Friday Flashback: Winter in Switzerland

My week in Switzerland wasn't cheap, however I managed to save some money by couchsurfing with a friend in Bern, and another person in Geneva.  In Interlaken, I stayed at one of Europe's most popular hostels, Balmer's, but with snow on the ground, and a chill in the air, the guests were few and the atmosphere was non-existent.

Train rides through snow-covered valleys, and plenty of Swiss chocolate made the journey worthwhile.  Hopefully I'll have the opportunity to return when it's a little warmer.

Unbelievable photo! I stayed at Funny Farm when I was in Interlaken in 2005 and absolutely loved it. I really need to make it back there sometime for round 2.
