Page 7 of 12: Schynige Platte and Goodbye to Lauterbrunnen 8/29/08

Our last full day in Lauterbrunnen we took the train to Schynige Platte. We really enjoyed the very slow, old train up the mountain and the different views of the Jungrau region. We hiked through the Alpine garden at Schynige Platte and then ate lunch at the restaurant.

We had eaten lunch outside every day we were in the Jungfrau region except the day at the Jungfraujoch and it was wonderful to see all the different views of the region. The food had all been fairly similar - lots of sausage, roesti, cheese dishes and salads. We had spent around 50 CHF every day for lunch. But by eating breakfast and dinner at our apartment, I felt we had done well with money. Most of our money had been spent on riding trains and gondolas, but it had been worth every penny (CHF).

In the late afternoon we did laundry at The Booking Office, which was a 30 second walk from our apartment. We sat outside, me drinking wine and Dennis drinking tea while our clothes washed. We ate dinner at the Hotel Jungfrau and Dennis insisted we try fondue. He liked it - I didn't. But it seemed right to eat it at least once while in Switzerland.

The next morning we were off on the train to Luzern. The train ride was lovely in some of the areas between Interlaken and Luzern. But we were very sad to be leaving our little "home" in Lauterbrunnen - and especially the view from the balcony that we had enjoyed for a week.
