A Spectacular Day - Abseiling and Cloud 9 Cooking School - Lizette

Wow. That’s the only way I can describe today. My breath was taken away quite a few times, by the wonderful abseiling experience and the majestic mountains, my taste buds were enlightened with amazing food.

This morning I was excited to experience zip lining and abseiling. There was a small hike but the pain and shortage of breath was definitely worth it. At first the view was beyond anything I could imagine, but I know I’ll never forget it. The nerves finally appeared a moment before I had to jump, it felt like I was jumping for my life but as soon as I took off adrenaline was rushing through my body. Then once I got to the rock I had another totally different experience of lowering myself about 35 metres to the ground.

That afternoon, I learnt so much in the cooking school, I never knew that eggs could be made into dumplings and how my taste buds could explode from flavour. The cooking school was called “Cloud 9 Cooking School”. They treated all the Alpine students and staff members with such respect I was astonished to be able to cook Chinese cuisine in a room with 12 of my peers.

All in all this day was spectacular and will be a highlight of my trip.
