You are all so informative and your posts have been very helpful in planning my trip so far, so thanks in advance for taking my question.
We are a bit nervous about traveling on trains with luggage, but are planning on packing light and bringing duffel bags as opposed to hard luggage cases.
We had been planning on doing a day trip from Gent to Antwerp and then going back to Gent that night. But either the next day (or two later) We will be taking the train from Gent to Amsterdam (changing trains in Antwerp). It feels redundant to do just a day trip to antwerp, halfway(ish) to Amsterdam, to then just head back that way with luggage a day or two later. However, if we chose to do one night in Antwerp, we would be bringing luggage and checking into an airbnb for only one night in Antwerp, which felt like a hassle.
Any thoughts? Admittedly neither of us are very familiar with taking trains so I think we are both a bit nervous about transferring in Antwerp, and though i have read up on how efficient the trains are, I'll admit we are a bit nervous about it.
Thanks for any advice
