Scenery 

The route from Amsterdam to London has some highlights: the Moerdijkbrug in The Netherlands, just after the stop in Rotterdam, a huge steel bridge crossing the Hollandsch Diep, a very wide river. Another highlight is ofcourse the Channel Tunnel, that still is a major human achievement, but that's more a feeling, outside it's pretty dark, not much to see.. In the UK and Belgium the train is passing mainly urban area and huge farms.
