Survival Report 2: France and Switzerland

Poppy's Survival Reports - Week 2 Switzerland/France
top three Best Things for Kids in Switzerland and France:
  • chocolate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):):):):)
  • cable cars that swing about
  • not forggeting creepy glaciers
Weather we have been in:
  • low clouds
  • sunny and cloudy
  • and luckily sunny

Three most scary things that have happened. Funnily enough they have all happened on the same day.
The first two happened on Aguille de Midi, a very high mountain: fear of falling to my death, and fear of hypothermia!

The third scary thing was walking into a glacier/ice cave with a length of more than 30 metres.

Survival chance on Aguille de Midi: 0%. I would not survive as there is nothing to eat, it's freezing cold, and at any moment you could fall down a crevasse or over a rocky edge.

Holiday grade:

9/10 a wonderful and frightening time.
some amazing photos to share with you:

I gave Rosie curls!
Joe has an emergency rain poncho!
on a double decker train with a play area!!!!!!
wowwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tomorrow we go to Italy and all ready I feel like I have done everything!!!!!!!!!

Poppy's survival reports week 1 - Switzerland

This week, I have been on many cable car journeys, a very long car journey to Interlaken and have seen many different sizes of cowbells.

Checklist of what to bring if you are going to Switzerland

  1. Sunglasses - it can get very bright
  2. Raincoat or furry jumper - it hasn't rained on us but it has got very cold
  3. A little box of sweets to keep you going up through the mountains.
  4. A water bottle
  5. Lots of clean clothes for sliding down on dirty slopes
  6. Plasters for grazes

  • The thing I like about Switzerland is there are great cable cars to go on
  • Good chocolate, great chocolate amazing chocolate, and my favourite is the lemon and lime dark chocolate
  • Little cozy houses
Don't likes

  • I dislike the flat walks you can do, the steep uphill mountains and the sharp rocks that you can scrape yourself on
Poppy's survival grade: You can do it, but it would be hard to live out in the wild but there are lots of berries to eat.  75% chance of survival.

Poppy's holiday grade:  This is a great place to stay as there are many walks to be done, many trees to be climbed and many chairlifts to be sat on.  I don't know how great the other places will be but out of 10 I would give Switzerland a 8 and a half.
