Europe / Summer 2014 / Switzerland / Part 8

Switzerland

In the morning we waved goodbye to Paris and started on our very long journey to Switzerland. Having such long days on the bus was testing at times, but I actually really enjoyed having some to myself just to reflect on where we’d been and sleep. I also really got into listening to different albums on my ipod – often my favourites that I’ve listened to millions of times – but also new ones that I hadn’t given a chance yet. After a big day, we arrived in Lauterbrunnen, which is a tiny village nestled in a valley, surrounded by beautiful snow capped mountains.

After the humidity of Paris, Switzerland was definitely a cool change. Luckily we had a nice hot dinner to warm ourselves up!

The next morning most of the group decided to ride along the Jungfraubahn railway to the highest station in Europe, which sits atop the Jungfrau Mountain.

It took us about 2 hours to get to the top but the view was absolutely worth it, even though it was raining and we couldn’t see a whole lot.

We visited the Lindt store but I managed to resist temptation and just accepted a free sample.

There were a few spots where we could go outside and after the initial excitement of seeing and being in the snow, my attention was captured by these crazy Asian tourists.

It was really hard to keep my eyes open, the light was so bright.

This is my attempt at looking photo worthy, as you can see I was in struggle-town.

Afterwards, we went back inside and did some more exploring.

The ice cave was pretty cool.

We headed back down in the afternoon, fortunately, the clouds had cleared up so we could see a lot more.

The town we stayed in was so beautiful.

We were literally surrounded by waterfalls, I had to keep pinching myself to make sure what I was seeing was actually real.

After dinner, we had a fun night out at the bar where we were staying and danced our hearts out.

The next day to our annoyance, the weather cleared up. Ah well, that’s life! On to our next stop…
