2 Days of Peace, Beats and Love at the PITCH Festival in Amsterdam

2 Days of Peace, Beats and Love at the PITCH Festival in Amsterdam:

We were in Amsterdam to cover the PITCH Festival (July 4 – 5) for Must Love Festivals, so with that in mind, and a busy work schedule, we didn’t get to play tourist a whole lot, beyond doing some lazy laps around the red light district, where we attended a €2 peep show and had the unfortunate luck of seeing another man’s vinegar strokes, and getting lost in the sunny shadows of golden-age canal houses….

Where to Snack, Sleep and Smoke in Amsterdam:

One of the great things about life is second chances. A second chance to get a better grade in school, a second chance at love, a second chance with your career, a second chance to say “I Love You,” and for us, as travelers, a second chance to see a city again. Beth and I got a second chance with Amsterdam last month. She was a mistress who just didn’t move us the first time…

Behind Glass Doors – A Stroll Through The Red Light District

Last year we visited Amsterdam for the first time, and we took a stroll through the Red Light District. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was surprised to find it wasn’t very seedy, it is definitely more of a tourist attraction. The main RLD street has a canal running through it along with bars, apartments, sex shops and restaurants. If you wanted you could just come here to grab a drink or a…

[google1][pinit count=”vertical” url=”http://www.beersandbeans.com” float=”right”] Editor’s note: This is a guest post from one of our UK readers. The ground beneath us rose up in a cloud of earth as the car tyres slide across the narrow road. Alex spun the steering wheel and rammed his foot into the brake pedal. We lurched towards the riverbank. Selina screamed. The dirt and gravel crunched beneath us, and we stopped. Something fell out the back of the car….

Amsterdam, I Can’t Find You – On The Road Journal Entries

bicycles in Amsterdam

[google1] There is nothing better than having paper & pen with you in a new place. When we travel, I always try to write my own personal reflections down about each country we visit in my trusty travel notebooks, which is lovingly supplied by my sister Bridgette at Earmark Social Paper Goods. Amsterdam was our first stop in Europe and I definitely didn’t fall in love with city the way most people do. However, after…

Modern Magdalene #1 – Red Light District, Amsterdam – Somewhere In Time Weekly Photo

Red-Light-District-Amsterdam-SFB

[google1] Somewhere In Time is a weekly photo from around the world. Enjoy! Somewhere In Time Is Back! This used to be a weekly ongoing series but with all the craziness that occurred over the summer I ran out of my stash of ready photos, then with all the traveling that occurred in the fall I was unable to catch up, never mind get ahead. I put quite a bit of time into selecting my…
