Switzerland 2017

Back to Switzerland. This time we brought Renu’s Mom and Dad to experience it. We brought them to Dubai a few years back – but that was fairly familiar to them. Europe would be a whole new experience.

To begin with, they left Delhi which just the prior was 102′. We went to Luzern first which was 47′ . So a big difference indeed. This along with the fact that they don’t do a large amount of walking and it was going to be a stretch for them. But to my surprise, they did very well. Both – with the weather and the large amount of walking involved.

To make amends – we ate at a lot of Indian restaurants to lessen the blow for them. =) We started in Luzern and ended in Bern. It was a great trip.

Enjoy the photographs:

This was pretty cool, it was a Glacier cave, Renu’s mom and dad didn’t enjoy it too much. =)

This was a funny moment… Renu’s mom had to touch the snow to ensure it was really snow. Her first time being around it – she thought maybe it was like a manmade powder or something. haha

We came across this park by chance. This is in the town of Cham. Never heard of it, but so glad we went there…

Lausanne

We have the good fortune of having friends in Lausanne, so they graciously booked lunch for us at the Olympic Museum. It was a very nice place and a cool experience.

We also got to meet their daughter Alice for the first time. She’s beautiful.

Lausanne in addition to being very close to France is also very hilly. This is the view from the top of the hill.

You can see France right across the water from Lausanne. Our friends Jeff and Carine brought us up to the vineyards which dot the hills around Lausanne and Renu got to try some wine.

Lauterbrunnen

The town of beautiful waterfalls…

And then… F-18s flew over and distracted me for like… the next 3 days. They were just up there sparring with each other and it was so cool to witness. They were high enough that you couldn’t hear them, but if there is a military jet in the air, i’ll spot it.

Trummelbach Falls, in the mountain itself. Going up to top, from the inside. Amazing natural waterfalls and narrow passages through the falls…

The rarest of animals to see in the woods! Called the WifesPurseHoldingSapien. Very lucky to spot this type… note the odd angle in which it is walking.

Here, we are in the revolving restaurant on Mt. Schilthorn. 10,000 ft. Which is fairly high, though Cusco last year was considerably higher.
