Day 6: Wednesday, 24th July

After a restful night’s sleep in Utrecht, Holland, we awoke a little later than normal before we started our final day of travel to Star Wars Celebration Europe onboard the Caravan of the Force, in association with Toys”R”Us. We all enjoyed a good breakfast and the hotel management ensured we had provisions for our journey in the form of mini muffins.

We loaded Boba Fett, a.k.a.

Along the route we found a great Italian restaurant where we all enjoyed rather large pizzas and big bowls of pasta.
