Valkenburg 2017 – Day 4 – The Quiet Day

For many years the Monday of the Valkenburg trip has been the day of rest.

All of the activities are within 10 miles of Valkenburg and we all took advantage of lie-in until 07:30.

Our adventurers set of for Snowworld Landgraaf for a few hours of high ropes fun. We are are pleased to tell our readers that each one of the 42 young people took part in this activity. For some this was an exciting and interesting way to start a day but for others this was huge life event. On Saturday several of our young people chose not to take the pretty tame chairlift to the Rodelbaan in Valkenburg but instead to walk up the hill. Today we are pleased to announce these same young people accepted and conquered “Europe’s Largest High Ropes” course, some of them defeating both the easier (Blue Course) and the harder and higher Black Course. #ProudToBe PL #FightTheFear

Lunch was a healthy packed lunch in the sun and then we were off to Mosaqua in Gulpen for a swim.

Indoor and outdoor pools both open in the warm but not too sunny afternoon. Once again everyone of our adventurers took part in this activity which has not always happened on previous PL outings to Valkenburg. Now photographs in the swimming pools are never easy for a selection of reasons but please trust us they all had a great time in an amazing pool.


The evening was spent in LaserTag in the lime caves above Valkenburg and then back to the Hotel where despite the staff telling them that the day was still young, our young people all pleaded to go to bed. What chance do we have as a nation when our young folk are so keen to hit the hay when the night is still young.

Tomorrow is an early start for the run to Belgium and theme park number two Bobbejaanland
