My friend and I will be in Utrecht, Netherlands and already have an apartment lined up in Amsterdam. However, we have decided that we want/need an overnight in Antwerp for one night. I am leaning toward pit-stopping in Amsterdam--after leaving Utrecht-- to get rid of our big luggage, and then go to Antwerp with just an overnight/day pack.
Is this excessively time-wasting? My reasoning is that I'd rather not make a quick turn-around 24 hours with our luggage, and also be free to come back to Amsterdam later in the evening without having to navigate a check in with luggage (or worry about check out times in Antwerp and dealing with Left Luggage)....
However, I do see the back-tracking hassle this could be.
So, Merry Travelers: settle a debate for me (between travel partner and me --although he says, "whatever works for me...." Side Trip to Amsterdam to Ditch the bags? or travel with the bags and save the time?
