Hello from a night train between Arnhem & Amsterdam. I’m on my way back home after a somewhat snowy vacation with my family near Ehrwald, then Innsbruck & a quick stop in Munich for a night before boarding this train. If you’re ever traveling between Amsterdam & Munich, I highly suggest going by rail. Thank you for subscribing this year! The growth of this newsletter and all the feedback has been amazing!

I always think of how I never saw the utility in bike ponchos until I lived in Amsterdam. They all kinda suck still though. I’m sharing this because the only thing worse than a crappy rain solution is arriving all wet. A frequent hazard in many cities. VANMOOF’s BONCHO covers riders’ bodies from head to toe when riding in the rain and neatly folds up for easy and compact storage. Looks awesome!
