Book Club (#1): Call me by your Name

Held by Gay & LesBian Social The Netherlands on 10 July 2019 7:30 PM

For our first edition of the Book Club we will be reading and exchanging ideas about: Call by you Name by André Aciman.

This book is an extraordinary, poetic, and deeply beautiful reminder of the emotion coming with the existence of loving for the first time or out of love for the last time.

“Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between the young Elio and Oliver, a summer guest at his parents' cliff-side mansion on the Italian Riviera. Unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, at first each feigns indifference. But during the restless summer weeks that follow, unrelenting buried currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire, intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them.”

Bike tour "Romeinse Limesroute" (Part 2 - Utrecht/Arnhem - 88 km)

Held by Gay & LesBian Social The Hague on 13 July 2019 10:30 AM

Hello Bikers,
the winter is over, so it's the perfect time to take our bikes and spend a day out, enjoying the Dutch nature and a bit of culture.

This tour is a part of a longer route (220 km) from Katwijk, on the North Sea coast, to the German border at Millingen (passing through Leiden, Woerden, Utrecht, Arnhem and Nijmegen), that follows the Dutch section of the Limes - the border of the Roman Empire - which ran along the old River Rhine. In 2nd century AD - when the empire was at its greatest - the Limes ran from the North Sea at Katwijk along the rivers Rhine and Danube all the way to the Black Sea.
Along the border Romans built twenty forts and a series of watch-towers (castella), interconnected by roads. Unfortunately, not many evidences remain, but we will see modern reconstructions and information boards (in Dutch).

Tour starts at Utrecht Centraal Station and ends at Arnhem Centraal Station.
Since tour ends at a different location, please bring you...
