24 to 26 August London to Amsterdam

Spent Wednesday monring in the market in St Albans doing a bit of shopping. Went back to Pauline and Stephen's and sorted out our bags for the next day. Had a great BBQ that evening with minted lamb chops from the Bok and Rose, the SA butcher in St Albans. Finished off the evening sitting around the firepit, chilling.

Thursday morning up early and on the train to London with Pauline. Said our sad goodbyes to Pauline and Stephen, really looked after us like royalty. Hope it won't be another 4 years before we see each other. Check in at St Pancras Station for the Eurostar which would take us through the chunnel to Calais and then to Brussels. Good trip on the train and had lunch in Brussels before boarding the high speed train to Amsterdam. Cees met us at Schipol station and took us over to Yvonn for dinner and then we went to Zandamm beach for an evening stroll and an ice cream to finish off the evening. Cees brought us back to his flat where we are spending our nights while here in Amsterdam.

Friday morning we had abit of a lie in and then went to Cees for breakfast which was great. From there we went into the morning market thebiggest market I have ever seen, lots of great stalls. Did a bit of shopping and stopped off for coffee. Martin and Teresa arrive tonight, looking forward to seeing them again.
