... obtained from the grocery store. And while I didn't have any wine, apparently it was awful, but the ice cream was delicious and the lack of a freezer required us to domain the tub, which I generously helped out quite a bit on :) Hearts was played competitively, with Ellie hanging in for four rounds with 98 points while we all tried to rack up Emily's points, as she was several decades behind us (spoiler alert: we were successful!) all in all a good ...

It was a really interesting experience, especially as i found i could actually remember studying this stuff and could see it brought to life in the glacier. After our hike we went back to the hostel for lunch and free chocolate fountain! We liked this hostel haha. In the evening we were in the tv room watching a ...
