    Carting the bike across Schipol wasn't too bad, apart from setting the security alarm off after baggage reclaim. They don't make doorways big enough for bike boxes in schipol! Nice day spent wondering around Amsterdam. Flight to Chile was delayed for an hour as they couldn't disconnect the air ...

For me quite a sorry sight, looking lost and forgotten almost, though I guess during the day it is well visited. Again, nothing like I anticipated - much smaller.
