The balcony view of the lake is fantastic! Small room; sink is behind screen in room. Small bathroom; tiny shower. This is an old building, and the air freshener drove Lois' allergies nuts! Glad we are here only 1 night. Breakfast has a great selection of tea, cereal, meat, cheese but not much else. Brienze is a beautful little town at the end of the lake, and we'd definitely come back here but would not stay at his hotel. From boat dock, it's about a half mile walk to hotel. (TIP: Walk up to sidewalk rather than along gravel lake path if you are pulling luggage)

Finally after about 40 minutes or so we arrived at the summit station which

... city. I wouldn't have enjoyed it anyways, not in my condition. So I went to buy the ingredients to make myself a proper dinner, for the 2nd time on my trip. Just as I got to the train station, it started to pour and hail. It was violent. I guess taking the gamble not to bring my rain jacket taught me a lesson. Eventually it calmed down so I went to the bank and got some prosciutto filled ravioli and cheap salami meat and a ...
... have a few days to explore this area. Perfect warm weather up here. Interesting sign up the top about thunderstorms advising to get inside, or crouch because of high lightening strike risk. Back down - I chose to avoid being upstairs in the open but Anne and Debbie were back up there loving it. As we came back down into the mist the cables disappeared into nothingness ... Not a nice feeling. Waiting in the village below Anne spots a kiwi fruit vine in ...
... roll in and past the town, which was kind of impressive - glad I wasn't still out in it though!
Finally, I got caught up on Doctor Who, as I'd missed two episodes due to being in Egypt. Great episodes, but sad to think that the season is almost over - only one more to go, so hopefully I can watch that while I'm in Rome!
