Another full day of travel ahead! Our next stop is Interlaken, Switzerland. I'm kind of happy to be moving on from Germany and into a new culture, especially because Interlaken is supposed to be lovely. After the several hours transferring here and there, we start to see the huge blue and white snow-capped mountains, and the lakes for which the town is named. Sidenote: I've started experiencing a post-train-sickness sensation. You know when you are on a boat for too long and you feel like you are rocking later when you are on land? I'll be sitting still at a cafe and think I'm moving forward. Ha. Anyway, despite our guidebook naming Interlaken as nothing more than a tourist-heavy passing through town, it's incredibly pretty and the views are unlike anything I've ever seen. Ruaridh gets excited about fondue as we make our way to the hostel. It's cute and impeccably clean (swiss standards) and the beds are comfy. We stop at the Co-op and make dinner back at our hostel, deciding to have the night in (not that it's much of a choice here.) Other note: no idea there was such a huge asian population here. Even some store signs are in korean (i think) and everyone coming in and out of or hostel is korean. So anyway, I gather lots of brochures and we decide tomorrow we will see Lauterbrunnen and the waterfalls.
