Another Amsterdam/Netherlands thread.

I'm going to spend a few weeks travelling around there. I was hoping even to find a job for the summer and stay a few months if possible. It's there any site, fb group or message board to find vegan/vegetarian flatmates? I know there's things like that for some other cities, so I'm asking just in case somebody knows.

Also, I'm not really interested in fancy restaurants (tight budget, I'm most likely to follow an imposed 30-bananas-a-day-diet for a few days), but advices on cheap and easily available vegan food are welcome too.

Also any friendly gym to have spare single sessions? A squat rack, a few dumbells and a push up bar would be enough.

Any tip/advice is welcome. Thanks.

It turns out I can't this weekend, as usual. But some good news, I found today a full time job (whoa!), Rijksmuseum area. So, I'll stay a little bit longer and we need to meet eventually no matter what!

By the way. It's a bummer almost all of that fancy "vegetarische" stuff in AJ supermarkets isn't vegan. :roll:

First dutch word I've learned: "ei"

Thats cool, you get to stay in Amsterdam longer :)
.
Once i was roaming around that town and went to the Rijksmuseum for, ofc, the Nightwatch. It was ok, but not as "whoa" as i expected. But than i walked past this one: Image
and i sat down and stared at it. In real it looks just intense. Ive never sat down to look at a painting for longer. Im not that person ;) ....but this one...damn. Maybe its still there...if so...GO THERE! FIND IT! BRING IT TO ME!! ;)

The fries in front of the Main Station are vegan :mrgreen: ...and good. no Eieren ;) ...

Enjoy the time!

Thanks mo! I'll try. I really hope I don't screw this job, my english can be shitty sometimes :roll:

I haven't visited Rijksmuseum yet (shame on me) but sure, I'll grab that one if nobody's watching. It's going to look awesome in your living room!

But first I need to find where to buy tempeh :)
