The season has come to an end and everything is packed up at Buitenzorg. It is time for me to say goodbye to Baarn, Buitenzorg and the Netherlands.


It has been a fun filled season with lots of different groups and activities! From going to Ypres with the Potteries North District Scouts to going on all the rides at Walibi with the Stoke Climsland Scouts! All 5 groups have been great fun and have seen the best of what the Netherlands has to offer.



For me, it has been nice to meet to so many people from all over the UK and show them one of my favourite countries. I have been made an honorary scout twice (!!!) and have learned things about the Netherlands and the UK that I never expected to. Hopefully everyone that visited has had a real taste of what the Netherlands is all about; from clogs, to stroopwaffles, to dutch pancakes, to windmills.


I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their summers. Until next time, tot ziens!
