Wandering through Amsterdam Central Station this morning I bumped into a Bobby and a Beefeater. Both speaking Dutch and offering sweets, I know you’re not supposed to accept sweets from a stranger but I made an exception. The text on the sweets says “Drop me off in London”, and the sweets are liquorice allsorts. “Drop” is Dutch for liquorice. It’s a small joke to promote NS’s (the national train company) service to London.
Tickets are on offer for as low as 59 euros, there’s a train an hour and the trip takes about 4 1/2 hours.
If only I liked liquorice.
