I’m off to Holland and Belgium early tomorrow morning; Holland first and then Brussels for a few days on my way back to Paris. I booked my train ticket months ago, a First Class seat on the Thalys fast-speed train. I love train travel, it’s very relaxing. I’ve got my brand new JBL wireless, noise-cancelling headphones for the trip allowing me to read my book undisturbed (East West Street by Philippe Sands.) I’ve also got my ticket, pre-purchased online, to the Mauritshuis in The Hague, an art museum which houses mostly Dutch Golden Age paintings.
The other night I took some photos while walking up the rue de Rivoli at 10:30 pm. I’m quite pleased with them! Here they are below. Stay tuned for my blog posts from The Netherlands. Bye for now.
