Lazy day. Decided to move my travel plans around so that I can meet my Mom in Istanbul at the beginning of next month. This means more time in Eastern Europe, at the expence of getting to Africa yet another month later. Went to the train station to get a ticket on the night train to Amsterdam. Opted to treat myself to a sleeper car (I hate night trains, so I was feeling pretty indulgent)
The sleeper car is deinitely the way to go! The steward comes by and asks you what time you'd like to be woken up, takes your tickets so the conductor doesn't have to wake you up, and generally spoils you. The cabin(?) is small, but not much more so than the cabins on a ferry, and you have two large windows. Very nice.
