku panna. Sõitsime hotelli tagasi ja mõnnasime voodis rämpsu süües. Olime selleks hetkeks juba täitsa väsinud. Ega iga päev ei sõida umbes 12km niisama rattaga.

    One night in Amsterdam

    June 12, 2019 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Nach einem Achterbahnflug kamen wir gegen Mittag in Amsterdam an und es begrüßte uns -Überraschung- strömender Regen:D zum Glück hat es dann schliesslich doch noch aufgehört, sodass wir ungestört unseren kulinarischen Streifzug durch die Stadt machen konnten. Es gab stroopwaffeln, rundvleeskroketten (Michi's wahre Liebe), Pommes (Thuis wahre Liebe) und ein sehr käselastiges parmigiano de melanzane. Zum Glück bleiben wir hier nur einen Tag, Sonst würden wir vermutlich zurückrollen:DRead more

    Initial challenges, before it comes good

    September 26, 2019 in the Netherlands ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    After we'd had breakfast and got ourselves organised we decided to head downtown to explore Amsterdam . The no. 13 tram stop was just a couple of hundred metres from the hotel, and from there it was an easy 20 minute run to the centre of town.

    The weather was lousy, with rain and Intermittent heavy showers. The wind was blowing strongly enough to turn our brollies inside out, and destroy Brian's, so it wasn't all that pleasant. Nevertheless we could see so many interesting views of canals and historic buildings and Brian was determined to try and get some good shots with the brand new camera.

    This camera has so many features and menu settings that il requires a lot of time, which we didn't have, to become familiar with them all. So there we were, all rugged up against the wind and rain, wrestling with brollies and trying to use an unfamiliar camera while trying to keep it from getting wet. That was certainly a low point and the closest, so far at least, to Brian having a dummy spit. Fortunately Mary was there to help calm him down.

    Things actually started looking up from then on, with the showers becoming less frequent. Also, Brian found that he was able to get a few half decent camera shots.

    For a while we just wandered, enjoying the views, but then headed for the old Jewish district, which is part of the Old Town. As the rain was still hanging round we decided we'd concentrate at least initially on visiting the insides of buildings and avoiding the worst of the weather. The Portuguese Synagogue was quite interesting, evidently one of the biggest synagogues in Europe. Our entry tickets also entitled us to visit the Jewish Museum and that was really great , with the displays and exhibits beautifully set up. We spent quite a bit of time there, by which stage the weather had improved marginally.
    We then headed headed towards the red light district, nowadays more of a tourist attraction than anything else. There was still plenty of interesting and unusual merchandise on offer from many of the shops but nothing that would appeal greatly to a couple who have been married for 52 years. Still we did thoroughly enjoy our introduction to Amsterdam.
    It is a very picturesque city and pedestrian friendly, more or less. That qualification refers to the fact that, while there are plenty of pedestrian crossings and pedestrian traffic lights, they are completely ignored by the huge number of bike riders who clearly take the view that they have priority over everyone else. Quite a few times we found ourselves having to leap out of their way or get run down. .
    One of the very pleasant features of Amsterdam is the friendliness and helpfulness of the locals. You only have to be looking slightly puzzled or be staring at a map and almost immediately someone will be asking if you'd like some help. On crowded trams, younger people would immediately leap to their feet to offer us a seat and were most insistant that we accept their offer.
    By late afternoon we were pretty exhausted, so headed back to the hotel for a refresh before dinner.
    Rather than eat at the hotel we then headed back on the tram towards town and stumbled across a really great, friendly and authentic Italian restaurant. The day had started out a bit shakily but got significantly better as it progressed. Amsterdam is an easy city to like.

    Welcome aboard

    September 28, 2019 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    A pleasant buffet breakfast and Brian was once again doing battle with the incompetents at Virgin Global Wallet. After them insisting that they couldn't do anything to help us until we had sent them proof by means of a screen shot from our phone proving that another part of their own organisation had done what was asked of them by updating Mary's mobile number in their own system, they finally demonstrated that their stupidity knows no bounds. We received an email telling us that the mobile number we had nominated as belonging to Mary and the number shown in the requested screen shot were different. The difference? One of them showed the +61 international dialling code while the other one didn't. So, email number 20 or thereabouts, pointing out their stupidity was duly sent. Surely that lot exists in some sort of Kafkaesque world.

    Anyway, we duly checked out late morning and Ubered to the Amaverde, our mobile home for the next 15 days. Quite a few fellow travellers had arrived already, all of them Aussies or Kiwis, and we too were welcomed aboard. Ample sandwiches, cakes and drinks were available, and we were happy to make ourselves at home out of the wet weather in the large and comfortable lounge. At the 3pm check-in time we were shown to our cabin, where our luggage was waiting for us.

    The cabin and bathroom proved to be surprisingly large with plenty of storage space. Heading back upstairs to the lounge we all received a detailed briefing about what was happening and what in turn was required of us.

    One thing became apparent early on. With unlimited quantities of drinks and excellent food it would be easy to turn into a 120kg alcoholic very quickly. Dinner and drinks were excellent.

    The tour leader had suggested that if anyone wanted to go for a wander, the Red Light district was only a few hundred metres away and was well worth a visit. We had seen it in broad daylight hours a couple of days previously, but thought it would be worth a look after dark. As we were passing the reception desk we overheard a fellow passenger, Caroline, asking for directions, so the three of us decided to join forces to explore the Red Light district.

    It was a pleasant leisurely walk of about a kilometre to get there, and what a surprise when we arrived . It was so different from our previous daytime visit. For a start, the streets of the area were jam-packed with pedestrians., and clearly not all of them were looking for girls. There were so many restaurants of all styles, and all of them seemed to be doing a roaring trade.

    Then, of course, there were the girls. There were dozens of them to be seen, but rather than standing in shop doorways each of the very scantily clad girls was standing inside what was almost like their own individual shop window. The moment a client opened the door and walked inside a blind would immediately be pulled down, and the rest was up to ones imagination.

    Brian was carrying his camera on a strap round his neck, and the instant he looked like picking it up to get a photo there would be loud vigorous banging on the glass window and wild gesturing from whatever girl was the likely photographic subject. Fearing either a riot or a beating Brian had to abandon any notion of photographing the girls.

    It was an interesting visit. Unlike Sydney's Kings Cross it wasn't at all seedy, and there wasn't the yobbo element that one might expect to find in Australia. We got back to the boat at around 11pm having had another full and interesting day.
