Up early to catch the train in Lugano
But not too early for the Swiss army cadets to be enjoying a beer (or several)...
As we enjoy scenic views of Lake Lucerne from the train window.
In a park near Zurich Hauptbahnhof I meet 'Amigo', the first WFT I've seen since leaving the UK.
We change trains again in Frankfurt,
Where we are reminded of home.
After an overnight stay in Utrecht,
We say hi to a furry fellow passenger on the Sunday morning train to Amsterdam.
Gail and I are both by now feeling a little travel weary
But we are encouraged by seeing this poster.
At IJmuiden we say goodbye to continental Europe
And take the overnight ferry across the North Sea to Newcastle
Where I am less than impressed with my accommodation.
Monday morning in Newcastle and I am too tired to go exploring (yes really!)
Finally, late afternoon, we're home sweet home in Aberdeen.
What a wonderfully brilliant trip!
