I am back safe and sound from a wonderful holiday to Center Parks in Zandvoort Holland, a wonderful place, a wonderful Country and wonderful company. It was a lovely location and with so many activities available not necessary to go off site. We however wanted to re-live some of our youth and share with Wilbur some of the places we had taken his Mummy as a little girl. We had stayed at the same site when it was owned by Gran Dorado at least 20 years ago perhaps longer so a day trip to Efteling Theme Park was arranged. We were amazed how much we remembered, the essence of the park remaining the same around childhood story books. A truly wonderful experience one that I would love to do with our other Grandchildren.
We were fortunate to watch the Raveleijn Park show which was amazing and included Ravens that were trained to food, a truly incredible experience that Wilbur is still talking about he enjoyed it so much. A definite highlight of the holiday.
Some of the rides were a true blast from the past, the Carousels were a delight and brought back some lovely memories.
The toddler park was a feast for the eyes with the bright colours of the play equipment, Wilbur was enchanted by the strawberry.
Another old time favourite was the Carnival Festival ride which is a little like Its a Small World in Disney, a delight for young and old.
The Efteling Museum was also a must see another blast from the past.
The Fairytale Forest remained the firm favourite with a lovely stroll, reflecting on times gone by and the stunning characters bringing the story to life.
As always thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post, sending me birthday and holiday wishes. Also a warm welcome to new followers, I wish I could offer you a nice pot of tea and some cake. I will catch up with everyone over the next few days.
See you soon.
