Days 5 & 6: Lauterbrunnen, Finding Our Way

We successfully mastered the European transportation system by getting from Evian, France to Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.

It really was kind of simple:
  1. Take a boat from Evian to Lausanne
  2. Get on the subway from the shore to the train station in Lausanne
  3. Take the Lausanne train to Bern
  4. Miss the connection to Interlaken because apparently Swiss-German public bathroom require you to pay so we had to . . .
  5. Hit the ATM
  6. Get some food from McDonalds (mainly to get change), 
  7. FINALLY manage to get the bathroom to work for us, use the ticket office computer to find the next train AND then . . .
  8. Take the train from Bern to Interlaken
  9. Take the train from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen
  10. Ask for directions to our hotel twice because when people point and tell you in meters how far the hotel is, I have NO idea how much walking that actually entails.

And . . . we . . . are. . . here.

No, this area does not look exactly like Rivendell. It looks better.  As Miley Cyrus would say it, this place is beautiful like “yeah.”  Actually more like what Joey Lawrence used to say in Blossom, this place is gorgeous like “woah.”

The day after we got here we hiked and it was pretty amazing.  I’ll let the pictures do the talking. 

Diana + big mountain valley = happiness
That's Diana on top to provide a little perspective.

And I hope all of you have a good "fahrt" too.  heehee
