Update 2018 UYAI Post-Conference

Dear Urantia Book Reader Friends,

As you may know, for those of you staying longer in The Netherlands after the International Conference there will be a post-conference organized by Urantia Young Adults International (UYAI) members and friends. There are only a few days left before the 10th Urantia Association International Conference starts and everyone on the conference planning committee is working hard to make it a great conference; they are looking forward to welcoming you very soon to The Netherlands.

To make the total experience more complete after the International Conference we (UYAI) are organizing a post-conference for additional socializing and sightseeing among Urantia Book students. If you are interested in staying longer after the event, then check this out!

AMSTERDAM SIGHTSEEING TOUR

Hop On Hop Off sightseeing tour through Amsterdam city center for Urantia Book students and friends. After the Sunday April 15 lunch, we will leave as a group from our starting point at the NH Conference Centre Leeuwenhorst to visit The Rijksmuseum. This Dutch national museum is dedicated to the arts and history of the city and is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South.

During the late afternoon, we will go for a canal cruise and have a late dinner at Vondelpark3 and close our day there with a visit to café The Waterhole at The Leidseplein which is the most popular entertainment and nightlife district of The Netherlands, located in the bustling center of Amsterdam.

During this tour, you can get off at any stop and reunite with us later at one of the five following meeting-points:
