So our travel plans went smoothly. After a delay leaving Gatwick we took off and landed at Zurich about 30 minutes late. After a quick rest at the station our train arrived and headed through Switzerland to Speiz where we changed to a smmaller train that headed down the Kander valley to Kandersteg.

Dave and Steve had arrived at the campsite about an hour before us and had booked us in. They also had a few delays as they headed across Europe.

Our campsite (number 27) is compact and dry and we busily erected our tents and setup our site for the week ahead. Everyone was quite tired after our long day so after a tea of Spaghetti Bolognaise and a quick tour of the site we headed to our beds for a well deserved sleep.
