The bus that brought us (6) to the efteling in Kaatsheuvel


Early… very early someone was asking what time it was…. almost 7. Much too early to get up. But we have an appointment with Devi at the train station so after 30 minutes waking up and a shower we went downstairs for a breakfast. Breakfast was simple but good. At
9:15 we went to the train station to meet more TB-ers. Only Lieke was there. After a while talking and putting people in cars, 6 of us went to the bus and got a ride to the efteling. We were: Ket, Eef, Lieke, Daniël, Joost and me. Guido and Brett took there cars.

At the front of the efteling we met a lot more people from TB. It was a little bit raining but not too much. We all got our tickets and walked inside. We immediately split in 2 groups. Why … I don’t know. I think it is difficult to keep the whole group together. I was with a group of 12 and we are going to the “vliegende Hollander”. The rest of the morning we visited a lot more rollercoaster’s. I can’t remember what the waiting times were. We had so much to talk in line, It simply wasn’t a problem.

The lunch we had all together in the white horse, but accidentally we were at the wrong place and too late.

I won’t tell who it was Anna-IsabelJ.

After to much food we started slow in the “droomvlucht” and the most famous of all “carnival festival” J . Everyone can still whistle the song. I skipped a few attractions and the most of us got in the Pagode to catch a view over the efteling. After the Pirana it was time for a group picture. Thanks for doing this Sonja J.

While going to the exit we visited “het sprookjesbos” to get a view of the famous Langnek. At the exit we had to say goodbye to Jorien and Guido. They drove right back home. We got in the cars now and back to Tilburg.

At the hostel I checked in again. This time we stayed in a smaller bedroom, just for Daniël and me. While standing there Devi was calling to ask me if there still was a room available. There was, so I booked it for Devi and Anna who also wanted to stay in
Tilburg. There was still some time so we stayed in front of the hostel and had a few drinks. Then Johan joined us, and around 8 we went for our diner to ‘t Pakhuys. While Devi and Anna were driving around we reordered the table so we could sit closer to each other. We had a few drinks whilst waiting for the two girls. Just when we were choosing the diner they appeared and we could start eating. Diner was great so also the service. After diner we had to say goodbye to Lieke.  The rest of us went to the same place as before because of the cheap beers

Then more and more people left and the die-hards went to a disco. Ket, Brett, Daniël, Devi, Anna, Anouk, Joost and me. Brett told me that it probably wouldn’t be so late as last night. How wrong could he be. Inside is was to hot for Daniël and Brett and they had there beers outside and had a great time there.
J After the disco we took place next to Brett and Daniël and we are having fun again.

Devi’s phone rang and guess what, Guido was coming back from Rotterdam. Aaaaarch, how crazy can you be! At 3:45 he was back and we were having fun till we saw that the sun was rising again. We ‘hurried’ to the hostel and we all were surprised that we made it so late…. After a few ssssstt and ssssstt (people were sleeping) we all went to bed.
