When You Travel: Try cheese sandwiches in Amsterdam airport

August 18, 2012 |

Last week I was on my way back to the US from a fun trip to Siberia (Russia). Let me share with you a few observations which you may find interesting and useful. When you flight domestically, the ubiquitous standard turkey sandwich, made of bleached wheat flour, is chasing you everywhere from LAX to ATL to BOS.

At Dutch Kitchen Bar & Cocktails near the Lounge 3 you can try a variety of teas sitting back in an intimate unit decorated as a tea-cup:

Key elements in the image of Bread! are purity and honesty and this is reflected in the range of their products.

Bread! cafe is a central feature of Lounge 3I have enjoyed eating this cheese sandwich (one on the front) with a glass of a Merlot at the night time:

Another place I visited was Dutch souvenir shop where I have bought a pair of beautiful Dutch clogs ($22) for my beautiful granddaughter:
