Hi everyone Holland Calling
On Saturday morning we set of from the school for the drive to Hull. We stopped a couple of times on the way, and arrived at the ferry in good time. Once we were settled into our cabins we had our buffet dinner which was fantastic!
In the evening there was a choice of Cinema, Football or cabaret. Our exceptionally talented staff won a mini cruise as first prize in the “Are you smarter than a 10 year old quiz”.
On Sunday morning we had to be up early for breakfast, and them on the road to Amsterdam.
We spend the a few hours here and went on a Canal boat tour, and then spent sometime looking at the shops. There was a big concert event taking place in Dam Square which we watched for a short time.
Then back to the bus and on to Valkenburg.
We arrived at our hotel about 6.00pm and once we had freshened up, we had our dinner. Hotel op de boud
The weather in Amsterdam was really warm but when we arrived in Valkenburg there was a thunder storm and really heavy rain – also hail stones the size of sugar cubes! This soon passed and we went for a walk into Valkenburg town to check out the cafes, shops and local sites.
All are well!
Tomorrow (Monday) we head to Germany and Phantasialand
