Hi there, I know I promised my son’s Amsterdam travel post first but he is typing a little slow this time, haha!
So I thought I’d share some of our trip to Switzerland first (read the second Switzerland post by clicking HERE) and maybe a second post this week about Switzerland. We just returned on Saturday and I’m so so sore from hiking. There are muscles in my legs from walking downhill that I didn’t know even existed. Sore muscles at the bottom of your feet??? If you think about it, at the gym you always walk up the hill on a treadmill, not down. It’s quite difficult to walk down steep narrow hills where you pretty much have to watch every step you take. We walked for about 4 hours, yikes.
This is a photo heavy post because I just couldn’t stop taking photos. It was just so so pretty.
We took the following cable cars up to the Fürenalp Engelberg. The ride made us all week in the knees. I’m afraid of heights and proud of myself for not being a chicken and doing it anyway.
Look at this view! The photo was taken from inside the cable car with my cellphone:
When you get to the top the views are breathtaking all the way around!
We usually do a lot of city sightseeing so my kids really enjoyed just seeing the power and beauty of nature this time.
It’s fresh air, sun and the sound of cow bells and waterfalls. On our hike you just walk right through the hills with the cows who are friendly and adorable and all of them wear their bells so their owners can find them by sound should they get lost.
We walked down to the bottom of the mountain again. Looks kind of crazy from up here!
Had a wonderful lunch right in the grass:
The water is so fresh and cold, we actually drank it:
The photo of the path below is one of my favorites because I think it looks magical, don’t you think so?
After seeing all these photos, you can probably imagine why I have such sore legs, right? But it was well worth it.
