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 :)
