3rd Poynton and Surbiton Guides have had an extremely busy start to the week in Switzerland, and wonderful weather to do it in!

The groups woke up bright and early on Monday morning to head to Engstligenalp via cable car. Once up there, it was a leisurely walk to the Cheesemaker’s where they saw different types of Alpine cheese being made – of course, there were tasters. In the afternoon, Surbiton decided to head into the village and go for a swim and 3rd Poynton spent the afternoon swinging from zip wires at Adventure Park Rehärti!

Ice cream for breakfast? Definitely!

Today, another early start saw the groups head to Interlaken via boat trip on Lake Thun, before which I managed to convince everyone that 10am was a completely acceptable time to have ice cream at the docks. The day of souvenir shopping ended in the Chocolate Show at Schuh Chocolatiers, where the girls got to see how different types of chocolate were made, before trying them all out, naturally.

Important scientific testing taking place…milk chocolate was the overall favourite!

Money well spent

Let’s hope the second half of the week is just as good as the first one for Surbiton and 3rd Poynton!
