Trip to Holland! [Part 1]

I recently travelled to the Netherlands with my cousin to see some motor racing at Circuit Park Zandvoort - and of course that meant more flying!

We booked fairly late on and many of the airlines had become extortionately expensive (cough - klm - cough) but after an extensive search, the cheapest route viable for us was EasyJet from Luton.

London Luton (LTN/EGGW) to Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS/EHAM) EZY2155
EasyJet Airbus A319 G-EZBO

The 7:20am flight meant an early start but everything went smoothly, including using airparks. We flew out on a Sunday when the number of flights was limited and as a result, the flight was packed. We hadn't pre booked seats (saved £6, why not) and I was assigned an aisle seat but still ended up by the window, most people don't care anyway!

Take off was on time and spectacular with the early morning clear skies:

After a fairly uneventful flight, we arrived slightly early in Schiphol:

The taxi was very long, as expected, but leaving the airport was straightforward. The trains weren't all running so a bus service had been put in place to cover it, and everything went as planned - by 11am we were at Zandvoort!

Part 2 coming soon.
