2 Weeks to go ... I am really excited about my next trip to Amsterdam. I just love this city, a heady mix of cultures divided into 90 islands linked by picturesque bridges. Speaking about the friends, I am really sad for not beeing able to meet frankti, who is not there during the TechEd. He is one of my best friends and also one of the greatest guys I ever met. He is surely the major reason why I like Amsterdam so much. I am staying at Dikker and Thijs Fenice Hotel located in the heart of the ancient city on the beautiful Prinsengracht Canal, at the corner of  the Leidsestraat. Great place with a beautiful view over the canal, colorful and alive by day and romantic by night. Sometimes I wish to live there.

If you are asking yourself how to make the most of a TechEd - Tim Sneath posted some great tips and also published an extract of the current session database.

And last but not least, here are my tips for "must visit" places ;-)

  1. Rijksmuseum
    Stadhouderskade 42 (674 70 47)
    By far the largest museum in the Netherlands, housed in a monumental neo-renaissance building designed by PJH Cuypers.
  2. Begijnhof
    Just off Amsterdam's main shopping allee you'll find the Begijnhof, a secluded court of almshouses with a quiet innergarden and the English Reformed Church in their midst.
  3. Chez Georges
    Herenstraat 3 (626 33 32).
    Lavish and delicious cooking by Belgian chef-patron Georges Roorda in his intimate Jordaan restaurant. Excellent service.
  4. Bimhuis
    Oude Schans 73-77 (623 13 61).
    Internationally renowned contemporary jazz venue. Stages well-known international artists as well as local talent.
  5. INETA BoF session at TechEd
    ...exact room will be published soon ;-)
