It was time for more travels so we organised some close friends, packed our bags & headed off to Switzerland. We met Jo & Sharif at Gatwick and after searching the airport, & finding, Jacs lost jacket we boarded the plane for a bumpy old ride to Zurich. We landed safely, grabbed our hire car and headed off into the night on the wrong side of the road. It was tough unlearing all the driving skills from my past and spinning them around but hopefully that feeling passes and I get comfortable pretty quickly. We had to drive about an hour to our first nights stop at Merlischachen in a traditional chalet. We knew that out there in the darkness Switzerland was ready to wow us. It was too late for dinner as everywhere was closed but Jo had some bread and homous which we tucked into before a nice sleep. We woke the next day to a pretty nice view. We headed down to brekky then packed up ready to explore the country. Our first nights accommodation was ok but I couldn't stand up fully in our room but it did feel pretty Swiss. We walked across the road to take some photos across the lake and begin the start of stunning views wherever we went that day. Then we piled into our chariot and headed up the road, still not feeling overly comfortable. The day was a little overcast but not really cold. In fact when we stopped at Lucerne we were in t-shirts. This was to be our first stop of the day and the first of many pretty town's and villages. We wandered through the town taking plenty of photos then stopped at a bakery to grab some snacks. We continued the driving with every bend leaving us amazed by what we were seeing. The beauty of the country is just impossible to convey as it is just one continuous postcard. We stopped at a little town on the way to eat our lunch by the lake before continuing on to our home for the next 5 days, Grindlewald. The town is an alpine village nestled in a valley surrounded by massive mountains. Once again a spectacular place to experience. We made our way to the chalet and checked in. Its a nice place with the most amazing views from a place we have ever stayed, probably hard to top ever. We dumped our gear then headed into town to get supplies for a few days and wander the town. We headed home to roast a chicken and consume a lot of drinks as the rain poured down outside. We really felt like we were in a fairy tale. Can't wait to go exploring tomorrow. The way these drinks are going down I'm guessing it won't be an early start.
