Basel

Our last day in Swizerland was in Basel. We took the train from Interlaken in the morning and dropped our bags at the Hotel (Hotel Euler) and went looking around town. Our first stop was at a cafe in the park, where we spent the last of our swiss franks(*). We were 10 rappen short, but we told the lady at the cafe how we were leaving Switzerland that day and were getting rid of our money and she was very nice and let us off.

Interlaken Days 3 and Thun

Our third day in Interlaken was pretty wet, it rained most of the day. We spent the day reading in cafes and walking along the streets.

Interlaken Days 1 and 2

We arrived in Interlaken from Chur looking forward to being in the mountains again. The weather forecast for the next few days was looking a little bleak, but it was clear on the day we arrived so we made arrangements to go straight up to Schilthorn and got to Piz Gloria.

Zermatt - Chur

Today was the sad trip leaving Zermatt, we could easily have stayed for a few more days. However the Glacier Express was a good trip through the hills of Switzerland and had some great views. There aren't many photos from the train ride as it is difficult to get a photo without glare on the train windows getting in the way.

Zermatt Day 2

Day 2 in Zermatt was forecast to be cloudy and snowy, so we planned on doing some walks around the low lying areas. The forecast was completely wrong, and it was a beautiful clear (cloudless) day. We were kicking ourselves for not getting a 3 day lift pass, but we still got some amazing views. We spent the morning walking up to Z'Mutt and taking photographs of the Matterhorn. It was still pretty cold, only a few degrees, especially with the wind, but it was nice to be out in the sun walking through the hills.
