Holland 2012: Day 3

Hi from Valkenburg,

We’ve had a great day in Phantasialand.  The sun didn’t shine much, but at least the rain stayed off until most of us were already soaked.  The prize for the soggiest Y-fronts goes to Brodie, who waddled and squelched back to the bus having barely survived a marathon outing on the River Quest.  The park was really quiet and the queues were very short allowing us to make repeated use of all the attractions.

The award for the quickest revisited breakfast goes to Libby, who this morning made it to the bus only to have her stomach turn before the wheels.  This is not only her PB, but, we think, the quickest Preston Lodge time set since records began.

Highlights on tonight’s Animoto are Mrs Hoban with two dragons, our Health Promoting School snacks and lots of happy travellers having fun.  Look out also for the Karaoke, bowling and boy’s nail bar – thanks to the girls for the materials and expertise, but the boys will need to work on their pseudo-glam Facebook poses!

Pleasing to Mr Stewart was that three days spent with Keiron had been more effective than three months of ear syringing (LOL), unfortunately three seconds on the Mystery Tower with Mrs Donaldson have perforated an unprotected eardrum!

All the travellers have enjoyed reading your comments – please keep posting!!

PS Well done to the Battlefields trip for staying in character by only posting still photographs, although we did notice that they were in colour rather than sepia.
Now that we have provided them with the enigma blueprints for Animoto, we may see some newsreel from the 2nd Battalion.

Good night from the Preston Lodge/Valkenburg 9th Division.
