This trip is confirmed.
You can still join us as long as there are spots available, even if you book Friday evening late or Saturday early morning.
Our meeting time is 07h45 Place Schuman (next to KBC Bank). That’s basically all you need to know (and take your mask)
Don’t hesitate, just join. We’re going with a large group with many different people. You’ll fit right in 🙂
Note: this trip includes a big lunch buffet with many options, non-alcoholic drinks, desserts and coffee/tea (really a super buffet!).
It also includes a boat tour & a guided tour in Urk!!!
Let’s go to “the Venice of the North”. And we’re not talking about Bruges or Amsterdam, not even Hamburg, but about Holland’s most beautiful village Giethoorn. There are hardly any streets here, just little canals with wooden bridges. To get from one place to the other, you take a boat and navigate yourself through a maze of waterways (in winter it is a very popular destination for skating). We will explore this exquisite village with its many stunning farmhouses from the water. Expat Club namely arranged a private boat for our group, so we can optimally enjoy the views while getting to know the other people on board. Our second destination is former island Urk, one of the country’s most famous fishing villages where finding some delicious fish is the easiest thing to do. Due to the long ride a delicious buffet lunch is already included in the price, so all you have to do is to bring your positive spirit, sit back, and enjoy the ride. Oh, and we have a few great surprises for you in mind to make this day unforgettable, and one of them will take you back beyond the time of the pyramids!
