hey guys, in the next month or 2 i will be getting about $3500 as part of my inheritance from my grandmother. im wanting to use this money on something fun instead of just spending it on some useless bunk i probably don't/will never need.

how hard would it be to do a trip to amsterdam on that or say even $2500?

how do i get a passport? how much will it cost? when will i get it?

how much should a plane ticket (round trip) cost if i fly out of Denver Co, or Wichita Ks?

whats a cheap (CLEAN!) hotel in the city? is it close to the airport? is it close to a coffee shop?

is there a city taxi service i can use to get around or will i have to get a map and ride the bus?

how should i handle my vacation money? travelers checks? prepaid visas?


keep in mind this would be my very first overseas trip and i'd like to stay for about a week. any usefull info you guys have just post it here.

I had a visa with $500 on it, but if you can just bring your debit card there are ATMs in a lot of places

But there's a lot of useless shit I regret buying :)

$2500 is plenty for one person on a budget (for 4/5 days or so). Your money will go fast there, but if you're careful you can do it.

There is also a very good tram service. Or you can rent a bike. It's not a city for driving or taking cabs.


The tram is cheap and it is a great way to move around, also I had only $1000 when I went and I did run out. Stoned impulse buys are really hard to overcome there.
