Welcome to Switzerland! I was a bit surprised that there wasn't much of border control. We didn't even have to stop or show our passports.
The blessed traffic......
We were stuck so long people got out of their cars and such.
Luckily we had the happiest baby in the world.
He loved getting out and seeing more than just the back of the car...
Here's our rental car almost at the top of one of the mountain passes we went over.
We decided to drive straight to Lauterbrunnen because we knew if we stopped at our Airbnb in Interlaken we would be too exhausted to go back out.
Between the flower boxes and darling little Swiss flags everywhere, I was in heaven.
Of course the highlight for me was the two runs I went on around Interlaken. I kept trying so hard NOT to take pictures.. but I just couldn't stop! LOOK at that water!!!!!
When I saw these swans I just kept thinking........ how in the world did they get this lucky.
Now this was the strangest thing to me. I saw palm trees EVERYWHERE in Interlaken. I just don't get it! How in the world do palm trees survive a Swiss winter????? These were stuck in the ground, BIG palm trees!
I found an awesome trail that ran along the river/lake. It was amazing!!!
After my run in Interlaken we went back to Lauterbrunnen. Sadly it was a pretty cloudy day so we couldn't see the biggest mountain peaks (the Eiger) but luckily we did see it the next day on our way out of town. But anyway, we decided to take a gondola ride up to Murren. A cute little town above Lauterbrunnen. (We could have taken the Gondola even higher, but we could see a live video feed from the top and knew it was completely cloud covered.)
The best part was the views of Lauterbrunnen from the gondola.
And of course a super happy baby in Murren.
We then headed back to Lauterbrunnen and wandered around the shops and went for a little hike along the river.
