Every other week on Saturday we make day trips to Dutch towns and villages. We meet in the morning at our destination, usually at the train station. 

Anyone can join. Non-members pay €5,00 towards organization of the trip.

Your expenses: excursions, guided walks, transport (train, bus and other means of transport), drinks and food in cafes and restaurants, tips, souvenirs and so on.

What do we do during the trips:

Usually first we walk around the area ourselves or with a guide, then we have lunch, and after that free time or some kind of activity taking into account the local culture. Sometimes we have time left for shopping. When traveling to remote cities, where the travel time is more than 2.5 hours, those who wish can independently book a hotel.  We can discuss with those who wish in the Connect Travel Club WhatsApp group.

We plan the next destination 3-7 days before the trip according to the weather forecast and publish it in the description here.
