Dreaming of Switzerland...

At the end of July, I have a holiday booked to Interlaken in Switzerland, and I am getting so ridiculously excited that I keep looking at pictures and excursions at every chance I get! I decided on Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland region after being recommended by a few friends, and I am definitely glad that I listened to them after looking at all of the amazing pictures and videos online. Having recently been on beach holidays, I thought it was time for a change.

Here are just a few reasons as to why I am so excited:






Some trips that I am planning on doing include going up to the 'top of Europe' (The Jungfrau), which has the highest railway station in the whole of Europe as well as an Ice Palace and restaurant; the waterfalls tour including some of the best in Europe; a trip to the Schilthorn "Piz Gloria", which is actually where a James Bond film was shot and has a revolving restaurant; the Harder Kulm (viewing platform of Interlaken); as well as some of the cute, little villages. I will definitely be buying some cheese and chocolate while I'm there too! I will also be in Switzerland for Swiss National Day, meaning that I will get to see all of the celebrations that go on, including a lot of fireworks displays that are meant to sound pretty amazing with the echoes of the mountains. I have been looking into paragliding too which looks incredible, but I may back at at the last minute for this one...
