    I hope you love the rest of Amsterdam as well ;)


    And there's nothing wrong with your head for bringing your gf, especially if you're planning 'to move out there soon'.. :p


    Hello Griffster
    I'm sort of in the same boat as you, been many times and continuing, I'm from the UK as well and also looking to find work and move there.
    Best of luck in your pursuits.

    good luck findin a place to live in amsterdam. it is basically impossible. i went to live and work there last may. didn't work out too well. we had a blast, and got jobs in a cafe but couldn't find anywhere too live, staying in hostels was working out too expensive and there are no long term campsites in amsterdam. so we moved to Haarlem for a while and then to Leiden, which i am returning to next year to do a postgrad. i recommend living in holland but outside amsterdam. my experience has been that these places have all the good things that the dam has too offer, without any of the downsides!

    Its a nightmare Jen.Iv looked at a few places but they are wanting stupid rent like 1500 to 2000 euros a MONTH.endhoven is not much better as Iv looked there to.It needs to be in the Dam area cuz Im a mad Ajax fan.

    Alright Grifffster
    I'm going again on Feb 9th for 4 nights. Like you, getting work is'nt too much of a problem but the rent there is ludicrous. Will probably have to find somewhere out of the city and commute in to start with, but once there other opportunities will sure to crop up.
    Fingers crossed.

    Hey Nem.
    Thats the way I think Im going to have to do it,with the prices so high anybody would think you were after a 5 million pound penthouse in Chelsea not a small Pad in Amsterdam.wish I was going in feb,got 3 months to wait til its DAM time again.
