Study Abroad – part 1

In Travel Stories on September 3, 2011 at 2:09 am


We stayed in Switzerland for the duration of the study abroad trip. We stayed in Interlaken which is a quiet little tourist town, surrounded by hight beautiful mountains. We stayed at the Sonnenhof Backpackers Villa where we were able to leave majority of our luggage each weekend when we visited neighboring countries.

Interlaken became home very quickly. On weekdays we often had one free day and had a class a class for two hours each day for the rest of the week. We went hiking to the Schynige Platte but it was cloudy with some thunder and lightning. We ended up not heading as steep as we wanted but we kept seeing this amazing glimpses of the mountains as the wind cleared up the clouds. It was absolutely beautiful. We took the cable car up and down the mountain. After our hike, we ate from a restaurant located at base of the hike. I had really great ice-cream. But first I accidentally ordered ice-cream that had cognac that was extremely bitter (first and only alcohol experience…. Yuck).
