Europe Trip: Switzerland
October 16, 2014 by Claire (The Captive Reader)
The more time I spend in Switzerland, the more jealous I become of Heidi. And of the all the (non-fictional) Swiss who are lucky enough to live and play there. I spent a full week in the Berner Oberland region of Switzerland this summer, hiking every day and getting the absolute maximum value out of my regional transit pass, and there hasn’t been a day since I got back when I haven’t thought longing of it.
Since I can’t go back any time soon, I thought I’d relive my happy memories of the mountains by sharing some of my many photos. Enjoy!
Alpine cow! Solidly 50% of what attracts me to the Swiss Alps are the cows.

View of Grindelwald Valley from Kleine Scheidegg (random literary trivia: AA Milne proposed to his wife while on holiday in Grindelwald)
Walk from First to Grosse Scheidegg
Lauterbrunnen Valley from the valley floor
