Ice Skating at Dolder
At the beginning of December Alessio and I wenting ice skating with some friends Katrina, Linda, Hannah and Markus. We went to the open air ice rink at Dolder, to get there we had to take a funicular up and walk a short way.
The ice rink opened back in 1930 and is still one of the largest rinks in Europe, we were lucky with the weather. Even though it was cold and snowy, there was a lovely blue sky and sometimes the sun peeped out from behind the clouds.
Do not be fooled of the photo of me posing with the ice skates, let it be known that I was really scared and if wasn`t for Hannah and Linda I may never have left the side. They took me round once and that was enough I would have liked to done more but was really nervous maybe the next time!
On the other hand Alessio really enjoyed himself and thankfully he had Markus to take him round and round the rink. Everyone really had good fun and afterwards we had a glühwein to warm ourselves up (always a good thing).
On the way back down a few snowballs were threw here and there, since then Alessio has not stopped throwing snowballs at anyone. It is a really lovely ice rink, a nice atmosphere and a restaurant where you can eat indoors and out too.
