Autumn storm

The first autumn storm of the year raged over the Netherlands last week and meant the first-year students at De Wielerbaan campsite had to secure their tents firmly.

For lack of a room, about forty first-years have no choice but to camp out at the campsite in Wageningen-Hoog. They are having a 'super-cosy' time of it, according to campsite owner Nico van der Grift. 'They cook together, they eat together. There is a very nice atmosphere.' The campsite is open all year round but Van der Grift expects the last students to move on by Christmas. Meanwhile their tents withstood the storm very well.
