We took the train again yesterday to Bern, the capital of Switzerland. I must have lost my travel mojo because it took me about an hour to figure out how to get to the suburban hotel I'd booked. (Darn German!) The hotel is part of a mall/movie theater/water park/spa complex just on the edge of town. This was a concession to the fact that my …

The hotel was not in downtown Bern but about an 8 minute train ride away. It was really nice because we had two rooms that joined together. In Bern we took about a 50 to a 60 min walk.

We boarded our double-decker train without incident, filled in the date on our rail pass, and settled in for the ride to Bern. The views were not quite as spectacular as yesterday's train ride, but still pleasant.
