Hallo to our new groups on site! 2nd Keighley, 2nd Riddlesden and Merlin ESU are here and settling in well! On Sunday, their first full day on site, both groups headed into Leuven, with 2nd Keighley and 2nd Riddlesden taking the train and Merlin ESU choosing to hike into the city. 2nd Keighley and 2nd Riddlesden took a stop at the swimming pool before joining Merlin ESU at Leuvens Scout Museum!
Yesterday, Merlin took the train into Bruges. First stop the chocolate museum, Chocostory!

After the museum and lunch, the explorers split into 2 teams. The two teams of Merlin explorers went off on their own personal Bruges challenge. The challenge – to find various places of interest around Bruges, with an additional challenge in each location. The day concluded with the explorers heading to the supermarket to collect the ingredients for the second of their very own ‘come dine with me’ camp meal! The photo below is of the many bubbles that were being created in the main market square, just before we left Bruges!
