Amsterdam-Newcastle Mini Cruise
Only a few hours to visit Newcastle is way too short.
We had the choice between two buses to return to the boat, one at 2.45 pm and one at 3.45 pm. As we did not want to be late, we chose the first bus. (It was not clear whether it was local time or Amsterdam time!!)
Just at the end of the harbor, we had a view on The Little Haven Hotel

It was a nice trip, just a pity of the bad weather.
And there were Jonathan’s!!
For those who remember the movie: Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, well, Jonathan was here! There were even multiple Jonathan’s!
