6th September – The Ukraine 

It is found. It was at the Smalls. 

I’m super happy. 

And now people can stop looking at me funny when I say I’ve lost the Ukraine. 

It is found!!

20th February – Snow day

Our Chalet was my first world centre and will always be my favourite. From the squirrel which was once it’s logo (now only found on the buff or running round outside.) To the staff and vollies and Skippy, a cat with one hell of a personality!

  
I still love the snow, a day spent airboarding and drinking hot chocolate will never be wasted. I just hope I can hold on to the joy once I’m home. 

   
 Scouting and Guiding shrinks the world in a wonderful way. Meeting people in Switzerland that you last saw in Japan at #WSJ2015 or at the GirlGuiding Cenetenary or even here at the Chalet 3 years ago, or back in 2010 for the great guide getaway. 

But mostly I find it strange the levels of willingness to just sit and watch the world exist and be beautiful. This is not a thing I can do at home. I can’t find that peace, that calmness. 

   
 

And a last evening, mostly spent marking after dinner with new friends. I just wish old friends could have been there too. 

  Even hard maths is better when you are at Our Chalet. I’m going to miss this place, it feels like coming home.
