Yesterday, Dearne went to Interlaken by bus, train and boat to experience the chocolate show and do some souvenir shopping. Gibraltar, meanwhile, went to the Truemmelbachfaelle- some really impressive water falls near Lauterbrunnen.

Fantastic Mountain Views

16 Aug 16

What a few days it has been!

Both groups traveled to Kandersteg on Sunday to the Oeschinensee and tried out the toboggan run, paddled in the lake and enjoyed the wonderful sunshine- very sorry but I forgot my camera so no snaps from that day!

Yesterday Dearne travelled to the Truemmelbach falls, and then continued up to Muerren by cable car for a nice ice cream. The views from the village of the three mountains were amazing! Mürren_view

This morning Gibraltar Guides journeyed to the top of the Engstligenalp by cable car to see how traditional Swiss mountain cheese is made. There were a few obstacles to overcome however as we had to plough our way through a herd of cows to reach the entrance!
