Interlaken

I slept in this morning and then set out on an adventure.  I had heard of walking trails, so I sent to look for those.  I ended up finding them, and it was rather creepy!  It was still pretty early in the morning, overcast sky and rather dark.  I was the only one out there in this wooded area, and I'm sure anything could have jumped out at me (person or otherwise) at any moment.  I fearlessly pressed on, following the river through the woods.  I ended up at (presumably) one of the lakes Interlaken is named for.  It was very serene; the water was perfectly still and there really was no noise at all.

I continued down the path way away from the city and eventually hit a town.  From there I followed the signs on the main road back to Interlaken (it was not far).  Even so, I didn't kill quite enough time and I found myself a little bored wandering the streets.  It's a great town for extreme (or even not so extreme) sports, but other than that there wasn't a whole lot to do.  I went back to the chocolatier and ate dinner there, so I could use my coupon.  Finally, I went to the train station and caught an overnight train to Florence.  I wish I could have spent more time in Switzerland, and I hope to some day.
