Another pleasant rail journey – with a dining car and very comfortable seats the 5+ hours just seemed to fly by.  Amsterdam station is historic (see photo of exterior) but very modern and efficient inside.  We were able to walk to our B&B which was one of the quirkier places we’ve stayed (we like staying at historically interesting places – see photo)…a former warehouse with the lovely breakfast room/shared space on the top floor.  Our room was quite spacious – again up many steps (no lift) so you need average fitness although there was a  young man working there who carried our luggage up for us.
