It’s the end of the week and I can’t believe how quick changeover day has come here at De Kluis. A moving day was had at Ypres on Thursday for both groups.

Friday brought tree climbing and BMXing for 2nd Keighley and 2nd Riddlesden whilst Merlin ESU took the train into Brussels.

The first new experience for Merlin ESU was mastering the underground Metro to Bruparck. Surprisingly easier than expected, they reached their first destination – the iconic Atonium: an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times!

First we travelled up to the 7th floor for views across the city and then down to travel through the other domes. There were various exhibits to walk through. My favourite was a weird and wacky light show!

After the Atonium, it was time for lunch – frites!

Frites finished and an array of sauces tried it was on to Oceade Water Park for a fun afternoon, followed by a final meal out before heading back to site.

Safe travels to both 2nd Keighley, 2nd Riddlesden and Merlin ESU. You’ve been a pleasure!

Pyramid time!
