*complimentary press trip*
Why hello there you wonderful bunch, I hope you’ve had a truly gorgeous weekend and you’ve managed to keep warm and dry, man alive this weather is awful, roll on spring hey!?
I’m back today with a little photo diary, shot on film, from our time in Switzerland earlier this month. We were ever so kindly invited out to the Swiss Alps, Andermatt to be precise for a couple of days of skiing and relaxing… Heavenly!
BUT alas, as you know, we weren’t very lucky with the weather and didn’t really get to ski all that much unfortunately. There was a huge snow storm which meant that for the duration of our trip there was only one ski lift open and only for a couple of hours at that. We managed two runs until the storm affected the electricity and the ski lift had no other choice but to close… Devastation!
However, we had a truly gorgeous time in Andermatt and I am forever grateful to be able to experience new places through my work.
And despite the lack of skiing, we did get a really lovely feel for Andermatt as a whole and as you can see from these film snaps, it really is such a beautiful place to visit.
Andermatt is a quaint village located in the Ursern Valley in the Swiss Alps and has recently been named among the worlds best holiday destinations for 2020 by The Times, how fancy! Andermatt offers 180km of pistes with 33 ski lifts (lol that we only got to experience one…) it is the largest ski region in central Switzerland with peak time spanning from December to April.
Despite Andermatt receiving a huge transformation in the last 18 months through transport and ski facilities it still retains it’s small-town charm which George and I really fell in love with.
