On Wednesday Liverpool 445 set off to Interlaken to enjoy some retail therapy and chocolate tasting. But first they stopped in Spiez so they could take in some of the view, and carry on their journey to Interlaken by boat.

There was time to take photos of the stunning scenery and this group photo is a great one!


The cloud had finally (sort of) cleared so we were able to sit outside on the boat journey and arrived in Interlaken with plenty time to hit the shops before the chocolate show.

We finally made it to the Grand Café Schuh for the Chocolate Show, where we learnt how the cocoa bean becomes the delicacy we all know and love.

There was plenty of opportunities to sample the finest Swiss Chocolate, which left the girls (and me!) far from hungry.


Yesterday there were visits to Our Chalet and the Woodcarver, and today the group has taken the Sillerenbuehl Cable Car to the top of a mountain.

Tonight is the traditional Swiss Evening, more pictures to follow!
