  1. A fondue? I’m going to put this on my list for next year.

  2. fondue meet? we are so there! any hotel recommendation? we couldn’t find any from the links given.

  3. We are so there? Ooh, I bet you’re “studly”. That sounds so “studly” Capt. Capacitor! A few years ago I stayed at “Clos de Sadex”, a small hotel on the banks of Lake Geneva. I don’t think it’s far from Le Coty. Check and see if it’s still there.

  4. studly? i’m a lady who happens to be a geek. next time, don’t get fooled by usernames 🙂

    thanks for the recommendation.

  5. Thanks Robin for sharing.

    We already arrange a special price for an Hotel 10 km far away.

    Just tell us if You’re interested 🙂

    We also have more proposal, for information we are about 1 hour and half driving from Geneva, Zürich or Basel, 2 and a half from St-Gallen, 3 and a half from Ticino.

  6. Just a wonderful idea!

  7. I’ll be there with the family tomorrow 😀

  8. Robin I guess that it’s not easy to find a fondue in Yeovil lol
    A fondue is made with 90% of cheese and 10% of white wine , kirsch & garlic .
    Then you plunge your piece of bread and enjoy .

    • Ah ha, I know,,,,,,,
      I have had the pleasure of eating there but in the summer time, lol.
      Also, if my memory is serving me right I had one with you while wearing a green jumper.

    • What? No meat?

      I’ve always wanted to try a good fondue though. Especially after reading “Asterix in the Alps”. I should have thought about this yesterday!

  9. I know some people who will enjoy that fondue at Swizz really gooooood…… the bastardzzzzzz

  10. It was such a nice event.
