Today the group woke up in the hostel in Interlaken. We headed down to breakfast hungry and ready for the busy day ahead of us. After breakfast, we all split up and headed into town to do some last minute shopping and touring. After a chill morning we said our last goodbyes at the hostel and headed for the train station. We were on our way to Zermatt to enjoy a night in an igloo. The train ride had beautiful views and felt long because we were so excited for the fun night. Once we reached Zermatt, we all split up and walked around the town just to get the feel for things. The town was a typical ski town with cute shops and restaurants. Suddenly it was time to go up the mountain to meet the igloo group. Once we reached the top of the mountain there was a large snow storm, therefore we had to take a snowplow to the igloo. We enjoyed the views as the cold air hit our faces. We reached the igloo in delight and had a tour of the entire village. The igloo was amazing and made us even more excited for the night. Dinner was fondu in the igloo. We all sat around a table and had very broad conversations. After dinner we went out into the foggy night and snowshoed. Even though we hardly see anything through the fog, being surrounded by snow was pretty enough. After the tiring snowshoe walk, we hundled around the fire before heading to bed. After being warmed up by the fire, we headed to bed in the extravagant igloo hotel. Even though we had a little trouble falling asleep we were all went to bed happy and excited for the next day.
