    I would love to visit Amsterdam.  Amsterdam is probably the party capitol of the world.  I'd love to go and be smashed in the streets.  I want to go and have the most incredible time of my life.  And I want everyone to come with me!

    Many people think of Amsterdam as some place special. I'm sure it is, but since I was raised knowing about it it's not so special for me. It's not like I go there every day, but every once in a while it's a nice place to go shopping or things like that. It's less than an hour by...

    Amsterdam Spice
