Guten Tag my lovely readers!
Today, I am going to tell you about our weekend trip to the German part of Switzerland. It was just about time to visit the most typical place of this country: ALPS. Just a little warning at the beginning: this post has a looot of blue content:)!Does this scenery not look like a wallpaper? But first things first… We (guess who I went with) left Lausanne (my temporary home) around 8.30 in the morning. It takes less than 2 hours to get to Interlaken and it is a nice chilled highway road. The forecast was not too optimistic but God or whoever up there heard our prayers out and the weather was actually lovely. I realized how much I love autumn and all of these colours around…When we arrived to Interlaken, the first thing I noticed was an amazing fresh mountain air and this wooden statue. Interlaken is a traditional resort town lying between lakes Thunersee and Brienzersee. Just look at the pictures! Is this not the most turquoise water you have ever seen? No filter, nothing, I swear!If it was summer, I would just jump in for sure…Posing because why not?We had a little walk near the lake, took gazillion photos and hit the road once again to our next destination…At least that is what we thought and then I spotted this…The mountains in the back truly look like painted by an artist which brings me to the fact that Mother Nature is the biggest artist… No doubt about that.And as a huge donkey lover, I had to stop by and feed this cutie pie with some apple.One of the saddest and most misused animals in the world, don´t you think?Few more shots because these colours are just unbelievable…One more sick/ill/tired smile… (Yeah, I forgot to mention that 2 days before this trip, I went for a run and due to the colder weather my body really did not enjoy it and gave me a lesson once again.)And let´s go finally!Next stop: Iseltwald, just 10 mins from Interlaken. It is a municipality on the shore of Lake Brienz (which had a similar colour of water actually), it is also a popular tourist destination especially in the winter. Just a few hotels, restaurants, friendly locals and a statue of goral again:).Then we visited Aare Gorge in Meiringen.And here we come! Aare Gorge is a river gorge with icy blue water which was created around 15,000 years ago just at the end of Ice age… Isn´t that wonderful?It is a 3 km nice walk with a slippery surface but the views are so worth it, just take good shoes!I guess I do not even have to comment on this, go and see for yourself:). I kept thinking about how canthe nature actually create this every second of this experience.The price of the ticket is 9CHF which is actually quite reasonable. There is also a little restaurant and shop in case you want to refresh yourself or get a souvenir.I am so glad I could see this place. Honestly, it is a must-see of Switzerland. I found it on Instagram few weeks ago and added to my map immediately. Do you also put a flag everywhere you want to go or already been? Well, it is my current obsession:). It just looks so organized and clear for a travel addict like me…Last but not least, we visited Lauterbrunnen. It is a village surrounded by mountains, perfect for people who love hiking, skiing and all that good stuff. Those beautiful white peaks in the back are Alps and even though I really wanted to touch the snow that day, it was just way too far and unreachable by car.What I think was way better than Alps is definitely this romantic waterfall and walk underneath.And the view from there… Not a big village, is it? Still very magical though…Staubbach Fall drops almost 300 metres from a hanging valley and it is definitely not the only one. This area is well-known for waterfalls flowing all the way from the iceberg peaks.
And we are getting to the end of this road trip. I loooooved all the places so much… I can honestly say that I explored the most of Swiss beauty now. How about you? Have you ever been here or planning to? Let me know, please:)! I am always keen on hearing your suggestions, stories, plans, destinations and all that good stuff.That is all my loves, I hope you enjoyed this little virtual trip with me and just to let you know, I am staying here (in Swiss) for another 2 weeks and then back to my beloved London:). Thank you for stopping by and talk to you very soon!
xxx Lots of love xxx
