I haven't been to Our Chalet YET, but I can tell you that it's already VERY important to my daughter Gabby & I. Our Chalet will be our first ever international trip together & individually and in my family! We will be first generations to leave the US in 2014! Girl Scouting has opened the world to us in so many ways and I think it's wonderful that we can experience all the history that Our Chalet has to offer!
Happy Birthday Our Chalet!!
