Abhostel in Antwerp

I arrived in Antwerp late today and since there really wasn't anything to do by the time I got in to town, I just headed to my hostel and checked in.  Thankfully there was internet in the room and I was able to catch up on my blogging.  I am really like where I am staying here in Antwerp.  It is a family owned hostel called Abhostel and apparently it used to be a praline…

I have to admit that when I first booked the Los Amigos Backpackers Hostel online, I had absolutely no idea what I would be getting myself into.  All I knew was that it had 100% ratings and that was basically it.  On the map it seemed like it was super close to the airport and that transportation was convenient as well.  However, when I actually bought my ticket I found out there is actually two…

Dinner by Candlelight

I have been eating more than ever since I've arrived here at Los Amigos Backpackers Hostel and last night I had dinner by candlelight with the everyone.  Lets just call them family.  That's certainly what it felt like, we all sat around the big round table outside, had a nice meal, and lots of laughs.  Even Diana's Dalmatian, Pana, joined us though she had her own food to enjoy.  It really will be my turn…

A Long Travel Day

It was yet another long day of traveling.  I am starting to get used to getting rest on the run.  On the train or at the station.  If I am tired and there is an opportunity to catch some shut eye, I'll take it.  The ride from Lyon to Marseille was a long and quiet ride.  Not many travellers that early in the morning so I slept.  However, when I arrived in Marseille, it was…
