Last days in Brussels

BELGIUM | Thursday, 14 Jul 2011 | Views [550]

It was only an hour on the train to Brussels, and I managed to negotiate the subway easily enough to my next hostel. Hello Hostel is a nice change from the last one – big, open, light room with a small kitchen but nice dining ... Read more >

Boating in Bruges

BELGIUM | Tuesday, 12 Jul 2011 | Views [449]

Bloody i-touch! Somehow it managed to reset itself back to London time which is an HOUR BEHIND Germany. My train left at 10:30am and I realised this at 10am…and it was a 30min walk to the train station. I threw my gear in my bag and realised ... Read more >

Beaches and Fireworks

GERMANY | Thursday, 7 Jul 2011 | Views [369]

I was sad to leave Berlin as I’d met a great bunch of people, and I hadn’t really done much of the “tourist” stuff, but it was time to head down to Cologne. Coincidentally, Heath was flying there on the same day to meet a friend and arrived ... Read more >

Baxpaxing in Berlin

GERMANY | Saturday, 2 Jul 2011 | Views [560]

I arrived in Berlin after a long train trip from Copenhagen, the most exciting part of which was when the entire train drove aboard the ferry and we were able to disembark to sit up in the ferry café for the 40 minute crossing.... Read more >

Delightful Denmark

DENMARK | Tuesday, 28 Jun 2011 | Views [562]

It was a long trip down to Copenhagen. We left at 7am and after only 45 minutes on the train we had to change to another train and then onto a bus to Gotenburg due to an accident on the line. I finally arrived in Copenhagen mid-... Read more >

Fjords & Bonfires in Bergen

NORWAY | Wednesday, 22 Jun 2011 | Views [769]

My ticket directed me to the "family car" of the train to Bergen where I was the only passenger. I was a bit worried that I'd caught the wrong train until the ticket collector came through and put my mind at rest! There had been a fire ... Read more >

Out and About in Oslo

NORWAY | Sunday, 19 Jun 2011 | Views [613]

I had to get up stupidly early to catch the 6 hour train to Oslo, where I walked the 15 minutes to Anker Hostel . Once again it is more of a “hotel” feel than a hostel, with a large waiting room, no kitchen but a hotplate in the dorm room, and very ... Read more >
