Efteling Amusement Park, Kaatsheuvel, Netherlands
That's right! Flat Kelly made her way from England to the Netherlands where she is graciously being hosted by the lovely Saskia! See below for Saskia's account of her first few days...
Flat Kelly made it safe and sound to the Netherlands, a little town called Loon op Zand on Friday the 22nd of February. Lucky her, Saskia had a trip to an amusement park planned on Sunday with her family! As they woke up on Sunday morning, everything was white. If you read the previous blogposts, you've already seen that Flat Kelly was not too impressed by this white blanket. However, after Saskia put a little hat on her and they arrived at the Efteling, all was well.

The Efteling is an amusement park situated in Kaatsheuvel and calls itself the 'World of Wonders'. It has various attractions, roller coasts and a very old yet very exciting Fairytale Forest. The latter was also the very first thing they visited. Flat Kelly demanded to take a picture in front of the famous candy house of Hansel and Grettel.
After that it was time for some more action. They went for Saskia's all time favorite attraction: Villa Volta. As quoted from their website: 'A beautiful villa surrounded by an English garden, this house is no ordinary house. Hugo, the gentleman of the house, will never be at peace. He will haunt it, twist it and turn it until the end of time.' First, the story is being told by Hugo, which couldn't really impress Kelly at all...
But when they walked into the actual attraction, Kelly was super excited! Sadly, the clip they tried to film failed miserably, but this guy did a better job if you're interested what it is like: http://www.youtube.com/
As this is kind of a world trip, they could not miss the Carnival Festival. It's a ride past 270 different dolls, which represent about 15 different countries. Unfortunately, very dark and very bad environment for taking pictures. Only one made it out safely.
Flat Kelly and Saskia had a really fun day together and are both looking forward to be spending the next two weeks together.
And the Real Kelly can't wait to see what happens next! A big thanks to Saskia for showing Flat Kelly a good time :)
