We had breakfast and then we made our way to Allgdu for 3 days. We had to travel in the buses for 3 hours and we sang songs and had a good time. We arrived and had a ride up to the mountain shelter with a ski lift. We went to our rooms and then we went into our teams to practice our performance for tonight. After a good supper we enjoyed the performance of all groups. The leaders present blind date first. It was really funny because they took names from different members. The next thing was that members present their own shows. It was really funny and crazy and the winner group had to show their performance a second time. It was a nice day.

The morning of Thursday at 8 o'clock we had breakfast and got ready to do the mountain walk, but sadly I could not complete the walk because of my knees. But all of my friends said that it was very hard but it was worth it. The others walked on the top of the mountain and a beautiful side. You could see for miles and the walk was fantastic. We walked for five hours and at the end of the walk all of us were very tired because of today. In the evening we had a wellness program with masks, massages, yoga, cold water and stayed up till eleven o'clock. Then we went to bed.

We spent time playing normal football too. It was very funny. Everyone was falling over and Albi was putting people upside down. After playing bubble soccer, we went to a town called Esslingen. It was very nice with shops and spent our money. Then we made way back to the tent camp and had a couple of hours free time. Next, we had dinner at 6pm. The food was okay. Then the Welsh leaders prepared a Welsh evening and we made Welsh cookies and they were amazing. After the welsh cake making we had a disco that we enjoyed because of the lights and DJ Paddy.
