Not as big as the last adventure but thought this epic cycle through at least five countries was probably worth a little blogging. Today started in Leicestershire, train to London, included a scary ride between two London stations and several frankly bizarre train delays. My favourite of these was "ladies and gentlemen, this train has been delayed at Chelmsford by a passenger trapped in the toilet." I'm sure very frightening for the individual in question, who was no doubt relieved to have their problem shared with the whole train.
Anyway, eventually got to Harwich for the ferry to Hook of Holland, not far from Rotterdam. It is pretty cool having a cabin on the ferry, feels a little like being in an Agatha Christie novel. It will be even more exciting to wake up and arrive in another country. For now, It's getting late and I need to learn at least please, thank you and sorry in Dutch before bed, so more updates another time.
