    Goodbye Uznach and hello Interlaken

    August 25 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    In der Schweiz haben wir größtenteils Mautstrecken vermieden und dafür den Ausblick der ländlichen Umgebung genoßen.
    Leckere Kuhluft, die Glocken der Kuhhalsbänder erklingen, saftiges grünes Gras, kurvenreiche Anstiege auf die Berge und in manchen Region verspürten wir eine sehr gute Energie.
    In den gestrigen Abendstunden 21 Uhr sind wir bei sehr gute Freunden Nina & Torsten in Uznach angekommen. Sie verwöhnten uns mit leckerem Essen😋. 1.Gang war selbstgemachte Käse-Hackfleisch-Suppe, 2.Gang Potatoesecken mit karamellisierten Möhren und einem Quarkdip, 3. Gang lockerem Pflaumenstreuselkuchen😚😋.
    Robi übernahme sich schon voll beim 2. Gang und hatte nicht mehr auf dem Schirm den 3. Gang.
    Der kleine Zwischenstopp war kurz und doch sehr schön bis Mitternacht mit unseren Freunden zu reden.
    Nachts erklingten regelmäßig mehrere Kirchenglocken in der Ortschaft.

    Frühmorgens haben wir schön die Frühstücksstullen und Kaffee im Gepäck 🥪☕und los geht's nach Interlaken zum 4-Tages Seminar (Rhetorik).
    Entlang der Route hinter den vernebelten Berge ging die Sonne☀️ auf.

    Its all about the Journey

    October 23 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌙 43 °F

    As a kid, young adult and adult it was always about the destination for me. The journey seemed to be the obstacle that I had to overcome. I don't know for sure, but I think in some ways it served me well. But now I have discovered that the journey is so, so much more enjoyable than I thought possible.
    We had just left Dijon, France when we last dropped a line. Sorry it has taken so long. So here we go. The Journey continues.
    Dijon was another of Caroline’s ideas. Guess what she loves. Haha. We stayed in in an Airbnb in the countryside. Took some nice long walks and went into the town of Beaune for a tour of the Fallot Mustard Museum. It was interesting and entertaining. We were both really impressed with this whole region. Next stop, Interlaken Switzerland.
    A lovely drive especially as we climbed up into the Alps. Here we stayed in a nice hotel just on the edge of town. The guy running the place was originally from South Africa. And very helpful. We spent two and a half days here, walking, driving and dining. Maybe a little sleep too. What a beautiful place. The Alps as they rise all around you. Had to do a drive to one of those towns you see way up the mountains. Switchback after switchback.
    It was recommended that we get up to Jungfraujoch which entails a couple of gondola trips and a train to get one up to the top of Europe. Unfortunately there was tons of cloud cover so we decided to skip it and save it for the next time we visit. Have to say we were a little bummed. https://www.jungfrau.ch/en-gb/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe/buy-jungfraujoch-ticket/?no_cache=1
    Hope this link works. OK I am going for my breakfast. Will catch you up on the rest of the adventure a little later.
    Quick question. Why there were so many East Indian and Middle Eastern restaurants in Interlaken? It was not what was expected.

    Über die Glaner Alpen

    August 13, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Schade aber das Wetter trieb uns vom Klöntalersee weiter. Also am besten einmal schaun wie es hinter den Glaner Alpen so aussieht. Bernd trotze dem Pass über die Alpen problemlos. Immer wieder aufregend solche Höhen und so klein windige Straßen. Maren brauchte am Vierwaldstättersee erstmals die erste naturbelassene Waschung :)
    In Interlaken gab es die ersten Spaghetti und schorlieren with a view. Und ja der Wetter forecast sah gut aus.✊

    Am Abend haben wir die nächsten Reden vorbereitet und noch im Bett 4 gewinnt gespielt.

    ❤❤❤ toll hier inmitten der Berge

    Interlaken Air BnB

    December 23, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 37 °F

    Arrived at my Air BnB. I booked it for four days. This will give me a home base over Christmas and a place to eat if everything else is closed. Plus there is a laundry which is a plus. My sink washing is getting good but a washer will do better on my pants.

    Santa even left me a gift to open! I am one happy traveler.

    Lay down in the bed, open the curtains and get a good picture of the view. That is the view from the sidewalk of you laying on your bed.

