De Efteling

This week the school of my kids had their yearly day off in the beginning of fall and traditionally we are going to the most beautiful theme park you can find in The Netherlands: De Efteling. No idea what an efteling is, so I can't translate here.

This year we wanted to do and see the things we didn't do in the last couple of years, so we started with the wooden roller coaster Joris en de Draak (Saint George and the Dragon). No loopings, but with a speed of 75 km/h, it goes fast. 
And what I personally like best in De Efteling is how things are designed. So much detail in everything.
 



Unfortunately it was a quite busy day. The whole reason we always wait until the first day off, is because the day off is only in our city, so all other kids in the country go to school, so it's quiet and waiting lines are short. But not this day. Our neighbouring countries appeared to have a holiday weekend and all came to visit De Efteling.
We were just in time for Joris en de Draak before people lined up and waiting time added up to more than an hour. 

After the roller coaster we went to see all other attraction that we didn't see last years. 


Fata Morgana (Mirage)






Panda Droom (Panda Dream)




Raveleijn (a show with ravens and horses)

 





That dragon; I just love it!!


Sprookjesbos (Fairy Woods)

We did a short walk through the Fairy Woods, because we only wanted to see the recently added fairy tale of Pinocchio. The other fairy tales we've seen in the last years.
