The Belles Abroad group is one the newest Belles groups and was born during a trip to Potters in March 2017.
The group is open to all and we will be organising a series of (mainly) overseas trips to places which we’d like to visit but just haven’t got round to doing so far.
These are the details of what we have done and what we have planned. Please speak to Liz on the Committee for more info or to put your name down for this group. For info we usually book twin rooms, but triples or singles can be arranged although there may be a price difference.
September – Dublin
Join us for a weekend trip to Dublin from Friday 21st to Monday 24th travelling from Southend Airport.
November – Lille Christmas Market
We will travel to Lille by Eurostar from Ebbsfleet on Friday 23rd November until the Sunday.
We plan to visit some of these cities in the future. If there are any others you would like to add to the list please speak to Liz or Colleen at a meeting.
November 2017 – Amsterdam
In early November 8 of us went to visit the beautiful city of Amsterdam. Only a 45 minute flight from Southend airport, we stayed close to the city centre and made full use of the great transport facilities with easy local access to restaurants and bars. We took in a lot of museums, went to the flower market, on a canal boat trip and in the evenings compared notes about how many thousands of steps we had walked each day! At the end of the day we relaxed in the hotel garden with hot chocolate.
Here are a few of our holiday snaps. Amsterdam is definitely a city we would recommend you visit.
February 2018 – Prague
13 of us visited Prague and had a lovely few days finding out about the history and beauty of this very cold city!
