... males with about 8 younger women in flat shoes and no makeup!!!!? What on earth was was going on here! At another, a group of Italian Mafia bosses sat with glamorous ladies taking photos of each other and jabbering away on their mobiles to South American drug cartel leaders........ I was also not convinced that our Costa Rican waitress really understood the pre-rehearsed blurb she was delivering on the wine and food. Despite all this, it is ...
... decided not to lash out on diamonds as waiting to buy gold in Turkey! Ended the tour at the house where Anne Frank hid from the Nazis for two years with 7 others including her parents and sister. It brought home so graphically the tragedy of war and the persecution of the Jews. We could see an example of her writing - so neat and tidy expressing her thoughts and feelings as well as observations of the turmoil of her world. She ...
... item of clothing and footwear I own will be considered at great length before making a decision. In my case, with a wardrobe that cannot host both my summer and winterclothes at the same time, and an (as per the last estimation) collection of 80+ pairs of shoes, this is shaping up to become a task of monstrous proportions.
But I have a whole weekend, so I am diving in head first!
Some things to consider... The first destinations of my trip: Egypt, ...
... joint first in the Robinson's favourite Dutch list of places, Delft definitely deserves a mention. For a start, Delft Blue pottery has been world famous since about 1670...if you have not heard of it, you would definitely recognise it....blue and white, although they did branch out into red, blue and gold and it would seem they have now branched out into street furniture, which is pretty unique. It is quite a "wow" factor when you ...
... to note from Gerard: the bikes cost about 7E a day to rent for a day in Leiden and the bike place is open from 5am to 2 am. The bike place is on the other side of the train station in the newer part of town. We're going to Bruges, Ghent, and Antwerp tomorrow. We'll be there Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

TravelPod Member ReviewsIbis Leiden Centre
Comfort and ease of travel are two words I would describe for this hotel. Located right across from the train station, it was a welcome sight after a long day on the train. And once there, the room was clean and comfortable with plenty of options for room service despite the late hour. Free Wi-fi was also available for me to catch up on my daily tasks.
Getting to Keukenhof Gardens from there was a snap, as the bus leaves right from the train station. And once back after visiting the gardens, I was able to take a nice stroll around town.
