‘We got an envelope with coordinates; It turned out to be a dilapidated Friesian holiday park ‘| family

holiday with kidsIt’s finally time: summer vacation. Going out with the kids and enjoying each other and being free. But then everything is against you and you come home exhausted instead of rested. This week: Iris Kurberschuk replaced a dilapidated holiday park with a more expensive one, as her son was later injured.

For years, we’ve always done the same thing with the holidays, but last year we thought: It’s time for something new. Through a mother from school, she took part in a kind of sudden vacation, where you do not know in advance where she will end. It costs a little, but it’s an adventure! We conveyed our preferences and requirements to the broker, received an envelope with the coordinates on the day of departure and ended up in a recently renovated holiday park in Friesland. With a lake to swim in, because my three sons, ages 9, 5 and 2, I myself was pregnant with my son number four at the time.”

After one look at the lake, I already knew enough. It looked filthy, and was nothing more than a puddle of stagnant water. The owner wasn’t sure if it was safe to swim. He said he might take an exam tomorrow. Focus on maybe. So I had to inform my children that there will be no swimming at the moment. I immediately lost 10-0. They were angry with blood.”

“The accommodation itself was also very special. According to the site, it was extensively renovated, but we found it quite dilapidated. In the toilet, the wallpaper was hanging half way down, the house was full of flies and mosquitoes. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get rid of those monsters. It would be kid-friendly, but it had a scary steep staircase with alternating steps. As a pregnant woman I hardly dare to take it off. The camping bed reserved for our youngest turned out to be a pretty crazy size. He couldn’t even extend his legs. I sat with him for two nights because he never slept, while he beat the flies off my forehead.”


On that first day, my eldest fell into the water park and had to go to the hospital right away with a bad wound

,, We surrendered early and complained to the broker and we did not get any compensation. I’m totally done with it: 2 years after Corona, we can finally go on vacation again, paid a lot of euros and then this. Once back home, I arranged a long weekend in an expensive park in Holland, in a comfortable home. Hundreds of mosquitoes beaten to death on the wall, including bloodstains, made me sick. let me go; At least there was a great water park on the lake for swimming. The kids loved it.”

BUT: On that first day, an older than me fell into that water park, got his arm stuck in a ring, and had to go straight to the hospital with a serious wound. It wasn’t broken, but a year later he still had problems with movement and pain. As a mother of boys, I’m used to something, there’s always something going on. You don’t drive me crazy easily. But last year’s summer vacation was truly disastrous. And very expensive in every way. For the garden this year, I did additional research into the swimming pool, just to make sure I also wanted a good swimming pool. Put on your swimming trunks and go with these guys.”
