I spent 3 days in Amsterdam visiting D&A, coffeeshops, and just wandering around. Amsterdam is a great city and every time I visit I appreciate it a bit more. It seems that every street in “the pie” (official name: Centrum) has something interesting to see.
Then, an evening Thalys train to Brussels where I spent the night because of mismatched train schedules. This gave me a couple of hours to wander around so I visited the Grand Place, which is indeed grand in both the English and French meanings of the word.
This morning, I boarded my last train: a Eurostar to London St.
Pancreas Pancras. I suppose technically my last train was actually a London Underground train to the airport. And now I’m on a plane! 1908 km to home, and we’re moving faster than any passenger train ever has :)

I guess the people who built the high speed line were proud of it. And maybe some politicians… the rest of us are just hoping that one day they’ll get around to building some more.
Welcome home :-)
Makes sense :) Hey, at least you have the one you have!
