Across EuropeA swift and uneventful ride into Alessandria to spend the rest of the day messing about waiting for for loading and the train to leave. We did intend to have a look about the town but were defeated by the rain that started. A coffee in the railway cafe opposite was as much as we could manage.

Knowing the ropes was a big help and knowing what to expect made it all much more straight forward.  We were able to watch a movie on the iPad before another excellent dinner as we rattled through the Alps in Northern Italy and Switzerland in the dining car.

Our steward made up the beds and had to wake us shortly before we arrived in Den Boshe.

This motor/rail trip a definitely an experience that we would recommend heartily. Fabulous
