Travelling in Lockdown – LST-NRW Greater Anglia

So, June 2020, a very strange time in the UK due to Covid-19, and after 10 weeks of living in London, I was finally travelling home in the middle of lockdown. Obviously, this is going to be a slightly different ‘Train Review’ post to normal, but given it was my first time on one of Greater Anglia’s new intercity trains, I decided to still do a review of sorts. I won’t be including the usual rating due to the measures in place as part of the situation.

Amsterdam Spotting

This is the third of three posts I’ve written covering our trip to The Netherlands back in February/March. The first, which you can find here, was all about our visits to two aviation museums and some of Flevoland’s oldest and highest bits of land. The second, here was all about our day in Amsterdam itself, whilst this post has a little bit of exploring the wider Netherlands but is mostly about the various spotting opportunities at Schiphol airport.

Ambling around Amsterdam

This is the second of three posts I’m planning covering our trip to The Netherlands back in February/March. The first, which you can find here, was all about our visits to two aviation museums and some of Flevoland’s oldest and highest bits of land. This post is all about our visit to the Dutch capital itself, whilst the final post will be about spotting at Schiphol airport with a few other bits of The Netherlands thrown in.

A Dutch Day Out

Back at the end of February I was lucky enough to spend a few days in and around the Dutch capital. Essentially the visit was split into three, with our first full day spent visiting aviation museums with a bit of additional exploring in the evening; the second spent exploring Amsterdam; and our final day spent visiting a bit more of The Netherlands and spotting at Schiphol. I’ve decided that essentially, I’m going to split my blogs in the same manner and so this is the first of three posts covering my Dutch adventures.
