    Luggage and bags: Tourists are often easy targets for pickpockets. Make sure your bags don't make this too easy!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A warm jacket is definately needed in winter, it can get pretty cold and windy. Umbrella's are sold on every corner, should you need one.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Etos, Bijenkorf and Hema sell just about anything you may need. Medical supplies can be found at the pharmacist (apotheek), often after a doctor's prescription. Bringing medication from home can prevent you from having to see a Dutch doctor (apart from emergencies of course!).

    Photo Equipment: No need to bring stuff, you can get everything here at a reasonable price. Try Albert Heijn, Blokker or Hema for films and developing, they are a lot cheaper than the photoshops on Damrak and Rokin. Developing and printing 24 photo's will cost you about 7 euro's (about $6). Takes a few days then.

  • Medications and First Aid Kit

    Luggage and bags: Small Wheeled trolley suitcase

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Usual plus my umbrella

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: When I travel to Amsterdam I am never without my first aid/medicine kit. Medications such as Sudafed or Tylenol Cold which some can find anywhere without a prescription in their home countries are by prescription only in The Netherlands and a lot of other countries also.

    Bring meds with you, nothing can ruin a trip or cut into your travel budget faster than a cold or infection.
