School visits and a journey up the Belchen

An early start to the day. We caught a public bus to the school at 8.20am and after a short journey arrived at Buchenbrandschule to be greeted by 120 children. They sang us a welcome song, Hello by the Beatles, then we sang our song, Hey My Name is Joe! The children really enjoyed the button actions! After the assembly the children went to class. Our children did French and team building activities – they said it was great fun and they have made lots of friends.
We had a lovely lunch at the college then caught another bus and journeyed up the mountains to the Belchen, the highest mountain in the area at 1415m. We caught a cable car to the top and did some more sledging before walking to the peak. It was a tough walk, but the views were stunning and after walking, slipping and sliding back down the path we are all sat in the warmth with a hot chocolate. Not a bad way to spend a day!
