A group of thirty-five year eight, nine and ten students from Court Fields were fortunate enough to be able travel to Austria last week to go and enjoy the fabulous skiing and mountain scenery that it had to offer. We set off in our coach on Friday evening with a long journey ahead and the excitement and anticipation aboard was amazing. No one could wait to get going! By midnight on Friday we had made it to the ferry and began our ‘voyage’ across the channel towards France. From there we would go through Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland before finally making it to Austria. The amount of snow and mountains visible from the coach windows grew and grew as the journey went on and a steady supply of films and food kept all on-board entertained and happy.
By Saturday evening, we pulled into the drive of the Aktivhotel Ederleiten in the town of Bruck in the Ziller valley. The hotel and view were masked by the night and as we made our way inside we were greeted with a much needed hot meal before going to find our rooms. It was all very welcoming and friendly and we were delighted to get to bed and get some real rest!
