A rather sedate day today nestled between yesterday's climb up the Schilthorn and tomorrows trip up to the highest accessible point in Europe.Our plan was to visit the town of Grindelwald situated on a branch line between Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken.Once again due to the mild weather there was not very much snow around,a problem that would be rectified the following day.
Grindelwald is situated near the bottom of Mount Eiger and also near the bottom of a mountain called First which up till then I thought was a company that ran a fleet of gas spewing buses in East Lothian.One of the first thing I noticed was the amount of cars running through this village meaning we had to start thinking before we crossed a road.It has a modern sportscentre with a new ice-rink to replace the one that was used to portray the christmas village in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.Yes I know an alterior motive for visiting this village.
|Maybe there's a Swiss info bureau in Tokyo|
|Hotel Kreuz again|
|Looking for a few tips|
|Mount Eiger with not even a glimpse of Clint Eastwood|
|Funny advert for a pizzeria|
|Another building used in O.H.M.S.S|
Once again it was a relaxing day finished of with a sumptuous repast,getting us primed for our journey tomorrow to the highest accessible point in Europe without the use of climbing gear.
