re: Thoughts on Antwerp? - purpgold718
I'm well aware that Antwerp is part Flanders; which if you'll read is a big reason for me wanting to go there. I'm a bit of a polyglot and linguaphile, so different regional varieties, slang, accents and dialects of languages fascinate me. In this case the distinction between Nederlands and Vlaam...

re: Thoughts on Antwerp? - purpgold718
Hamburg and Köln would be options for DE. Paris has some appeal to, but I be poor at the moment and the only mode of transit I could afford would be the shitty eurolines bus, which is a fricking haul and a half in journey time, each way. Plus the gf has already been there a lot too. The likeli...

re: Thoughts on Antwerp? - purpgold718
Yeah I've heard good things about Groningen. But I don't know, I guess I wanted to get out of NL, particularly to Flanders. Ironically to speak Nederlands (or 'vlaams') to see how my Amsterdam accented Dutch holds up, or can at least be aided with several biertjes! Brugge is out of the quest...

re: Thoughts on Antwerp? - purpgold718
Yeah well this isn't my first go around in Europe, to say the least. Also I live "in the area" (Benelux), so it couldn't hurt to check out. I really want to do Ghent but it's the extra travel time keeping me at bay, because that means if the gf and I are gonna go all that way we'll definitely wa...

re: Thoughts on Antwerp? - purpgold718
Yeah, it's only 40 euro roundtrip on the train which isn't too bad, considering it's a 2 hour, 20 minute journey each way. I really wanna go to Ghent, but that would be 60 roundtrip, and add another hour, and 15 minutes of travel time each way; so there's that to consider. Anybody done both G...

Thoughts on Antwerp? - purpgold718
Anyone ever been? I have a few days off from work and was thinking about taking the train into Belgium for either a day, or one night trip. Thoughts on the city? Is it at least better than Brussels? Note: I don't wanna go to Brussels, I've already been, it's not bad by any stretch (it's still ...

He doesn't drink, and he really hates homeless people ...oh and also the smell of weed. So it's a good thing he's getting the frick out of that liberal cesspool Seattle and heading to a place like Portland, where that type of shite is [u]not okay![/u]...

re: Best Cities to Travel to in Europe - purpgold718
Barcelona for sure has the best nightlife. I lived there for 6 months, some of the best 6 months ever. I would say there's only two places on par, Berlin which does have the craziest vibe in the actual clubs (blatant copulation and drug use on the dance floor). However it loses to BCN because the ...

re: The Running Of The Bulls - purpgold718
Ok someone clarify is this about the real deal 'el encierro' de la fiesta de San Fermin, in Pamplona, Spain. Or is this about that sad excuse they have with a bunch of roller-derby, pushing people over? The former I have done, and it is definitely, world-class bucket list status. If you make in i...

re: First Camp Resort for Pot Users in Colorado - purpgold718
The conservative regime in power now has by and large adopted a more anti-cannabis stance. In Maastricht and other towns in the Southern provinced wietpas (weedpass) allowing only residents/citizens have been implemented to curb the flow of buy and fly drug tourists flocking en mass from BE, FR and...

re: First Camp Resort for Pot Users in Colorado - purpgold718
I think I may live in one of the few accommodation settings in the world where I am 100% permitted to smoke in my place of residence. I live in Amsterdam, and while weed is actually tolerated rather that fully legalized (as many of you probably well know). Anyway because I live in international stu...

re: Anyone Here Remember Harry Mokeba from PoliSci @ LSU? - purpgold718
I took comparative politics of East Asia with Wonik Kim and comparative politics of Africa with Mokeba. How fitting, both great professors who ended up writing recommendations on my behalf for my current enrollment at a master's at the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA). Also Eubanks was my first...
