#LondonToAmsterdam by #Eurostar ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿš„๐Ÿค”โฑ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ #TravelTuesday
Sounds alright, not the fastest, but from St Pancras direct to #AmsterdamCentraal in 3h 40min isnโ€™t too bad. No nice views over London when compared to a 45min flight from City Airport but no fuss with transfers, just pull a laptop out, get some work done, and youโ€™re there. Iโ€™d definitely like to give it go๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Good morning #Manchester ๐ŸŒ‡
Woke up early to start the day enjoying the skyline of the city from the 17th floor at #111Piccadilly , an office tower managed by @bruntwood who were so kind to organise the access๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป...because nothing beats a good sunrise view over a city to start your dayโ˜บ๏ธ

Highest public access viewing platform in London ? Simple - @shardview ๐Ÿ“ but Iโ€™m heading to Manchester and there doesnโ€™t seem to be one clear answer ๐Ÿค” @cloud23bar seems to be the highest public access ( drink/snack purchases required) viewpoint, on the 23rd floor of a 47 floors tower, so like barely half way, that canโ€™t be it, can it๐Ÿ˜ฑDo you know any good spots with skyline views over Manchester ? Let me know in the comments๐Ÿ“ฒ
