We head off at 6:20am and pull our suitcases through the snow to the Adliswil station for the first of four trains, getting us into Grindelwald about 10am. Hannah has made us a packed lunch (so nice) and we grab croissants and coffee for breakfast at Zurich HB and then proceed to be overwhelmed by how efficient, clean and just downright awesome the Swiss trains are.

... another year, and most of the trails were closed then.
Riding up this long long lift we commented on how this ride, although definitely not the most spectacular gondola ride in all of Europe, was absolutely one of the prettiest. You look down on small farms with old wooden houses and barns, piles of hay, Swiss cows (those are the taupe colored ones, although other colors can sometimes be seen), in one area parasailing people were ...
