May 4th 2010 12:52PM I'm far from a gearhead, but I never travel without my noise-cancelling headphones (a Sony pair that cost me about $100 Canadian, which I thought was a splurge!). For the first time, I've been able to hear the in-flight movie! And I wear them all the time on my local city bus, too.
Feb 1st 2009 10:36AM Excellent article! I loved the trams in Amsterdam and always like to see them getting some publicity.
Here's another tip for visitors using Amsterdam's public transit: take a quick ride on tram #26 to the Rietlandpark stop to explore the Amsterdam Docklands (http://www.amsterdamdocklands.com). While it's very close to the city core, this area isn't well known to most North American tourists. It's recently been redeveloped by several leading architects, and it makes a fun modern counterpoint to the historic centre of the city.
