This past Saturday, My Switzerland invited a few lucky bloggers to head into Londontown and ‘experience Switzerland’.
But how does one experience Switzerland in England’s capital? Simple.
1. You go make (and eat) a TON of chocolates
2. You go drink mojitos in A BAR MADE OF ICE
With some gorgeous food thrown in to boot –
3. And then you go ice-skating
Obviously, I was ice-skating so I only managed to get this image of my feet –
Oh yeah that – and the AMAZING PHOTO that heads this post too.
Seriously, ice skating at sunset outside the Natural History Museum really was quite magical (and I spent most of the time whizzing around on my own just beaming to myself at how awesome it was).
A gorgeous and lovely day was had by all. Not only did I get to ‘experience’ Switzerland, but I also got to meet some ace fellow bloggers along the way.
And why did we do all of this lovely stuff?
Well, throughout the rest of November, Switzerland Tourism are planting five blocks of ice in and around London each representing a different Swiss ski region.
EDIT: The first one went live at Canary Wharf this morning.
Each block of ice has within it 75 ‘swag cards’ on which are printed unique codes that can be exchanged for prizes ranging from Swiss Army Knives all the way through to seven night holidays – many many prizes, there are indeed.
More information can be found on the ice drops over on the ‘Reach out + Touch It’ website, in the meantime – I’m off to look at booking a trip to Switzerland.
I really am. Apparently there’s a SNOW TRAIN these days.
