European Travel Diary | Switzerland

Sep 23, 2015

Ohhh, Switzerland. Where do I begin with you? I was SO excited to go to Switzerland — it was definitely the peak of the trip for me, and being such, I purposely saved it for last on our schedule thinking that, after having already traveled for 12 days, the remaining 4-5 should be spent somewhere we both REALLY want to see so we are still enjoying ourselves, despite the fatigue of going nonstop. Well, the weather didn’t play in our favor — we had nearly 2 weeks of perfect, beautiful blue skies and then arrived in Switzerland to an impending forecast of nothing but rain. Our first two days were spent on beautiful Lake Lucerne and we were fortunate enough to escape any storms. We enjoyed strolling the old streets, eating way too much Swiss chocolate, and heading up the mountains as much as possible.

We then headed to Murren, a tiny, car free village in the Lauterbrunnen village atop the Swiss Alps. As our train slowly approached, the rain came on harder and harder. And since we were so high up, the clouds surrounded the village and we couldn’t see more than 25 feet in front of ourselves. So all those gorgeous mountain views we had been so anxiously awaiting were hidden behind dark fog. We hoped for clear skies each morning, but they never came. We made tried to make the best of our time by hiking (in ponchos!) as much as possible, but there was only so much to see with limited views. It was definitely a bummer at the end of such a great vacation, but we now just have a spot we hope to return in the future during a better time of year!

Europe is a country that will always have a piece of my heart and soul. The days that Rob and I have spent there are some of the best of my life and we hope to return sooner than later!
