          What else can be said about this hotel that has not already been said! This hotel would have to be one of the best we have ever stayed in. We arrived via taxi from the station and were immediately shown to our room, on the third floor with a French balcony as I had requested by email. The room was not huge, but considerably larger than the one we had had in Paris. There was a large, very comfortable, bed, a large desk, a wardrobe, and easy chair and double glazed French doors to the French balcony overlooking the Herengracht canal. There was a small, but extremely functional bathroom with a great shower.

          The best part of Banks Mansion is the wonderful staff. They are just so incredibly helpful with any request, no matter no large or small. We also loved the all inclusive factor. Everything in the mini bar is complimentary, although I think we only had a bottle of water on one occasion, and there are also decanters of whisky, gin and cognac in the room. The bar setup downstairs in the lobby, known as "The Living" is fantastic. It is available at all times, but we really only went in the evenings when from 5pm to 8pm there are wines and cheeses available. It is just so relaxing to help yourself to a glass of wine and some Dutch cheese or salami and to have a chat to other tourists from countries all around the world.

          Each evening after dinner, we could help ourselves to an espresso coffee and a Baileys Irish Cream and either have them in The Living or take them back upstairs. It was absolutely wonderful and so nice to not have to worry about the room bill at the end of the stay.

          Breakfast is also included as part of the all inclusive policy and cannot be faulted. There is a large range of cold meats, cheeses, breads and pastries as well as cereals, juices and fresh fruits. As well as that there is an incredibly efficient egg chef who cooks eggs, pancakes or French toast to order, together with bacon and sausages. There is another automatic espresso machine for delicious coffee.

          DVDs are available at no charge from reception, wifi is fantastic and also included, and there are even a few Ipads in the living if you can't be bothered bringing your own or your laptop down with you.

          If we ever go back to Amsterdam, we would not consider staying anywhere else. It is truly excellent.

          I had intended to write an entry in this blog every night of
          the trip; however I was too tired at the beginning of the stay in Amsterdam and
          too busy once I caught up on my sleep. I am currently sitting on a train, on my
          way to Berlin. We spent four nights in Amsterdam, and we had a great time.

          In the morning we enjoy our first beach sunbathing of the travels so far. Hopefully, there will be much more of this to come. We then set off towards Rotterdam, but when we hit traffic on the A4, we decide to stop at a motorway stop, sunbathe and go to Rotterdam in the morning.

As the cafe was located on a corner, it seemed we watched all of Amsterdam go by, mainly by bike, just waiting for an accident. After our lunch, our next stop on the list, Lighting Displays. It was just dumb luck that we were in Amsterdam during the Amsterdam Light Festival, even though Adam didn't say anything about it to me. There was art work placed around the ...

Large groups of creepy old men or young guys on summer break from school would seem normal for an area such as this. But we saw plenty of couples, groups of young girls, and even a few families while we briskly passed the alleyways. I guess the majority of visitors are just curious tourists and not so much window shopping ...

          Followed Sheila's directions to the letter and she took us right to the check-in booth at the (Euro) tunnel. From then on it was just follow the groove and wait for "First Call". Having a few minutes to spare we picked up some take away coffee and on return followed the long winding road. Quite weird really. You literally drive into a train. After many admonitions and instructions on what to do if the train caught fire or the tunnel caved in, ...
