Boven. Another Adventure of the Golden Rock Adventurers.


It was very early, but already hot on the island of Golden Rock. That Saturday morning, not long since the Golden Rock Adventurers came back from their quest for the Beautiful Secret of Little Mountain, there was not a cloud in the sky. Only the moon was looking down mysteriously.



The Adventurers decided this was the day . They were going to reach the top of Boven, where no man has gone before. In their previous adventures they already learned the secret language of the island, so they knew Boven meant Upstairs or Above. In any way, Boven was high up!


So off they went. After the first narrow passage…

… they followed the curly flowers…

… until they found the Tree Witch hidden under the roots of the giant 150 year old tree.



The Tree Witch told them to follow the burning leaves untill they reached the never-ending water. The burning leaves were easy to find.

And after a few hours they reached the never-ending water.

But something strange had definitely happened here. It looked as if a pirate ship had stranded here!


The drunk captain even left his shoes.


On the beach lay on old treasure chest.


No luck! It was empty.

The Adventurers just wanted to take a break to build some fortune castles…

…when they heard something in the woods.

A lovely little goat was being hunted by…

…a giant goat-eating plant!!


And before they knew what happened, the ground shook and broke.


They noticed dinosaur eggs…

… and bones of a dead Something!

They ran to the lake…


… where a friendly fairy showed them the way UP.



They finally started heading up the mountain and left the Something behind.

But to be on the safe side, they pushed a big boulder down.

They were fearless.


They passed a field of dry grass. At least that’s what they thought.


In fact, it was a field of hair!

And that hairy field was the perfect cover for… the African Lioness!




They’d better run!

Luckily they had a compass…


… that pointed them to the rocks.


Higher and higher.


They climbed and climbed.


That way!that way

They just took a little break when they saw… killer wasps!!

They had to hide in a cave until they were gone.


This is what happened to the last person -a sunburned tourist- that got stung 70 years ago:

Sometimes (but only for a short while) the challenges were a bit demotivating.


But only 10 minutes later they reached Where No Man Has Gone Before:

almost there



They were rewarded with stunning views.

After 7 hours of pure adventure, the Golden Rock Adventurers made it!

On top of the world!!
