    Interlaken Switzerland

    September 10, 2017 in Switzerland

    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.Read more

    Interlaken. A destination, a beginning

    May 7, 2017 in Switzerland

    Interlaken is a big country tourist town. There are plenty of shops restaurants and hotels to keep you fed and comfy. It was raining heaps so we rested up here. Interlaken is also the beginning for ventures in the Jungfrau region. And that's where we are heading next...

    We settled here for a few days after the long commute from Provence. Weather was average, waiting for it to break so we can head up the slopes. Rode up Harden Klum for a great view and a cheap lunch. Successfully shopped for shoes and gifts.Read more

    Day 52 - Gstaad to Interlaken, 50 miles

    June 6, 2016 in Switzerland

    Wow what a ride through some of the most breathtaking scenery I've ever seen.

    Starting out if Gstaad it was the biggest climb of the day but incredible views back down over Gstaad and to the mountains beyond. Once over the climb it was mostly downhill through picture postcard villages with mountains either side to the town of Spiez on the shores of Lake Thun. 30 miles of simply the most stunning riding you will ever come across.

    From Spiez it was an easy 20 miles hugging the shore line of Lake Thun round to the town of Interlaken inbetween lakes Thun and Brienz. Inbetween lakes and with mountains either side it was a pretty dramatic place to stay. Very popular with tourists especially Koreans who have seemed to have made it a home from home and adrenaline junkies of the flying kind including paragliders and skydivers. Evening came and found a good 'bier house' in town with a couple of young American backpackers and a couple of beers was a great way to finish off a great day.

    Zu Gast bei Erich von Däniken

    August 24, 2016 in Switzerland

    Im Februar 2015 folgte ich einer Einladung von Erich von Däniken nach Interlaken und zum Beatenberg, seiner Heimat. Zusammen mit meinem Freund und Kollegen Christian Wellmann wurde dies ein toller Wochenendtrip in einer atemberaubenden Landschaft und mit wahnsinnig interessanten Gesprächen.

    Day 49: Interlaken, Switzerland

    August 8, 2017 in Switzerland

    Today was awesome!

    We went Rafting in Interlaken and it was a lot of fun. We ended up choosing the day it chose to storm so we started rafting in the pouring rain, but it ended up being sunny the minute we pulled into the lake (which was at the end). Regardless of the rain, we all still had a lot of fun.

    We were on a boat of five so we had to do quite a few practice drills. Since our boat was lighter, we had more of a chance of flipping compared to the other two full boats. We each had to get in the water and be rescued. Since we were an odd number, I was rescued by our "Rafter Master" (not sure what they are called) and he ended up pulling me right out of the water with one arm onto my face in the boat. And then we had to rescue the other side so I ran to the front to pull in one of our boat mates and everyone else forgot to pull in Zoë. We all had a good laugh. We also all got beat. You don't realize how much of a workout Rafting can be!

    After rafting, we went back to take our showers and then went to relax in our favourite cafe. We had the best brownie and berry banana cake. When we got back to our room, our roommates had their portable rice cooker out and we're making a few servings. It was certainly one of the more interesting roommate stories that I've had on this trip.
