Interlaken + Grindelwald

2017.05.26 – 2017.05.28

Switzerland, we have learned, has very different public/bank holidays than we are used to in the US. This is particularly true during the Easter Season. One such holiday, the Feast of the Ascension, was conveniently timed to give us a long weekend to meet up with college friends, Glenn and Natasha, who were traveling through Europe. We met them in Interlaken (in the mountainous Bernese Oberland region of central Switzerland) and traveled via several regional trains to begin a hike in Grindelwald. True to Swiss form, everywhere you looked was picturesque. We had a great time hiking (accidentally climbing over 1,000 feet…), stuffing our faces with all the potatoes (looking at you rösti), and catching up with our friends. We ended the evening by continuing to Geneva. The next morning, Glenn and Natasha headed on to another friend’s wedding in France, and Parker and I returned to Interlaken for a lovely night in an adorable b&b. We returned home the next day feeling well rested and accomplished from exploring more of our new home.

An early morning train ride from Zürich to Interlaken was so worth it! The weather was perfect.

How is this possibly real life?

Paragliders were everywhere! We didn’t have time on this trip, but we have decided to add it to our “bucket list.”

We stayed at the most adorable B&B, Maison Bergdorf. It was super cute, lovely location, and wonderful hospitality. We enjoyed evening cocktails on the terrace and breakfast the following morning with freshly made croissants (that were life changing).
