So today we did not exactly do extreme sports...but we did have a lot of fun. We woke up to the sunrise...6am, and a dog barking. After breakfast we headed over to the train station to try and book our next trip to San Sebastian...unfortunately, the darn Bulls are running around Spain and there is no possible way to get there in such short notice (poor planning on our part). So after that big let down, we came back to the hostel and cancelled all our reservations for Spain :( Instead of going to Spain, we decided to go to Brussels and Amsterdam...substituting one country for two..not too bad we guess. After we booked our trip to the new destinations...we thought it would be a good idea to travel up the mountains around us. There were a few options...135 dollars/person...which would take us to the highest point in Europe, or 26 dollars/person to take us up half way...since we have not had our notice of travel updated for Switzerland and only had a certain amount of money so we could do some extreme activities tomorrow, we decided to take the cheap train. It was an incredible view from Murren (The place where we went to). We first took a train from the station up to Lauterbrunnen, where we caught a cable car up a few hundred meters, then took another train up to Murren. We have some awesome pictures of the mountains.
After a little time on the mountain we decided to come back down...we stopped off and got some swiss chocolate which did not sit well with Danny. Once we got down from the mountain (about 4400 meters) we grabbed some bread, cheese, and turkey from the COOP (grocery store) and headed back to the hostel for happy hour. The food here is really expensive (12 dollars for a hamburger!!!!) so we have not exactly been eating our fill...but it is not too bad because the beer is pretty cheap:) Happy hour ended at 7pm but picks back up at 9 for the beach party. Parents do not be scared...but tomorrow morning we will be paragliding!!! It is going to be so much fun!! Leigh is a little bit nervous...but she is going to stick it out!!
Matty: It was Bread!
B: Scotch is right around the corner...it will be nice!! We will drink some for you for sure!
Shelby (if you read this): Leigh misses you!
