Okay. Where to start? The borders reopened on 15 June and I have my birthday on the 21st. Since 2010 I go abroad for my birthday. 2012 was the exception because I just started at at NMBS / SNCB.

My sister lives in Zug, which means ‘train’ in German. So obviously, as a train enthusiast I took the train to Zug. Mit dem Zug nach Zug.
