AMS! I have always loved Schiphol going back to the 1960's when I was a child. The airport is a destination in itself. On my last trip to <acronym title="Amsterdam - Schiphol (AMS / EHAM), Netherlands">AMS</acronym> in 2009 I spent the good portion of a day wandering around shopping at the landside ...Jump to post

I remember my Dad smoking cigars & pipes on all of our trans Atlantic flights in the 1960's and early 1970's. I remember once being in the middle seat on an IB DC-8 JFK-LPA with my Mom puffing her Pall Malls and my dad alternating between his disgusting cigars and pipes. That was when I decided ...Jump to post
I thoroughly enjoyed your report and the great photos. Alex is a seasoned traveler and seems so well behaved. Looking foward to part 3!
Alex (Yup, I'm an Alex too!)
Your report was quite enjoyable and the photos were very nice. I was in the AF/KL lounge in ORD last year and it wasn't as nice as LAX lounge. Also all the reading materials were only French publications. No Dutch or American mags or papers. Which delft house did you pick?
I enjoyed reading this trip report as well as all of your other reports. Please continue to write them!
Every year at Passover time I stock up on the "Kosher for Passover" Coca-Cola which is made with real sugar. Living in Minnesota this can be difficult as there are only a few stores that carry this product. It tastes so much better than the regular Coke. I am in NYC right now and have seen the K4P C...Jump to post
You might want to look into staying at the Vanderbilt YMCA if you're on a budget. I stayed centrally locatedonce about 20+ years ago and it was clean, had cable tv and lots of pretty European girls staying there. The only drawbacks were that you had to go down the hall to use the toilet and shower. ...Jump to post
I enjoyed reading your report. Last week @ AMS I waited 45 minutes for my luggage after arriving on KL612 and clearing immigration in 30 seconds!
She started with KLM in 1952 in New York . When I was a kid growing up she was in cargo sales and eventually became cargo marketing manager. If I remember correctly she moved over to passenger marketing manager before retiring in 1992. This was about the time that <acronym title="Northwest Airlines ...Jump to post
I asked for a window seat and was allocated 2K on the lower deck. My first time up front on a 747! I will definitely be spending time up on the Panorama Terrace with my camera.

I read your report with extreme interest as I will be taking the same two <acronym title="KLM Royal Dutch Airlines">KL</acronym> flights as you did in Business Class later this month. It was a very well written and put together report. I'm glad to know what to expect. Where in the terminal is Plane'...Jump to post

I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in July '07 and underwent 6 months of intense chemo therapy. My oncologist gave it only a 30% chance of success and told me to get my affairs in order. I decided that I was going to beat the cancer or at least go down swinging. I have been in remission since ...Jump to post

I was just in Toronto 2 weeks ago and stayed at the Royal York Hotel. It's a nice place for an older hotel. We were upgraded to a suite because our room wasn't ready. Previously (years ago) stayed at the Bond Place Hotel and as I recall that while the rooms were on the smaller side it was quite clea...Jump to post
I went to the same high school as Estelle (Seward Park H.S.) on the lower east side of Manhattan, albeit many years apart. In it's early days Seward produced quite an array of actors including Zero Mostel, Joe E. Ross and Jerry Stiller to name a few.
How awful! For the rest of their lives, your brother and his wife will remember that your dad was not at their wedding. Does your dad regret not going? He was one stubborn man who always thought that he was right no matter what. He didn't come to my wedding either but he wasn't invited as we did not...Jump to post
Sort of. See, I am Jewish, and religion is based upon the mother. I wouldn't want my kids growing up not sure of which religion they are.

When I saw your photo of Madison Square Garden I said to myself, oh no he stayed at the Pennsylvania! That is one hotel that seriously needs to be imploded. The hotel was in the news last year for having a bed bug infestation. I did enjoy your report and the photos.Jump to post
