We're Sharing Secrets

Where's the fun in having a secret and not being able to share it with even one person? It's practically the first rule of secrets; which kind of go this way-
  • Keep it to yourself for a while. 
  • Convince yourself you'll explode if you don't share it. 
  • Share it ;)   
So, we think we've kept the BIGGEST secret in our stomach for long enough and it is now time to impart the wisdom to you. Here at Trailblazers, we're big on being passionate about life. We love to travel, discover and explore and nothing gives us more happiness than sharing that experience with you. All trips are planned with the same amount of love, attention to detail and excitement, BUT there are some experiences and some journeys, which remain amazing regardless of how many times we've undertaken them previously and we wait all year for them.
Guessed our secret yet? There is one trip we may be slightly partial to and we hope from this year on, you will be too. We're talking about the Trailblazers-Viamonde Ski Camp in the Swiss Alps!!! 

The Ski-Camp is conducted during the last week of December and is for age groups 8-16 and 17-21; which is a graduate camp. How often have we groaned at the thought of a December with the climate of March? How often have we waited hopefully for the infinitesimal sign of chill? And all in vain :( 

Ah, that's just it see. This year will be a lot better and a lot more different if you're quick enough. Bookings for the camp close by end of September so you need to definitely convince your folks at home before then. Why does the skip camp matter so much to us you ask? 
Well for starters, a White Christmas, a lot of us need no more incentive, but just in case you do; here's a few: An actual chocolate factory-a la Willy Wonka! You may not be as lucky as Charlie, but we sure can take you just as close! Get entranced by the aroma of freshly churned chocolate which is second to none, explore a Cheese factory and get in touch with your inner Jerry mouse. Bundle up in warm, colourful winter clothes and take to the slopes with a vengeance. Who knew two strips of wood could bring you so much amusement? 

We did, and so we decided that it's high time you were part of our secret. Come along and we'll share our other secrets with you by the campfire while roasting marshmallows.

Camp Trivia

Maybe not all of us love Dinosaurs as much as Ross Geller from FRIENDS does; but that doesn’t mean we aren’t intrigued by the thought of creatures as massive as the buildings we live in. Man has always been fascinated by every inhabitant on planet Earth, whether existing or extinct. Dinosaurs first appeared on Earth 230 million years ago, during the Triassic period and were the dominant species from the Jurassic to the Cretaceous period. 

Although the word dinosaur means terrible lizard; the name is not really apt for dinosaurs and lizards are not from the same group of reptiles. The most primitive of these types, Eoraptor, was a small meat-eating dinosaur, but dinosaurs are known to be Herbivores, Omnivores or Carnivores.
Since the discovery of dinosaur fossils in the 19th century, interest in the species spread like wildfire and now, there are a lot of museums and parks dedicated all over the world to these fantastic reptiles. 
In India, we now have the Indroda Dinosaur and Fossil Park which is a treasure spreading across a few hundred hectares in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. It is apparently the second largest hatchery of dinosaur eggs in the world and till date, it is the only dinosaur museum in the country. The park comprises of various attractions such as a zoo, an amphitheater, a massive skeleton of sea mammals etc.

Trailblazers-The Outdoor School, conducts trips to this stunning park which can help children and adults alike to feed their curiosity and learn about a species so overwhelming they leave everyone awestruck.
