'Cygnets' in Switzerland
What an amazing and enjoyable trip. Arranged with military precision and much care by our chief Swiss cygnet.
Day 1 Marauding the Swiss countryside by train taking in Gruyere cheese factory and Chocolate factory. A lovely scenic ride, distant mountains viewed from the lakeside.
Day 2 Visit to Caran D’Ache with an exhaustive and fascinating tour of the factory, followed by a tasty lunch, shopping in their factory shop and an hour long workshop introducing us to some of their range of pencils, pens and paints.
They couldn’t have been more helpful and it was good to meet some of their executives who devoted a lot of time answering our many questions about their products.
I am looking forward to experimenting with their new ‘Museum’ range. Some lovely rich purples and deep dark greens. More later.
