and we're off!
One day we would love to stay at the Grandhotel Giessbach. It was just beyond beautiful, and we would like to explore the area a bit further.
Next stop was Brienz. Again, we didn’t have any plans, which made this stop a bit uneventful. There were still some highlights though! We ended up picking up some gyros from some no big deal restaurant and found a spot to eat them at the marina. This ended up being perfect. The weather was pretty, the lake was beautiful, and we had some friends (swans and coots) join us too. After eating, we took a stroll along the lake, where there is a public trail/park.
After stopping by an ATM, and waiting way to long for the next boat, because we got the schedule confused…we were off again! This boat actually ended up stopping back by Giessbach, which was perfect. This time I had some extra Francs, which gave me the opportunity to hand them off to the cogwheel operator before the boat pushed off. He was confused at first, but was overly thrilled when he realized I was paying my balance. It was a little memory that we won’t forget.
Our friend giving us the thumbs up!Back in Interlaken, we took a short break before heading to dinner. Since we were going to the same place from the night before, we at least took a different route. This time, we walked along the Aare River, and it was another fun unplanned experience. We found a cool dam, a bridge separating Interlaken and Unterseen, which had the most perfect sign at the midpoint. There is a little inside joke between us about the Interlaken Ram. Whenever we see it, we would put our arms up in the air and make a crazy noise. I am sure the locals just loved it.
