|The Big 62nd Trip 2017|
Friday 18th August until Saturday 26th August 2017
Sadly, we decided to cancel our trip to Slovakia and put it on hold until after things settle down due to Britain leaving the EU. In replacement, we are planning an exciting trip to Netherlands instead. Quite a bit closer and therefore costs a little more managable!

Bieslandse Bos Scout Campsite
We’ll be staying in the woods at Bieslandse Bos, near Pijnacker, just outside of Delft. It’ll be a full tent city, with onsite toilet and shower facilities.
The other information:
One of the campsites in Bieslandse Bos.
Our accommodation for our stay in the Netherlands will be the Bieslandse Bos Scout Campsite in Pijnacker, near Delft. We will cart all our tents and equipment over the puddle from Harwich to the Hook of Holland and rough it for the week under canvas.
Toilets and showers, we are told, are on site.
We plan to fly from Bristol Airport direct into Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam. From there we will catch a train close to our campsite.
Accompanying us will be a van for all our kit, and to help us buy food once there.
This is where the adventure begins! Not a minibus in sight as we travel by bike, hike and public transport.
When in Rome…
Passports will be required as will EHiC.
Includes everything but your pocket money.
