    Trummelbach Falls

    September 12, 2017 in Switzerland

    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

    Day 0 & 1: Drive to sunlight = Suisse

    October 9, 2017 in Switzerland

    It is time for a well deserved holiday, the rain drove us away, literally ;-) We only had reserved 2 weeks off from work. We had a good plan and nothing booked or fixed so we could do whatever we wanted. We drove off around 3PM on the Monday after packing that same day. We managed to get to Oberkirch in Schwarzwald in Germany, we booked a nice accommodation that was in a managable distance. The holiday was started and we were already feeling healthier and much better than the day before.
    So the next day after a nice German breakfast we tried to walk a nice route in the Schwarzwald, After 15minutes of walking in the fog and when rain started we said that this wasn't what we had in mind. We moved back straight away and did not stop until we had blue skies and a nice scenery. Lauterbrunnen. It is almost like a fairytale, mountains rising up straight from the ground and here and there waterfalls came falling down the edges. We planted our stuff in a hostel like accomodation and moved out to do some exercise and see the area. This ended up in a 17km long hike up and down the whole mountain (well we took the train to skip the boring part). Walking up was the heaviest so we managed to get to the top before 5PM, the sun was still shining but we needed to get back since we expected it to be dark around 7:30PM. The sun however did off course not go down on the horizon it went down behind the highest mountain so after 30minutes it was already cooling off and within the hour it was a whole lot darker. The journey down should have taken us 2,5 hours but we walked slower than planned. Especially when we walked through the woods, it took us a whole hour longer (the sun was gone and it became pitch black on some parts) it was a little to much excitement after the long day but we managed to get to Wengen around 20:45 to find a place that we could finally regain energy with a lovely meal ;-) we took a late train back down to Lauterbrunnen and a wonderfull long day and the story that comes with it :D.

    Day 47: Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

    August 6, 2017 in Switzerland

    Today it rained, rained and rained, so we went to a cafe to figure out our game plan for the day and take advantage of the Swiss chocolate (or at least I did). Zoe is all about the cappuccinos. She actually made me laugh right when I was taking a picture as she made fun of me for being so excited about my hot chocolate and cake. The blueberry cake was exactly like how my grandmother used to make it! And the bathrooms had black toilet paper. She would have loved Switzerland. <3

    After our snacks, we took on the walk to Trummelbach Falls. It had stopped raining so we were confident that we could do the 40 minute walk. It starting pouring on us half way through and we got soaked, but we heard that the Falls were a good activity for a rainy day (the falls are inside a cave). Turns out, it's only inside for a small portion so we still got rained on, but the falls were really cool. It drains from the three largest Alps in the area and the current is so strong. We met a nice lady from Wisconsin who got lost on the walk there so we walked all together and she was nice enough to take pictures for us.

    After the falls, we took the bus back as it was pouring and we were so excited to shower. Once again, one of the best showers of this trip. We then made dinner, chicken with zucchini, mushrooms and pesto pasta. It turned out really good and we have leftovers for our lunch tomorrow. We also met two girls from Oregon who we will be meeting up with in Munich and a nice couple from Washington. Seems like everyone we talk to is heading to Munich from here so we seem to be heading in the right direction. :)

    Day 48: Jungfraujoch & Lauterbrunnen

    August 7, 2017 in Switzerland

    Today we travelled to one of the largest glacier Alps in Europe, the Jungfraujoch. It was really neat (and painfully expensive), but it was totally worth it. We saw incredible views, went in the ice palace, walked in the snow and ate our lunch overlooking the glaciers.

    After we got back around 2:30, we read there was a community BBQ at the pool so I suggested we go check it out and spend some time at the pool. Turned out there wasn't much of a BBQ or people for that matter, but we enjoyed a nice afternoon nonetheless. The pool was overlooking the Staubbach Falls and the Alps. It was weird going from 0 degrees on the Jungfraujoch where we were freezing to sitting in the sun dying of heat. 12,000 feet surely makes a difference.Read more

    The mountains of Switzerlans!

    May 27, 2015 in Switzerland

    First we set from France for a 6 hour journy on our busabout tour bus to the amazing views and nature of Switserland. First stop, the small but very beautiful town named after a bear, Bern. Wow. Just wow. Such a beautiful town... you hear the sounds of bells ringing every 15 minutes (including at night) from the surrounding churches, to tell the time, or weddings or even funerals. Them town has a lovely aqua lake which streams throughout the city, and you are even allowed to drink and swim in it in Summer! However it was wayyy to cold! We didnt do much stuff which cost money..as the frank (currency of switzerland) was very expensive! So pre made pasta salad from the local supermarket was what we survived on! We did lots of walks around Bern, such as through a rose garden, the botanical gardens, and the 6km walk around the Lake! Unfortunetly the Bears which are located around the lake were not seen, as the town were recostructive their new home, which no longer is in a pitt. Very disapointed about the bears, but very hapoy we stopped in the small town! Next stop Lauterbrunnen.

    Lauterbrunnen...what can i say... how do i describe such an amazing town... well first of all, for those who have read the Lord of the Rings... this spectacular place was one of the writers inspiration to write. Tall mountains with snow on top, and you cant even see the top as clouds hide the peak. We arrived at 6pm that night, so we went to the local resaurant with our new Australian friend! Very expensive, however i was lucky enough to try rosti, a swiss potato dish for free, as they accidentlt gave me two meals!

    Lauterbrunnen is already 800 metres above sea level..and the well known swiss alps mountain 'jungfrajoch' is a 2.5 hour journy by train even further up from the mountain. On the first complete day we got the train uo the mountain, costing us 130 frank each which is almost $400 togeather! Very very expensive... but deffinetly worth it. Although it was a cloudy day...it was still amazing to see all the mountain..and well real snow, unlike Australia with their snow guns! We walked 3km up the mountain...with wearing almost nothing at all since we packed for summer weather (leggins and a big jacket for me). The air was so thin, it made you very tired, and weak! Just shows how much our boys rely on oxygen! We saw ice sculpters of bears and penguins, and even a big ice tunnel which you could practical slide on with your sneakers! Once we returned to Lauterbrunnen, Jason had a cat nap, while i decided to do some exercise... what a mistake it was..as i cramped while doing squats! Just shows i use my muscles enough on this holiday! For dinner we went to a pub and had soup, burgers and chips, with nice swiss cider to finish it off!

    The next morning it was raining, however this did not stop up! We visited the spectacular mountain waterfalls 'trummel bachfalle', which are water fall caves inside the mountain! I was soaked after this adventure, causing me to have to walk back with wet socks, and need to get changed, before doing a small day trip inti the city of interlaken! Interlaken has a beautiful long lake with mountains which surround it! We also got to have a nice burger at a local takeaway shop, and visit all the tourist shops! Switzerland are known for their watches and obsession to know the time! So there are watch shops every 20m! And not cheap... about 250 franks each...and still i see tourist by them!

    Tonight we cooked leftovers on the stove, and are going to an exclusive pub for only busabout and contiki members! We are leaving early in the morning at 8am, for next stop Munich, followed by a small town in Austria!

    Speak then xxx
