Friday, 8th June, 2018
All f-f-f-four of us used all s-s-s-sixteen of our limbs. ICE… ICE… ICE… SING… SING… SING… No, I don’t mean to repeat myself. Its just the way the echo-echo-echo reverberated our voices and songs in the icy tunnel. Our ssshh… shhh… shhhivering voices made lovely haunting melodies. They even hold we-we-weddings in the chapel inside! Well, wedding vows th-th-thrice said! That would be a s-s-s-strong bond indeed! Thank you Vibrant Holidays, f-f-f-or this inside the glacier experience. C-C-C-Coffee please!
