Mention Holland and everyone thinks of Amsterdam, clogs and cannabis. But there’s so much more to discover and enjoy. My teacup and I visited three very different cities in The Netherlands: Rotterdam, Nijmegen and of course, Amsterdam.
Holland is one of the few countries where it’s (almost) legal to use cannabis. More than a third of visitors to Amsterdam check out a coffeeshop while in the city. Inevitably, you might find yourself considering doing the same. But does that mean you should light up?
Europe has a fabulous cafe culture. Just think of Paris where sitting at small table, sipping an espresso and watching the world go by is a thing! I love discovering great cafes when I travel. Here are some of my favourite finds.
Pot, Grass, Weed, Bud, Dope, Mary Jane, THC, 420 – It doesn’t matter what you call it, cannabis is BIG business in The Netherlands. But the country isn’t the “drug haven” it’s thought to be. In fact, most assumptions made about Holland and drug use are a little off base.
