Walking Through Amsterdam

Amsterdam / Netherlands | October 31, 2013

After a five-year break from Amsterdam, I was very excited to return for a more civilized stay in the city. During my previous journey I had opted to fly as I wasn’t aware of the great train connections to Amsterdam from London, with the Eurostar and Thalys service. I was pleasantly surprised with the journey and was grateful that I only had to be there half an hour before checking in at St Pancras, rather than a soul destroying two-hour check in at my local airport!

Six days riding the rails, on a culinary adventure

Amsterdam / Antwerp / Belgium / Food / Luxembourg City / The Hague / Wine | October 9, 2013

I start my culinary adventure at London’s rejuvenated St Pancras station and take the Eurostar under the English Channel to Brussels. At Brussels Midi, I transfer onto a local train for a 3 hour journey to Luxembourg, the world’s last remaining Grand Duchy. Here I check in at the Novotel, about 10 minutes walk from the main station.

Amsterdam by train from London

Amsterdam / Netherlands | June 11, 2012

Amsterdam is a city built around its people, in fact the tourist board slogan is I Amsterdam. It doesn’t have an Eiffel Tower, an Empire State Building or a Shard to capture people’s attention (it may be thankful of the latter). What it does have is a free spirit, an undying pride in its civil liberties; a great heritage and community, all of which combine to provide an atmosphere that make it one of the most unique cities of the world.

Amsterdam, Cologne, Luxembourg & the Mosel Valley

Amsterdam / Cologne / Deutsche Bahn / Eurostar / Germany / Luxembourg City / Netherlands / Thalys | August 15, 2011

I had a hectic schedule for this trip, beginning with a 7:30 Eurostar from London and a follow on Thalys at 11:50 to Amsterdam. The Thalys train shortens the journey to Amsterdam by an hour and in my experience it is certainly worth the additional cost. Not only do you arrive in Amsterdam faster, but the train is very comfortable. The cost of an upgrade to first is also very affordable, and comes with lounge access (after signing up for a free membership) and a meal.

Amsterdam / Belgium / Brussels / Germany | February 27, 2010

With the advent of high speed rail travel, visiting Germany’s famous capital Berlin by train is an increasingly popular option, and one Matt and I were keen to explore. Before this however, we decided to take the opportunity to try out the new high speed rail links to the Netherlands, with Brussels to Amsterdam in particular having been reduced to a 1h 53m journey at the start of 2010.
