4am Beijing time. We have just arrived at the camp.

4pm Beijing time. 

After a long day of travel, the students reached the NAE camp at "Les plans sur Bex' late last night. 

They had time to eat a delicious dinner of pizzas and salad before attending a briefing by NAE staff about safety, behaviour expectations and the plan for the week. 

This morning, after a satisfying breakfast that included Swiss cheese, the groups have set out on their adventures. Watch our Residentials Blog for regular updates and news about all the activities that the students are engaged in!

We walked around the city of Bern and explored some main sights of the city - Käfigturm, the prison tower, The Parliament Building, Zytglogge, the clock tower and The Cathedral of Bern. They were fascinating and beautiful, providing historical and cultural background as well with their old history.

Today we had an early start to leave the camp and traveled back to the nearest bigger village by bus. From there on we caught a train to Montreux where we changed to get on a panoramic train which would take us throguh the Swiss alps with stunning views. Fitting with Swiss culture we stopped at a cheese factory and restaurant where we all had some lovely cheese fondue, Swiss hams and some dessert.

Currently we are traveling to Interlaken where we will settle down for two nights. Our plans for tonight are resting and walking about the small town, saving our energy for our "adrenaline junkie" canyoning activity tomorrow!

Luca Coban - Group 2 Leader

We started the morning by heading to Beire around 8.30am, arrived at 10.41am, went into a bakery and got some lunch prepared. The scenery was beautiful, especially when viewing lake Geneva from town.  We then started trekking at 11am, had lunch around 1.30pm and arrived at St. George at 2.30pm. We explored the town afterwards.
