We headed out about 9:30 this morning for Schilthorn. We took the train from Interlaken West to Interlaken Ost, just about a 5 minute ride. Then onto another train to Lautenbraunen, then a gondola, another train, 2 more gondolas, with a stop in Murren (a beautiful alpine village, no cars, then finally arrived at Schilthorn. We enjoyed the 360 degree view of the Alps for quite a while, and the cool temps. It was 14 C or about 58 F, then went inside to the revolving restaurant and enjoyed the view while we enjoyed a light lunch. We chose the soup buffet and had hungarian goulash soup, after I had finished my bowl Cindy asked what meat did I think was in it? I told her I'd rather not know since it was so good!
On the way back we sat in Murren and watched the para-gliders take off from one of the ski slopes and ride the thermals up through the valleys. You can see dozens of them in the valleys soaring overhead, it's fun to hear them whooping it up when they start spinning up in an updraft. Then we started our trip back to Interlaken, gondolas and trains. Really an enjoying voyage. We stopped and picked up fresh pears, peaches, apples, figs, bread, and a bottle of wine for dinner. The fruit is very good.
So another gorgeous day in the Swiss Alps. Tomorrow we might take a lake tour on a classic side paddle wheeler. Tanja at the B&B said there are castles along one of the lakes so we may have to check that out.
