Hello to everyone on the forum! I have scrolled through all 10 pages of the forum in search of my question but havn't quite found it! I'm going to Amsterdam on the 5th January with a friend - my birthday present to him! Neither of us have done weed before, yet we are both open minded and have been told that no trip to amsterdam is complete without sampling the coffee shop culture. Again we are not big nightclub goers, but wouldnt mind seeing what it's like in amsterdam! However i'm only 19 and hes 20. We dont look particulary old, but have never had problems in England (due to the fact I think we prefer quiet local pubs!) Obviosuly we have our passports, but with all the pickpockets in the RLD and such, and plus if one of us were to drink one too many and loose it.... I think its too risky carrying a Passport arround! He has a driving liscence so he's fine, but I havnt even applied for a provisional driving liscence (never needed one...) So cutting to the chase, if I photocopy my passport (which I always do anyway incase I loose it - as recommended by holida insurers) will they accept a photocopy? I have an old NUS card from when I was in 6th form, but havnt been issued with a new one. Would really appreciate some insight on the matter! Cheers guys!
