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)

... Here at this railway there is
clearly a good sense of humour in the air and the chap who is showing us around
comes out with many jokes etc. All around the works are joke posters and ghost
models etc but the best thing of all are the bathrooms to which he took great
pleasure in showing us all. The washbasins have all been fitted out with old
steam loco pipes and steam gauges which really do work. Turn on the tap and the
gauges show the fall in pressure. ...
We arrived in Geneva to a stinking hot 32 degree day, which was actually quite nice after the 18 degree San Seb weather. It was late in the afternoon so we wanted to get to our hotel as quickly as possible so we could have a quick look at Lake Geneva before dinner. After lugging our suitcases uphill for 20 minutes we were all dripping in sweat and I'm surprised they actually let us through the door. Quick shower, and off to explore. First impression of Switzerland was WOW. Lake ...
... Revolution. Its carved into a massive rock face, it is very detailed, showing the spear sticking out of the lions back, and the defeated emotion in the lions stature. It overlooks its own pond giving a very peaceful atmosphere, that is all very fitting.
The Church of St. Leodegar is the most important church in the city, its very large with its twin needle towers that are the last surviving remnants of the earlier structure. We didn't go inside, but had ...
... the missionaries there had headsets that we'd listen to, and one of them was speaking in them and translating the whole meeting into English. It was kind of neat!
After church, we went back to the condo in Lauterbrunnen, got regular day clothes on, and hopped in the van to go explore Grindelwald.
