Half term trip to Flumserberg in the Swiss Alps to have a go at skiing, taking in Paris and Zurich along the way.
Sunday 16th February 2020
Eurostar to Paris in the morning, late lunch at a creperie, then an afternoon wander round Paris, and spent the evening enjoying the night time views of the Eiffel tower from our hotel room.
Paris to Zurich

Took the TGV from Paris to Zurich in the morning. Arrive in Zurich at 2:30, had some macarons from Sprungli for afternoon tea, then a wander round the city. Dinner at Hiltl in the evening.
Tuesday in Flumserberg
Tuesday 18th February 2020
After some faff buying a ticket in Zurich which meant we had a later start than I hoped, we got a train to Unterterzern, at the foot of the mountains, then the cable car up to Flumserberg Tannenboden. Checked into our hotel, and then spent the remainder of the afternoon on various cable cars and chair lifts, with some mountain walking and taking full advantage of the many mountain refreshment stops along the way. Fondue for dinner (of course!), then back to our hotel.
Wednesday in Flumserberg - Skiing Lesson
Wednesday 19th February 2020
The main focus of today was a skiing lesson, starting at midday. I came to the conclusion skiing really wasn't for me, but Erika seemed to be pretty good at it.
Thursday in Flumserberg
Thursday 20th February 2020
Last day in Flumserberg. Played in the snow a bit in the morning, built a snowman and a snowduck (?). Later on did some more mountain walking, this time to Prodalp. Later on in the afternoon got the train back to Zurich, where we had one last fondue for dinner.

Friday 21st February 2020
