Travel Feature with Andy Jarosz

Andy Jarosz was in the studio telling us about the sights and sounds of Amsterdam. He wanted to tell us Holland has to offer other than activities that are usually associated with a rowdy stag do.

There's something to interest the nature loving tourists as Hollands tulips are world renowned. For the historians it's also steeped in history of the 18th and 19th century. You can visit the Anne Frank House and see where she wrote her diary whilst hiding from the Nazis. You can also visit the Van Gogh Museum and see the largest  collection of his stunning work.

You don't have to fly (thought it take only about 45 mins by plane!) you can also go by train which is about 4 1/2 hours or by boat.

Copenhagen is also worth a look. It's rated one of the best cities to live in. Again there is lots of historical to visit and the habour is site to be hold. It's also for famous for sea food but notoriously expensive as well.

Andy also went on to talk about the social etiquette of haggling for souvenirs.  Haggling can be quite common in counties with a low earning population, it's not something done in the western culture and done carefully it can be a rewarding experience for both retailer and customer. It's important to research local area for how valuable such an item can be. It can be make sure both sides win. It's also important to remember it's their lively hood.
