Joan, there's a lady in the window!

... the next train, and arrived with 8 minutes to get the next. So far Belgium have had the worst train services. Never mind though, we got there eventually, had a good munch, and Peter and Joan got longer in bed before meeting us! We arrived at the Mövenpick hotel a little early, but figured we'd chance our room being ready and if not then we'd leave the bags in the luggage room for a couple hours. Turns out this hotel is in a different league to the budget hotels ...

... flanked by two similar paintings from the same era painted by lesser artists. It does not take much critical sensibiliity to see why Rembrandt's is the masterpiece. Yvonne walks us 'through' a number of other Rembrandts including the 'Dutch Masters' , two Vermeers, a Hals or two and the Rijksmuseum's two Van Goghs. We are exhausted, but would would stay with pleasure if the museum weren't closing. It was an exhausting and wonderful day. I took 400 pictures.

... big. The equivalent of Gatwick or Heathrow. It seemed to take miles for me to walk to the baggage hall to collect my rucksack. I thought I'd missed it! From there I went into the train terminal and managed to buy a train ticket to Centraal Station. I find it funny on international trains as you get on and then you have the option to walk upstairs or downstairs. I chose upstairs for the novelty value! Arriving in Amsterdam, there are three things you first notice: ...

... see the whitecaps in the ocean at one point but being from cold Canada, we thought we were looking at fields of snow! We also had clear skies over the Sahara Desert. Sand forever! It just goes on and on. We spotted one surprising feature. We could see miles of perfect rows of large circles, of varying colours. Guesses are de-salination ponds, or irrigated crops or something to do with ...

... walking down every alleyway by the hundreds. It seemed more dodgy during the day, simply from the amount of people who were there at night just for a peak. We also tasted apple tart from Winkel 43 and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who goes to Amsterdam, it was simply delicious!! Our stay in Amsterdam was enjoyable, and we were spoilt with such perfect weather. Not somewhere I'd hurry back to (I think I preferred Copenhagen) but glad we've seen ...

    Hotel ok, but unbearable showers mean cannot recommend this place

    Rooms were small, but ok for what we wanted, I would have given this place 4 stars due to price and location, but the showers make this impossible to rate highly. They are clean, but either ice cold or boiling hot, no inbetween. we tried different floors but no joy. ruined what would have been a reasonable place, i have had better water temperature in 75p hostels.
