2006 - First Backpacking Trip - Day 1

Day 1:

Arrived in Schipol airport and took the IC train to Amsterdam Centraal.

Found our place at the Flying Pig Uptown, and I love it so far. Writing from the bar in the hostel where everyone is having a good time, drinking and smoking. There is a large place to sit, people are preparting, rolling, smoking everyone in here. Even the wallpaper in the rooms are covered in hemp leaf designs and there are pictures all over the walls of smoking. Went to Bulldog last night. Great music, ambiance, and split a space cake with four people and tried a puff of a blunt. Met everyone staying in the room. Hostels are a great place to meet and hang out with people. We went out in a group of 8 to have fun. For dinner, we had wine, etc. We had a total of 3 bottles of wint at about 1.5 euros each before going out, and a bailies hot chocolate at the bar here. Very happening place. Our room is right beside the bar, and all though the night you can hear people conversing and music from the bar. I love it here so far, and look forward to more fun.
