Switzerland And Glaciation by Sophie-Louise on 27 June 2004 11:25pm
Hi everyone, since not many people go on the travel section, i thought i would post this on here too! :)

I haven't posted on here for a while cos well i haven't had much to say! lol

I am going on an AS Geography Fieldtrip on the 11th July to Saas Grund in Switzerland. I will be studying Glaciation and Mountain Vegetaition Succession at Spielboden and Lanfluh. I will also be doing the human side of Geography by studying settlemanet, planning and tourism studies in Zermatt and Sion.

I really can't wait to go and i'm so excited! Apart from one thing! A 24 HOUR COACH JOURNEY! NOOOOOOOOOOO! :'(

Anyone got any tips on how not to lose your mind on a coach for this long or any info about the area os Switzerland i'm going to to? I would love to hear any stories of your travels there! :)

Sophie-Lou xxx

happy travels forever! (as Michael wrote in my Sahara book for me!)

What a set of coincidences! My daughter's middle name is Louise, my niece's name is Sophie and my daughter is out in Switzerland this week in the Diablerets region to the South East of Montreux. She comes back on 2nd July from what sounds like a similar school trip. I'll try to remember to get her to do a post for you sometime after Friday... Later, She has been on the phone from Switzerland and from what she has said she has used about 60 photos already, 'it is so pretty' and they'll be going around Lake Geneva.
We'll move this post to the Travel section so check there for a continuation.

I've been to Switzerland many times, Sophie-Lou but not to the area you mention. But if have any other questions, let me know!
