Easily accessible, because on most trains, Schiedam is en route to Rotterdam (which is the next station).
Amsterdam-Schiedam, twice per hour weekdays. I've done the trip countless times, your question brings back memories!

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Tap Water......Its good for you!!

by paddymc09

Backpackers101- A lesson that was learned while me and my brother were out on a lash in Holland! Since me & my brother were so stoned all the time we never really got into what Holland was really about, but while my brother was out one morning he was buying a bottle of water from the shop and some guy says why are you doing that ? well it turns out he was wasting money because the tap water is better then bottle water. Very clean and taste great. For any american who might read this it was like drinking Polland Spring.....and that *** is goood. Being free from the police state that I was raised in! Being able to smoke cronic and see cool stuff, getting beer from the vending machine.....being a crazy young kid in a place a lot of people will only dream about!

Walk around and take a canal...

by Katirose

Walk around and take a canal tour. There are more bridges in Amsterdam than in Venice. The buildings are narrow and pitched forward, some are leaning to the right or left. Be sure to notice how different one is from the next. Trying to cross the street admist bikes, cars, trams, and people that know where they are going. Giggling through the Sex Museum is fun as well.

facades, neck-gable

by tompt

The facades come in many different forms in Amsterdam. But espcially along the canals there are some great examples to be found.

In the picture are neck-gables (1640 – 1770)
Made in the 17th century and can be recognised by the two angles of 90 degrees. The corners have decorations of various motives. The neck-gable was built throughout the 18th century.

Lekker Pannekoeken (Dutch Pancakes)

by isolina_it

Pannekoeken
Ingredients:
500 gr wheat flour
1 l milk
4 medium eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tblsp oil
1 tsp sugar
It can be hand mixed or put in a blender. For a blender, combine all ingredients and blend. Hand method: Put flour in a bowl, make a little hole in the middle. Pour in some milk in the hole and start stirring. gradually pour in all milk, making a smooth batter. mix in the eggs, one by one, add salt, sugar and oil and mix again until the batter is smooth and not lumpy. The pancakes should be baked in a large wide frying pan (a french crepe pan is ok too) preferably in butter (or oil, if you don't like cholesterol). The butter should be very hot. Pour in some batter (about 2 or 3 tabelspoons) and bake. Turn the pancake when the upper surface is dry and bake the reverse side for approx. the same amount of time.
You can use anythind you like as a filling, use your imagination. Savoury pizzatype fillings are nice and can be put on top of the pancake after it's baked.
Classic fillings are bacon and syrup pancakes and apple pancakes. For the baconpancakes you have to fry the bacon first and then pour over the batter. They are served with dutch syrup, which has a thicker consistancy than american syrup.
Apple pancakes the same : first bake some fine chunks of apple and pour over the batter. These pancakes are great with applesyrup, but syrup or sugar and cinnamon will do as well I reckon. Above is the receipe of dutch pancakes. Wherever you come from, once being in the Netherlands please dont miss famous dutch Pancakes. I definitely love them, dutch people can make them so soft and pleasant to your tastes, either with ham and cheese or with nice dutch syrups.The above receipe is just for your knowledge as i tried to do myself and I dont take I will ever get to make so nice ones...;), anyway..try and good luck!
