This morning we all woke up at 7:30 so we could eat breakfast at the hostel before going winter kayaking. We walked down to the train so we could ride to Lake Breienz. On arriving we put on fuzzy socks and yellow dry suits that made us look like astronauts. We carried our kayaks down to the lake and got in! We paddled all around the lake and even played “evolution “ in our boats. We then paddled to an old castle where we took pictures and drank tea and chocolate. The view was amazing! At the end of paddling we all bought fuzzy socks and ate lunch next to the lake.
We then caught a bus to go paragliding. We were all super nervous but we ended up having a great time. We were given our pilots after riding up a mountain to take off. Our guides set out the parachutes and strapped us into our harnesses.
We jogged towards the end of the mountain but we all started flying before we got to the edge. As we flew we were able to see everything below in such a new way. The houses looked like children’s toys and the mountains seemed smaller. Once we landed we moved on to our next activity.
Finally we went on a hike to see the “North Face.” The woods were snowy and beautiful and the evergreen trees were gorgeous.
All in all today was, in my opinion, the best day yet!
