A Visit to South Yorkshire and East Midlands.

Image
We had a little bit of a change of plans when we left Durham. We were headed to Lincoln, but unfortunately our friends we were due to visit were very sick with the flu. We didn't really want to catch the flu before a 15 hour flight back to Canada! We had already bought our non refundable train ticket, so we had to figure out where we could go that would allow us to use at least part of our train ticket. We had a train switch in Doncaster, and googled searched around that station for places to go. As I zoomed out I saw a star on my maps. CARLA'S HOUSE! We didn't really remember where in England she had lived. (We had been before, but didn't pay attention to where we were actually going.) It is easy to just hop on a train and not really know where you are going. We made our way to Carla's house for a much needed visit. First though, we needed to take a selfie with her... 

How we Visited NINETEEN Different Countries in Two Years

For a long time we wanted to travel but just never got around to doing it. Both of us have always had pretty entry level jobs that don't pay that well. Nevertheless, we decided to find a way to do what we want. We made it work and now we've travel to more countries than we ever expected a couple years ago. Here's how we did it.

Travel Diary
Day 2-3

After a 50 minute train journey from York, we made it to Durham which is a well known university town. Durham University is one of the World's top 100 universities. The town was therefore full of students everywhere. There were massive queues for Subway at all the Subway locations in Durham. I guess those students are hungry and Subway is cheap student food.

...but I digress.

Vegan Guide to Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Image
Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands and the most populated city in the country as well. It is a very cosmopolitan city with interesting culture and things to see. Everyone can find something to appreciate in Amsterdam as it is a diverse city with different sights for a variety of tastes.



Why You Should Go: It is a beautiful city with lots of greenery, canals, and bikes. The public transport, trains and airport connect you to the rest of the Netherlands and Europe.
They have a hop on hop off bus for tourists but also hop on hop off boats so you can see the city from the Canal. Amsterdam also has lots of museums like the Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum, plus restaurants and neighbourhoods to explore. You might know that Amsterdam is well known for the Red Light District which attracts lots of tourists and also the Coffee Shops where people smoke Marijuana which is decriminalised in the Netherlands.
