... soft and delicious (you could pick untouched puffs of it off the trees like fruit and eat it) and coated everything in the wildest ways. We decided to have a village day that day instead of catching the hideously expensive train up to the top of the tallest mountain. It was worth it. The village is so beautiful, and because it was about a week outside of snow season we had the whole place nearly to ourselves.

Perfect way to celebrate getting down the worst part of the hill, we only had about 200m more of vertical (vs the 800 we had already done!)

... to Wengen the snow had almost gone. We stopped in Wengen, the boys bought themselves a swiss army knife here which was very kindly engraved with their names for free. A very exciting purchase for them, Milly enjoyed looking at the shops with mum, and we wandered the town before catching out last train back to Lauterbrunnen.
Here we stopped for a hot drink in a very cool café, filed with Australian and American travellers. We were able ...
