The clear blue skies, warmtemps, and fresh powder made for unbelievable conditions on the mountains for all of the skiers, snowboarders, and explorers in the Jungfrau Region. Goggle tans mean more street credit, and all the Interlaken guests from this past weekend have been getting mad’respect around town. Rumor has it that the dance party at Lucerna on Saturday night left lots of people happily stumbling onto the bus on Sunday morning, ready for a nice nap through the hills on their way home after an amazing weekend in Praha. Masks & costumes galore took over the parties in Venice & Stiges, and everyone in Ireland had yet another incredible time at the Cliffs of Moher & Guinness Storehouse among other places.
Over in Spain, Barcelona has been tearin’ it UP! Monday, the Bus2alps BCN crew hosted the Out Cold event at Dow Jones, giving away free canyon jumping, 50% off Interlaken Winter, skydiving, free ski/snowboarding, free night sledding, and rewarding any of those that signed up on the spot with a free Bus2alps T-shirt. Wednesday, people were raging in the dance pits as DJ Laidback Luke performed at Sutton. Lots of students were off traveling for the weekend with us, but got home in just enough time to celebrate Carnival in Sitges Sunday night! Things got crazy as the best costumes were rewarded with a free trip to Las Fallas in Valencia, one month from now.
Over in Florence, a massive chocolate festival took over the town, just in time for Valentine’s Day. And in Rome, Valentine’s Day was spent with a gathering of students at the Friends with Benefits Aperitivo event at Cafe Friends in Trastevere. Drinks, food, and new friends were made before going out for the night in search of some Valentine magic! A beer pong tournament was held Friday night at On the Rox along with a Cool Runnings event at La Botticelli for some free Interlaken activity giveaways! Free trips, chocolate, and love. It was a lovely week, and we’re all super excited for the next one coming up!
