I have a problem. I'm a big basketball fan, and there was meant to be a tourney (under 20's) in Malaysia when I'm in Europe. I just found out today that it's been moved to Greece (Thessaloniki) when I'm going to be in Europe. Does anyone know any way I can fly from Amsterdam to Athens? (preferably cheaply). I tried Easyjet, but I can't fly from Amsterdam to Athens with them... nor with FlyBE! I'm assuming KLM will be expensive, but I'm about to check them. Any others I could try?

you can try Virgin express (virgin.co.uk), but they don't have a direct connection from Amsterdam to Athens. There's a connection from Brussels to Athens though (Amsterdam - Brussels is 250 & easy to do by hitchhiking or by train).

sorry, forgot the "km" (so 180 miles, 250 km).
By train it takes about 2 & a half hours to get from Amsterdam to brussels (direct connection, add 15 minutes to take the train to brussels national airport).

Hitchhiking is pretty safe here, Inkyfan... unless you're a girl & you hitchhike at night, chances are very slim you'd get into troubles... (check Lonely Planet)

Usefull sites:
www.nmbs.be (Belgium railroad company)
www.ns.nl (Dutch railroad company)
www.schiphol.nl (Amsterdam airport)
www.brusselsairport.be (Brussels national airport)

maybe a German airport may help you too... f.e. Dusseldorf.

ehh I AM a girl, and I wouldn't hitchhike anywhere by myself...day or night! :eek: Besides, I have a train pass for 21 days that I can use in 17 countries! :D I've been to Holland and Belgium before! :D I think Germany might be a little too far to travel by train if I then have to catch a plane to Athens and train to Thessaloniki...unless there is a flight from Germany to Thess direct (but I already tried Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich airports - I even looked at Maastricht-Aachen airport!) :sad:

lol Mel, I already looked on the Schiphol site... and yeah...234 is a bit expensive, but it might have to do! :eek: Can't believe I might be going to Greece! Why can't some airline have a special then for under 200 euro return? ;)

  • A Joni Mitchell lyric for the Dutch Obsessed Girlie:
Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam
Or maybe I'll go to Rome
And rent me a grand piano and put some flowers 'round my room
But let's not talk about fare-thee-welIs now
The night is a starry dome.
And they're playin' that scratchy rock and roll
Beneath the Matalla Moon

Come on, Carey, get out your cane
And I'll put on some silver
You're a mean old Daddy, but I like you
  • (And congragulations to Michaela Krajicek on another big Jr. title)!
