A real candidate for the most spectacular scenic day of our trip, and that's saying something. It didn't come cheap, but it was well worth it. Today, we saw what Switzerland has to offer. 7 years ago, I ascended Mount Pilatus, on the worlds steepest railway. It was a pretty awesome experience, but paled in comparison to the magnificence of the awkwardly named Mount Titlis (and yes, that is how you pronounce it). For todays experience, we booked a full day tour with Viator. The tour ...

The second cable car pretty much takes you from one peak to another one over a plummeting crevice. Inside the car I look at the barely visible little cable stretching out over nowhere to a grey snowy ...
... It was really good, better than the last nights version, although that was pretty good also. Went for a quick drink after dinner before heading back to my room, packing my bag, yelling at the noisy people having sex in the room next to me (yes, everywhere I go I get to listen to people rooting in rooms next to me.
