The Beauty of the Railway Cathedral
One of the many things I love about Europe is the rail system. Traveling through Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium, I was able to get anywhere I wanted to go by train or other public transportation with very few delays. I enjoy the ride itself and looking out the window at the countryside and cities along the way. I also appreciate the interesting architecture and design of the old stations, particularly that of the central station in Antwerp, Belgium, nicknamed the Railway Cathedral. I felt that I had stepped into the middle of a European film noir.
As I got off the train and looked up to the top level of the station, I was really taken in by its beauty.
Antwerp is also a very busy station and people were rushing to catch their connections.
I took a few minutes before catching my train to Rotterdam to buy a warm Belgian waffle with chocolate melted on top. I didn’t want to leave Belgium without having that delicious experience.
