French Alps Geography Fieldtrip Final Day

On Tuesday we woke up, got showered and dressed and went down for breakfast. There was a mix of baguette, cereal and croissant to choose from. We gathered our things and headed off to Chamonix for the Aiguille du Midi cable car. We ascended on two cable cars, which took 20 minutes arriving at the north peak (3802m). The change in temperature hit us instantly. At the base the temperature was around 22c and sunny, but at that altitude it was -3c and snowing! We then grabbed a bite to eat from the café and completed our final ascension up the lift to 3842m. Unfortunately due to the cloud there were few opportunities to get a glimpse of the fantastic views of the French alps and surrounding scenery. We then descended down to Chamonix where we had a look around for souvenir shops and of course McDonald’s. Next we went back to the hotel and had an early tea consisting of pizza and chips. To finish off our day we went for a game of bowling. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the scores ranged from as few as 19 upto as high as 126. We then headed home and had a good nights sleep ;)zzzzz

On our final day we had a ‘lie in’ (30 mins extra) and then packed our bags and cleaned the room. We then did some geography field work in our resort Notre Dame de Bellecombe including environmental quality surveys and a land use tally. Then we all gathered at the coach and headed off for a relaxing day in Megeve. While some people are enjoying swimming others enjoy updating there Facebook status’ 😉 and playing a game of footy or mini golf. Later today we’ll be travelling back to the hotel, gathering our bags and heading off to the airport. Hopefully we’ll have a swift departure and arrive back home in the early hours of the morning.

Also a big thanks to all the staff, Mr Lowe, Mr Gaston, Mr Bootherstone and Mr Sykes. Who have made the trip a great experience for us all and have had a lot of laughs with us all.

Joe Carter, Liam ‘Lee Dog’ Edwards and James Earl.
