Interlaken, Switzerland

Another town in the Swiss canton of Berne, Interlaken is (as the name may suggest) inbetween two lakes, Brienzersee (Lake Brienz) and Thunersee (Lake Thun).  Given the fact that Interlaken is also smack dab in the middle of mountains as well, it's the perfect place for adrenaline junkies.  There are also some gorgeous natural wonders in the surrounding area, but they are much more easily accessible if one has a car, which we did not.

While summer is distinctly not fondue season, it was a great idea to forgo seasonality and eat a giant bowl of cheese.

I bet the view is incredible.  I'm waaaay too much of a scaredy cat, but that view!

Hey, so what's that globe-y thingy in Interlaken? I remember seeing that while on the train back in 2007.

Love your photos by the way, thank you for sharing!

Hmm, I'm not sure what you're talking about, I don't recall a globe in Interlaken...

I'm glad you've enjoyed the photos!
