I cought the train and travelled to The Hague Central station. I had only three minutes left for the next train to The Hague Holland Spoor train station. I bought a train ticket and jumped into the train as I heard the wissel for departure. I made it on time and I was about 13.45 at the train station nearby the Globe where I would meet the other TB buddy's and where we would climb an ice wall. As it was my first time climbing rocks frozen or non frozen ever I had more the idea of icegliding instead of iceclimbing :D. After walking around the Globe I soon met Maike and Marthijn, the organisers of this meetup. But also Mark, Edwin, Bas, Femke, Jenny, Lieke, Thomas, Harish, Rina and one Couche Surfer girl, Sorry I forgot your name...
First we had to fill our names on a list, the instructions were translated by Maike. The gear we were getting of the climbingcentre which consists of a icewall a normal climbing wall and several shops.
After being well dressed again we had a short tourist walk around The Hague. We walked to the most expensive and a lot of people think the ugliest building in The Hague and the smallest area of a sort of red light district. After admiring a church we walked further into the shopping district to the "Grote Markt" . This was the location of the restaurant "De Boterwaag". We had a very nice dinner, first drinks and nice fresh bread with nice kind of stuff, if you would like a soup which was a curry soup or another starter, a main course with beef, chicken or fish and of course a lot of nice desserts like chocolate cake, belgium waffles with icecream, meringue, home made apple pie and so on.
