Happy Birthday Hayley…!

19th October (Interlaken)

Today, Saturday, we are staying in Interlaken. It is Hayley’s birthday and the choice of residence was either the Black Forest, Germany or Interlaken, Switzerland. What a choice…

Interlaken won… and there just happens to be one of those tree-climbing parks here, a good one. 39 swiss francs (35 of your Great Britsh pounds). Sounds a lot but you can spend as long as you like there swinging about the trees, walking between them, bungee jumping and zip wiring.

See you later…

Del drops the birthday girl off to tree climb and he sets off into town to get some birthday goodies for her later.

Swiss chocolate and “expensive” fizz!

A great time is had in the tree park but now what to do about dinner. It’s between a traditional local wood hut type, stew and dumplings place or a 64-degree incline, 1.5km uphill train to the top of a place called Harder Kulm. Now if you don’t do anything else here in this post at least look at some of our Instagram pics in the links above. It was a truly brilliant experience. and one that we thoroughly enjoyed.

A great train trip, dinner some folklore music and the best views EVER!

What a great birthday Hayley had…

    Belated Happy Birthday Hayley! Sounds like you had a wonderful day and we have loved reading your adventures. We also stayed at Camping Alpenblick with an ACSI card and like you, took advantage of the free bus right outside the site to travel both ways. We saw that the pleasure boat from Interlaken to the far end of Lake Thun was half price on Monday’s so we did the trip. It was quite memorable with beautiful scenery, and it dropped us off late afternoon opposite the camp site on our return. Enjoy the remainder of your holiday and have a safe trip home soon.

      Thanks for your mail. We had the most wonderful time in Switzerland. It’s expensive yes but it is a great place to see. We do intend to come again for a much longer time and see a lot more…
