We always knew it would be a long day travelling - starting at 11.15 from Vienna and arriving at 21.37 in Brussels 😱. There’s not much to say really - nice countryside, comfy trains, changed in Frankfurt - bit of a surprise there though, and I suppose it had to happen - ENGINEERING WORKS! Yes indeed, the train through to Belgium was diverted, so instead of arriving in Brussels in time for a couple of beers and walk in town, we were now destined to arrive in Brussels at 23.03 😩😩😩😩😩 and even then it was late!

Ah well, thank goodness it was at the end of the trip rather than the beginning, and that we still had a hotel, with a bar, to sleep in. A beer and box of fried chicken and chips later and the day’s travels were a distant memory.

Tomorrow we’re on the 8-52 from Brussels to London then the 11.16 from Euston back home - I hope it will be uneventful !

Reflections on the trip to follow.........
