The Not-A-Mystery-Anymore Mystery Trip
You will be astonished to learn that we did not go to Oban! Instead we packed our five-day adventure with trains, buses, ferries and quite a bit of walking, not helped by the 20km hike! Though we did learn that hiking in the flat countryside of the Netherlands, 20km does not feel quite as bad as 20km in the Pentlands. Then again, frustration at cryptic instructions happens wherever you are in the world.
A particular highlight was experiencing a normal Dutch scout camp. It was fun to enjoy traditional sack racing, archery and shuffleboard alongside a very contemporary campfire.
A huge deal of thought and effort went into planning and running the camp. We are extremely grateful to our Dutch host who treated us with the greatest levels of hospitality.
The adventure was fantastic, both in its own right and in preparing us for the jamboree. It was topped off with an excursion through Amsterdam giving us a flavour of the city, mainly in the form of sugar-packed sprinkles!
So where are we going?
After the dazzling heights of the New York skyscrapers, the sophisticated elegance of Washington DC, and the sweaty camping of the World Scout Jamboree we can now revel we are also heading off to Fraser Valley, British Columbia! This is extremely exciting, it giving us the opportunity to experience even more international scouting and guiding.
