    Shopping und Heimflug

    January 28 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    Nach dem wie mehr oder weniger Sonne tanken konnten machten wir uns auf den Weg zurück mach Bangkok. Also erst 2 Stunden auf der Fähre und dann 7 Stunden im Bus. Um 9 Uhr Abends kamen wie in Bangkok an und assen im Hotel eine Nudelsuppe. Für mehr fehlte uns die Kraft.
    Am nächsten Morgen starteten wir zur Einkaufsrunde. Dafür machtwn wir uns nochmals auf den Weg zum grossen Wochenendmarkt. Mit einer grossen Einkaufsliste bewaffnet legten wir los. Nach ca. 3 Stunden hatten wir fast alles zusammen. Etwas erschöpft ging es kurz ins Hotel und gleich wieder weiter.
    Gegenüber der grossen Shopping Mall gibt es einen riesigen convinient Store. Dort kaufen wir und einen kleinen Handgepäckkoffer. Sonst können wir all die Sachen gar nicht nach Hause bringen.
    Abends suchen wir dann einmal mehr ein Restaurant und geniessen noch ein letztes Patthai.

    Am nächsten Morgen stehen wir um 11.30 am Flughafen und merken, dass unser Flug eine Halbestunde früher geht, als wir dachten. Ooops. 😂
    Deshalb kriegen wir dann auch keine Plätze mehr nebeneinander. Etwas züggiger geht es zur Passkontrolle, wo wir noch gleich einen Stempel mehr sammeln. Wir sind aus Versehen einen Tag zu lange geblieben. Sorry Thailand.
    Danach stehen wir in einer Warteschlange, wo wir plötzlich alle wieder verstehen. Nächster Halt: Zürich.

    Nach 12 langen Stunden und 5 Filmen landen wir. Dort werden wir auch schon von Freunden und Annatinas Mami abgeholt. In Zürich ist es 1 Grad und es schneit.

    Wir sind beide nun gesund und muntee zu Hause, suchen neue Stellen und eine Wohnung.
    Nach 148 Tagen und über 40400 Kilometer endet somit unser Abenteuer Südostastien. Es war nicht immer einfach aber ekne wunderbare Erfahrung. Wir haben viele neue Länder und Freunde getroffen. Jetzt geniessen wir unsere Heimat und unsere Familien und Freunde wieder. Es war aber sicher nicht unsere letzte Reise.

    Gimmelwald

    September 13, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    About 30-40 minutes walk (give or take a 100 photos) from Mürren is the quiet village of Gimmelwald. A lovely nature walk with cows, goats, sheep, chickens, vegetable gardens, and mountains all around. Beautiful clean air!
    Population (2016) is 130. We ate at the only restaurant/pub, Pension Gimmelwald, and had a wonderful view and a delicious bowl of vegetable soup with fresh bread. Perfect!
    Farming and tourism are the main source of income today. Farmers raise hay on tiny plots of land to feed small herds of cows.

    Allmendhubel Mürren

    September 14, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Not a great day for hiking today but we jumped right in and gave it an shot! Caught the funicular to the Allmendhubel (1,932 m), a hill above Mürren. A restaurant is located near the top as well as a Flower Park for the kids and a Flower Trail (in Summer) leads past 150 different alpine flowers including gentians, alpine roses and edelweiss and some interesting medicinal herbs. However, in September, and in the pouring rain, there is not so much to see. The clear mountain air, and fantastic views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau combined with the 'dampened' tranquillity of the Alps made up for lack of blooms. We then got on with the intended nature hike back down the hill to our home base of Mürren. The paved path wound its way down the hill turning into a grass path and finally into a rocky/dirt/tree roots path but all quite easy to traverse. It was a good hike in mostly light persistent rain. The rain has now set in for the afternoon but is predicted to clear for our cable-car ride to Schilthorn tomorrow morning. Let's hope!Read more

    Mürren Switzerland

    September 13, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Mürren is perched on the edge of an 800 m high cliff, rising up from the Lauterbrunnen valley in the Jungfrau region. You can see the Eiger, Mönch, Breithorn, most of the Jungfrau, and many other mountains from here. There are no cars, mountains all around, green slopes and forests and many hiking trails. Oh the serenity 😊!Read more

    Murren- up in the Alps

    September 13, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    We are now staying for 2 nights up in the Swiss Alps. To reach Murren we travelled first by cablecar then mountain train. Not possible to take the car so we've left it in Lauterbrunnen car park. We then walked to the close by village of Gimmelwald. Neither Murren or Gimmelwald have cars (except for a couple of locals) and are everything you would expect to see in a Swiss Alpine village. Surrounded by snow capped mountains, chilly fresh air, goats & cows ringing their bells and amazing views! to the big 3 peaks- Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau! Snow is forecast for tomorrow! Murren is also where you catch the cable car to Schilthorn- the mountain peak with the restaurant where they filmed James Bond's 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. Maybe some 007 action awaits us at the top of the Schilthorn??Read more

    Schilthorn

    September 15, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ -6 °C

    Today was our last chance to go to Schilthorn, (2,970 metres (9,744 ft)), which lies above the village of Mürren. It featured in the 1969 James Bond movie 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. It was the hideout of Bond's enemy Blofeld, and the place was called Piz Gloria for that occassion. That name is still being used for the Schilthorn. From Mürren a cable car leads to its summit where you get the most amazing 360-degree panoramic view of the “Swiss skyline” including Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. We had a cuppa in the revolving restaurant Piz Gloria and watched the world go round - the top of the world that is.
    We stopped off at Birg - where you get a bottomless perspective from its “Skyline Walk” and the “Thrill Walk” - by this time the clouds came rolling in so it was 10 second glimpses of the mountains from here. Not to worry - we could not have asked for better views from the Schilthorn. Enjoyed the whole 007 experience too. We now leave Mürren and head to Schaffhausen, on the upper Rhine River, in a wine-growing area near the German border.

    Interlaken Switzerland

    September 10, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Our accommodation is not in Interlaken but in Unterseen which is about 1.7km west of Interlaken. Unterseen seems a popular tourist destination judging by the numbers here today but there are plenty of tourist shops here to amuse them. So many watch stores which is to be expected as the Swiss are known for their watches. I think every second shop is selling watches!
    On a clear day here it is possible to see the mountains Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Today was not one of those clear days but it was warmish and sunny - maybe tomorrow.

    Trummelbach Falls

    September 12, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    They are Europe's largest subterranean water falls and are located in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, often called the valley of 72 waterfalls. The Trümmelbach Falls are the world's only glacier waterfalls that are accessible underground by lift, galleries, tunnels, paths and platforms. The Trümmelbach alone drains the mighty glacier defiles of Eiger (3967 m), Mönch (4099 m) and Jungfrau (4158 m) and carries 20,200 tons of boulder detritus per year. It also carries down to the valley - up to 20,000 liters of water per second.
    The falls are a series of ten glacier-waterfalls inside the mountain. Fantastic!

    Trummelbach Falls

    September 12, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Today we visited the fantastic Trummelbach Falls near Lauterbrunnen. The Falls are in the Valley of the 72 Falls. They are the world's only glacial falls accessible underground by lift, pathways & tunnels. Incredible! And so is the noise as the water roars through at a flow of 3 cubic metres a second! We took the lift up through the mountain and then walk down. (Many, many, many steps!) Another amazing day in the Swiss Alps.Read more
