Traveling on the Golden Pass through Switzerland. My 1st cog rail experience, which sounded much like heading uphill on a roller coaster, a little unnerving at 1st. 🙂
Attending a class at the Schuh Chocolateria. An afternoon well spent. I highly recommend doing this.
One of many shops along the Höheweg, Interlaken’s main street
At a Japanese Garden
Walking along the beautiful Aare river
Fearless girl riding the Harder Kulm incline train.
Hiking Beautiful Harder Kulm. Much less expensive (and warmer:) than Jungfrau.
Harder Kulm- An unforgettable view just above Interlaken.
Jordan and me on what turned out to be a rare, clear, beautiful day for us in Switzerland. Harder Kulm.
Traditional Swiss house in Wilderswil, where we stayed, a stone’s throw from Interlaken.

Stone wall- Harder Kulm
Total whiteout at the top of Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest railway station. Avalanche warnings kept us from doing anything fun, well anything at all. Bring snacks and lots of bottled water- Altitude sickness is no joke and water is €6, even tap.
The Florida sunshine girl wanted so badly to see snow! Note the summer hiking sandals and plastic baggie wrapped feet. She’s also wearing two pair of men’s socks purchased at a grocery just outside of the train station.
Kleine Scheidegg, about the halfway point between Interlaken and Jungfrau. A nice little stop to have a slice of apple strudel and something hot to drink and/or a beer:)
A view from the train
This part of Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, but by far THE most expensive place I’ve ever been.
Interlaken on a beautiful summer day- at the base of the mountains.
My tiny travel bug- The happiest girl in the world.
Another traditional house in Wilderswil.
Wilderswil- On the walk back to our hotel.
Heading to Jungfrau. Train tickets for 2- almost $300, worth it? Only if the weather is clear at the top, Be sure to ask.
