Hi all, Have just spent the weekend in Amsterdam and am heading back to London later today. No longer have to use Euro, back to pounds and back to where they speak english - or at least a version of it. Had a huge day on Saturday. Got up at 5 to make it to the train. Couldn't really sleep on the train as I ahd many stops along the way where I was actually switching trains. Thankfully all the trains were on time and I managed to make it onto the correct on each time. Stopped for three hours in Amersfoort which is where my Great Great Uncle is buried. Walked for about half an hour, out of town even, to make it to the cemetery. The old one which the web site had said. ... read more

So I have made it to Germany. Had a pretty nice day of travelling yeasterday, even though I was very tired at the end of the day after three flights and very little sleep the night before departure. And then Moderaterna won the Swedish election, and there will be a change of government!! What a nice day!! Had a great stay at the Radisson Hotel in Frankfurt, what a fantastic hotel!!! It opened in November 2005, so it was brand new and had a really cool design! It is the first time ever I have got a guided tour of the breakfast buffet, but it was needed as the buffet was divided into different rooms. I got my upgrade as well (due to my SAS gold card), I was upgraded to a very large Business class ... read more

Europe » Germany » Berlin » Berlin September 16th 2006 it's been a few days since the last update. We've been to places with no internet access in Germany and in Switzerland internet was 5 swiss francs for 15 minutes and since we only had 12 francs left for updates. It turns out that Switzerland is very expensive. 12 francs gets you 2 small cheeseburgers and 6 nuggets at a Mcdonalds in Bern...and just about nothing anywhere else. So on September 12th we took the trains from Rothenberg to Hohenschwangau which is the land of King Ludwig and his fairy tale castles. We toured both the castles there and stayed in a place with a view of the castle from the balcony. This town was super touristy during the day when swarms of buses pull in but everything shuts down around 6:00. The town ... read more
