Lisse, The Netherlands - 3rd August 2008

By: Charda

Last weekend we went camping. Our host was a First Aid volunteer at an event called 'Castlefest'. Our host didn't have much time to take a lot of pictures, but she took some, so you can see where we've been. Since we were camping at the location, this is everything we had to bring. Luckily we went by car this time.

On the first day we met this cute thermos. It was strange. I think this penguin would prefer cold drinks, but he contained coffee!

These weapons are used in LARP, which stands for Live Action Role Play. These swords are covered in foam so that they don't hurt if you get hit by them.

This horse looks so cool!

This construction is a 'stool of witches'. Here you can be tested whether or not you are a witch.

Here you can see the main stage. This is where many bands performed during the weekend. Among the bands that performed there were 'Omnia' and 'The Transsylvanians'.

In the First Aid tent we met this nice couple. They look pretty cool, right?

He is really scary! You can't even see his face!

This tree had a man in it! Or was it a treant? I don't know exactly what it was, but he had this really dark grumbly voice.

The Wickerman statue was burnt on Saturday evening. Unfortunately we weren't there at that moment, because we had to stay in the First Aid tent.

These helmets and weapons were for sale.

I think this man was hung there as a warning for others. It looked pretty frightening to me!

The polar man and this dog looked pretty good together, but the man was only posing with the dog.

People dressed in the most splendid outfits.

Here I am in the First Aid tent. There was this one place where they had this big basket with Giant Microbes. We even saw some siblings of the TV Synapse. Here I am posing with the Giant Microbes that the First Aid people bought.

I don't feel that comfortable here between mange and louse.

I hope I don't catch a cold, or chickenpox.

These are the materials they worked with this weekend.

Suddenly we heard this loud roaring outside of the tent. What could it be? Oh no, it was a real dragon! But our host told us that this was a trained dragon and it was safe to pose with him. Well, I didn't feel too comfortable so close to him.

And now we're back home, safe in Leidschendam again, far away from knights, goblins and dragons. Phew, I think I'm gonna need some rest to recover from this weekend.
