We could very easily have caught a one hour flight from Berlin to Amsterdam. But we always do that: fly! We have very rarely (and never together) caught a train to get from one destination to another. So we decided to travel the old fashioned way. It was a six hour train ride through some fairly unexciting, though (to a desert-dweller like me) still gorgeous, countryside. Very green countryside. That’s actually one of the things I miss the most living in Dubai, so when I visit a more fertile country, I try to drink it all in.
Approaching Amsterdam I started to feel the way I always do coming to this city. Happy!!! I love this place and would live here in a heartbeat, if I could. People often ask me what it is about Amsterdam that I love so much. It’s hard to put into words, but perhaps I’ll be able to show you over the next ten days.
