June 18th. Swarovski & Bon Fire
We left early in the morning to go to a corporate visit at Swarovski. Before arriving we dropped off Chris Brown at the airport, he had to leave early, sad. We toured the house of Marie Swarovski, which showed the history of its crystal industry, their great success, and the different ways they use crystals; pretty awesome. We then went to a museum and a gift shop. The museum was extremely weird, making you greatly question the state of mind those who put it together were in. After an enjoyable morning we traveled to the city of Hall and had a delectable lunch. Tasty soup and trout with vegetables, finally a healthy American style meal :] I then wandered the city with Mary, it was a charming historic town. After an hour or so we gathered onto the bus and drove back to the castle. It was a long drive back, but we arrived in time for dinner. At 8pm we had a sizeable bonfire outside. We threw around the football, frisbee, played games, and had a blissful time. After s’mores and lots of pictures Mary, Amelia, and I played on a swing set and stared off into the amazing views about us. Afterwards I worked to finish a puzzle before we left, Tyler Mouer helped and we were shockingly able to finish, yes! I then showered, packed, and fell asleep late.
