Today is a travel day. Up at 3:15am, catch the 4:00am train to Gatwick, and then a 6:45 flight to Amsterdam. Once on the ground we boarded a train for Amersfoot, changed trains there and headed to Deventer. Another change of trains and we were bound for Zwolle. A final change in Zwolle and we were on our way to Groningen. The changes between trains required us to be quick on our feet as the longest changeover time was just 5 minutes!
The trains were all packed so we ended up standing in the aisle, surrounded by our bags – not fun for three hours, especialy after the late night and early morning we’d just experienced.
We’re now in Groningen at our hotel. The weather is great and the city looks wonderful but we are too tired to explore it right now. Showers and naps are the next items on our agendas.
