Funky Chocolate Club, InterlakenNot kidding! In the activity brochures, earlier in the morning, I found out all about the Funky Chocolate Club in Interlaken.I knew this was going to be better than just eating Swiss Chocolate!That’s for people who don’t come to Switzerland. But for those who do, what could be better than actually making some!All excited, I headed to the Funky Chocolate Club at a walking distance from our hostel. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It was a chilly evening, with the temperatures dipping by the hour! And of course, we were in Switzerland amidst the snow-covered mountains. The fun had just begun.After reaching well in time, I entered the Funky Chocolate Club. It was like a mini version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory as described in Roald Dahl’s book. There were chocolates all over. In different shapes, packaging, flavors and labels. Each looked prettier than the other. There was this sweet, chocolatey aroma in the room. And there were some quirky posters all over the store! Did I need anything more to build up the anticipation? We had arrived to get #chocolatewasted.
Swiss Chocolate Making We started off our Swiss Blind List adventure with a chocolate making workshop in Interlaken. We booked ourselves a slot for making Swiss chocolates at the Funky Chocolate Club. This was the very first time we were trying our hands at chocolate making or participating in any culinary workshop on our travels for that matter. We weren't quite sure what to expect! But the workshop was quite a lot of fun learning the tricks of tempering, mixing and molding chocolate. Of course, it involved tasking all kinds of Swiss Chocolates like pros and eating all that we could while at it!
Look Ma! I am a certified Swiss Chocolatier!Skiing for BeginnersNext up was an adventure very common to the Swiss, but a first for me and many other Indians like me. On recommendation by our friends from the Interlaken Tourism, we decided to try skiing for beginners.Here in India, let alone snow, we don't have too many seasonal activities that we participate in.
