A few months ago i started the Amsterdam Bucketlist
with the aim to write '365 things to do before leaving the country'.
#2. Enjoy the swing at the inner courtyard of the Pullitzer.
#6. Surprise your lover with croissants from Le Fournil.
#8. Have a lunch at Blue 360.
#11 Get your jazzy vitamins at jazz bar Cafe Alto.
#15. Bike along the Amstel.
#16 . Eat a freshly made, warm stroopwafel at the Cuypmarket.
I'm now at #45 which was 'experience Museumnight' (Last saturday).
I need more inspiration and am curious to learn about your 'amsterdam bucketlist'.
@ Canuckywoman - you're right, Amsterdam isn't a country. My blog however, focuses only at Amsterdam, and there should be 365 things to do here in this town?
I'm the wrong person to ask! I'd say take a train to Maastricht!
@ Mischief it's best to check the bucket list online (trust this link works)... www.lifeinamsterdam.com/bucketlist
This is so annoying - the reply thing never seems to work first time for me, I have to go back and edit it. Anyway...
Yes, I saw the link - as I said, I'm planning to read it properly later (when I'm not at work :)).

@Mischief - I now know who to turn to when I have a techy-question! Hope to see you at the drinks next week?
Yep, I'll be there, with a friend. Did you get my emails? One of them was about what time the event's supposed to be starting - the Expatica listing says 7pm, but the Facebook page says 8pm (or the other way around, I can't remember just now).
The other mail I sent was about spam on lifeinamsterdam.com - you should go prune the comments!
Nopes -didn't get your mails. Start of drinks is 7pm (will check FB pages), but you can arrive whenever you wish. And ah... those comments... I do the spam-checking it on a weekly basis.
PS (2 minutes later): WOOHAA there's been indeed a spam attack! it's a first. thanks for telling me, mischief
I love your Amsterdam bucket list! You should put it up on Wanderable! I'm currentlyw orking on my own online bucket list on Wanderable where it's great cause people tend to share all sorts of tips and ideas. Worth a look! Next time I go to Amsterdam, will definitely keep a few of those in mind! =)
