With the wind at our back, it was a short flight, a little over 6 hours and since we had boarded before 8 p.m. you can work out the implications of that for yourself. But it was a beautiful day, none of our luggage was damaged or lost and BB&L was ready and waiting with an Opel Zafira with 3rd row seats (altho it took us a while to figure out they were there). The gentleman who did our paperwork set the GPS to speak in English (butchering place name pronunciations, but saving me from having to translate all the left, right, etc. for R). We drove to Efteling and then ran straight up against Dutch rigid mealtimes, because by the time we were there, breakfast was over but lunch hadn't started. So we set up our day bags and went into the park to go on rides. There is a new coaster: Baron 1898! Too big for A. to be interested. My initial goal is to get us on Carnaval, since we missed it last time (still not sure how that happened), and then after that I want to see how many rides like Flying Dutchman we can do that A. was reluctant to do before and thus I missed doing. I don't care as much about the big coasters.
We exited the park (with some calories on board, altho we were sad the Kip Lollly from two years ago has been replaced with some very weird tasting chicken nuggets. Also, the park ketchup is entirely too low in sugar and salt) and checked into our Bosrijk villa a little after 3 p.m.
