Last week after the program had its field trip to Bern I went with some friends to Interlocken for the afternoon. We only had a few hours before our train left for Vienna, but wanted to go just to see the view. And it was worth it! The train ride there was stunning, and once we got there we got to see the sunset. I think we basically ran off the train and just started asking people where the best view was, or where to go. Somehow, with minimal German skills we made it to the best look out point--the top of a fancy hotel in a little cafe. So we stopped for some coffee and then with an hour left quickly went to see the view of the lake as well.

So. I ended up going quite a few places this past week! I'll upload the photos from our program's trip to Bern today and keep putting the rest from this weekend up later this week.

Today was so beautiful! We got out of class very early today and decided to go explore the Old Town and climb to the top of the cathedral there to see the view. It was amazing! Then afterward we found a cute little cafe for some warm drinks :) Here are some pictures from walking around & the cathedral.

Here are some pictures from walking around the tiny town I am staying in. I did not take these today...for the past two days the weather here has been grey and cold. Our French teacher tells us this unfavorable weather is called 'le stratus'--the overcast skies that hang over Geneva, kept here because of the mountains and lake. I can't wait until it gets clear again so I can see the mountains :)
