A great week.
The lack of snow meant we could do some walks in the north that I hadn't done before - Longiaru Valley, Maureberg Summit and Wengen Wanderweg and these really made the week. The Collett's staff were, as always, friendly, warm, helpful and really really nice young people, a delight to meet. The Wengen Wanderweg day will stay with me for a very long time - a super walk and Sam and Charlie were helpful and informative. Sam suggested an alternative way up through the trees which was delightful and their happy banter and gentle teasing made it feel as if we were going for a walk with friends of long standing, Charlie's attention to flower identification was impressive and Sam's interpersonal skills will stand him in very good stead for his future career. The refurbished room (13) was lovely, really quiet for a poor sleeper, fabulous dual aspect views and spectacular skyscapes from the ensuite velux window! However not keen on polyester bedlinen - I wasn't the only one who found it hot and in winter too. Thank you for providing gluten free food - Reiner provide some lovely ford for me and that was a great help.
