However there is one massive difference and that is the weather. Back then
on the bikes every surrounding bit of this area was covered in thick snow and
many parts of the mountain were simply impossible to walk on but today there was
not a single drop of snow to be seen.
After about 40 or so minutes we arrive at the summit station of First!!
From this high mountain we can see across the Alps for mile upon mile and the
views are simply ...
... quietly taking it all in. I was little overexcited again and Ro was just loving being there, quite amazed that it was actually happening.
On arrival to First it was very clear that kids were going to need sunglasses to enjoy our time on the mountain. What better place to buy sunnies than on top of a Swiss mountain in a tourist shop. So 150 Swiss francs later (more than the cost of our tickets) the kids had sunnies and we were off for our walk to Lake Bachalpsee. Well the snow ...
If you ever end up in Switzerland and you can afford the 120 Swiss francs to take the rack railway from Kleine Scheidegg to the top of the Jungfraujoch, then make sure you do it....even if you do nothing else!! If you don't have the budget, do it anyway. It's worth getting in debt for!!
... I had ever seen. I've never seen an environment so full of life and rich in colour.
Maybe it was the panic or the extreme wonder I felt when looking at the Swiss Alps but I forget step 2 of the jumping process and my pilot had to wrench my hands from my straps and hold them out to my sides. When the free fall was coming to an end the pilot gave me the thumbs up to signal that he was releasing the parachute and all of a sudden it was like we stopped in the air. ...
... br> After a long day it was time for bed at 10pm only to be woken by some noisy fools who came in at 23h30. This noisy lot were in the room right above mine and as the building is constructed from wood every time they walked around their room the whole place creaked!! It sounded like the German army was marching up and down the room with the noise they were making!!
And that’s another day on our journey!! I just prey this wet weather disappears and we get some sunshine from now ...
