Finally I am continuing my travel series, this is the second to last blog post that will be detailing my trip, but since the summer is coming up I might do a few advice type posts relating to travelling that I wish I had known.
Anyway onto my time in Switzerland! We arrived late afternoon and as soon as I stepped off the coach my breath was taken away, I have never been to such a beautiful place. The coolness of the air was so inviting and seeing the greenery was amazing, something I had definitely missed whilst visiting all the cities.
After some dinner, a group of us wanted to explore and take advantage of the fresh air whilst we could, it was quite an eventful walk, one of the guys thought it would be good to jump out on a few of us from behind some trees, I legged it back down a hill because I was so scared, much to the amusement of some others who watched the whole thing play out. It was already getting dark when we set out so after looking at some amazing waterfalls and admiring the night sky we headed back to get a good nights sleep, knowing the next day was going to be epic!
We had to be up pretty early the next day because we were going to be going up Jungfrau Mountain!! I was beyond excited for this part of the trip, we got a train up to the peak, it didn’t take that long to get up there and the whole way is full of amazing scenery so it wasn’t a dull journey at all.
Once we reached the top we went outside pretty much right away and I had one of the best experiences of my life… getting semi naked at the top of a mountain!
It was funny because there were obviously loads of other tourists around and many of the older men were very amused at what we were doing, and when a guy friend got completely naked for a photo a few of them had their video cameras out, it was all harmless and pretty amusing. However the empowering feeling this gave me was incredible, I’m pretty self conscious of my body but this really gave me a confidence boost that I wasn’t expecting. We continued exploring the mountain, the worlds highest Lindt shop was inside the mountain too so of course we couldn’t leave without buying some chocolate.
We spent the whole day up Jungfrau and it was one of the best days I’ve ever had! Even when we came back down, the great day continued, our room was lucky enough to have a balcony so a few of us got some blankets and just chilled out there for most of the evening telling ghost stories and chatting about life.
I was so sad to leave Switzerland but will definitely return as soon as I can, it has given me such fond memories and my most favourite day and evening took place there.
I hope you guys are having a great week,
