Taken for 'Saturday Self Challenge': "Travel"

Night view of Amsterdam, flying in to Schiphol.

This was my first foreign trip since covid and turned out not to be the greatest trip travel wise. Friday, the first day I was in Amsterdam there was a national train strike, and metro line cancellations and line closure and what should have been a 30min journey ended up as 2.5hrs.
Returning to UK on Monday it took four hours of queueing from arrival at the airport to clearing the security check fortunately I got to the gate just as boarding started and made my flight.
Judging from the number of names called by the cabin crew before departure I reckon around 25 people missed the flight. The problem was apparently caused by a lack of security staff at the airport.
