Day 4, our last day before the journey home begins!
The challenge of the day – Bobbejaanland theme park in Belgium. Pride was at stake and some of the travellers still had something to prove after the near defeat at Phantasialand. The theme park did not disappoint and rides like the Typhoon and Sledgehammer still managed to keep the wary at bay.
The evening ended with indoor skittles and karaoke (with some stand out solo performances. Mr.Stewart unfortunately received the first walk out solo performance!). The girls also took on the unrivalled task of beautifying the boys with make up and nail art – How can you improve on perfection? Quite easily, apparently.
As we will be all at sea tomorrow night, this will be our last post from Holland. Our excellent hoteliers Louise, Rosie and Jan Wouters who have hosted approximately 450 Preston Lodge pupils to date on the Holland trip, our 10th Anniversary, have yet again done us proud with excellent food, accommodation and evening entertainment. There is nothing else for us to say other than that the pupils have been excellent company and really good fun throughout the trip. They have been a credit to their parents and the school and we thank you for the privilege of allowing us to spend the week with them. You are, however, welcome to take them back for the holidays.