    The Alps

    October 24 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    It was a beautiful clear crisp fall morning when we left Interlaken. Destination Lake Bled, Slovenia with a one night stop on the way. Did I mention the fall colors. WoW! We traversed the Alps for hours and hours. Every turn on the road brought another beautiful picture postcard into view. It would never get old in my opinion. If I am not mistaken we got up to over 9,000 feet above sea level.
    I think we went up and down on serious elevations three times the first day. And one descent was a true nail biter. Outside lane with thousand feet drop off at the edge, no barrier and switchback after switchback. I have told a few people that this drive was better than Yellowstone with the exception of the wildlife. Unlike Yellowstone, all we saw was signs for deer but none were actually sighted.
    We rested in a small town up in the Alps, just over the Austrian border called Nauders. Cosy little spot with one open restaurant where we had Pizza and rested for the next leg of the journey.

    The next day we grabbed breakfast before our continued descent. Bled was the destination and no other plans until one of the guests at our accomodation told us about the town of Merano which is in Italy and where a third of the population speak German because it is so close to Austria. This was a nice find. Have to say that I would like to get back there and stay a while. Wanted to get to Bled before dark so hung around for an hour or so. Had a glass of wine and strolled along the river that seemed to wind its way through the middle of town. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g187860-Merano_Province_of_South_Tyrol_Trentino_Alto_Adige-Vacations.html

    Back in the car and off to Bled. We checked in to another great find by Caroline. Best Co-pilot ever. (CE: awwww ❤️❤️) We went out for dinner to a spot that Jack and Ally recommended. Slovenian Food. Yummy but very rich. Needed a walk after. Lamb shank and smoked trout.
    Lake Bled is about 3km to walk around which we did the next morning.

    While at breakfast before the walk I thought I would seek more info about the hotel we were staying in as it has a majestic feel to it. As it so happened, Tito loved Lake Bled and liked to stay there during the summers and so built a summer residence. This was now our hotel. The rooms were massive. https://www.bled.si/en/accommodation/list-of-accommodations/16/vila-bled
    Next stop Croatia.

    Interlaken

    September 23 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Ob 16:27 prispema v Interlaken. Utrujena. Vse bi dal za bolj udobno obutev saj me bolijo noge.
    Presenečen, saj je za to poskrbel Dejan brez da bi vedel za to. Super. Plačama parkirnino, ter se odpeljema v center Interlakna.

    Sledil je krajši sprehod, nato pa kava ob parku hotela Viktorija.
    Interlaken je lep, a nimama energije da bi ga prehodila. Naj to ostane za naslednjič.
    Sedaj pa malo počitka, kavica in Coca cola, nato pa pot proti Siebnenu.

    El Azteca Restaurant

    December 23, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 34 °F

    I need a Mexican food infusion. It looks right. No chips though. The margarita is good.

    Meals take forever here. The food is quick but paying takes forever. The waiters don’t seem in a rush to get you out. You have to beg for your check.

    I propose to have an American restaurant where I employee American waitresses and they serve everyone like they do in the states. Also the reservation system is messed up. They turn away walk-ins who arrive at 6:00 because the tables is reserved for 7:15

    Did it mention the the entire restaurant seats 30. 25 inside 6 outside.

    Tag 6 - Biwakieren auf dem Hardergrat

    July 21 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Ausgeschlafen und mit vollen Bäuchen verließen wir gegen Mittag die Kandersteger Region. Auf der Fahrt zitterten uns bereits die Füße vor unserem nächsten großen Abenteuer: Biwakieren auf dem Hardergrat. Nach einer kurzen Mittagspause auf einem Bahnhofs-Parkplatz in Interlaken machten wir uns mit 20kg Zusatzgepäck auf, die steilen 1200hm zu bezwingen. Beim Anstieg stießen wir wirklich an unsere Grenzen, doch wurden mit einem atemberaubenden 360 Grad-Panorama auf den Brienzersee, das Augstmatthorn und die leicht bewölkten 4000er Berge belohnt, traumhafter Sonnenuntergang inklusive. Da wir die Nacht im Biwak in einem Naturschutzgebiet verbrachten, durften wir zwei Eulen beim nächtlichen Jagen beobachten. Ein wirklich einmaliges Erlebnis!Read more
