The twelfth day was basically only for traveling and changing trains. Or… more or less, because that was the plan. But, of course, with me and my best friends, Lina and Žvilė, something had to go wrong. But nothing new here. 😀
From Ljubljana, Slovenia, we took the train to Opicina, Italy. Then we boarded another train, which was too crowded. After a few stops, we got off the train, and that’s when our plan started falling apart. However, we managed to catch another train to Venice and from there to Milan. In Milan, it was challenging to find the best train schedule because we didn’t anticipate that everyone would book the seats. But, of course, we were wrong. So, for next time, we made a silent promise to ourselves that we would do everything on time. I wonder if that will be the case next time… 😀
Well, either way, we resumed our trip from Milan to Zurich, Switzerland, then from Zurich to Bern, and finally from Bern to Interlaken Ost by train. Wow! So many stops and trains! But it was fun to try out so many different trains and look out the window at the changing scenery.
Then, from Interlaken Ost, we took a bus to Grindelwald, Switzerland. When we were seated on the bus from Interlaken Ost to Grindelwald, it was already dark outside. At one point, we thought we wouldn’t make it to the hostel because the bus’s doors were broken. However, after some attempts and help from other bus drivers, the doors were fixed. We actually thought they wouldn’t fix the doors and would tell us to leave the bus. Phew, thank God that was not the case, and we managed to reach our hostel.
Yes, we returned to Grindelwald for just one day. What can I say? We fell in love with Switzerland, and we already have plans to come back in the future! 😊
A few quick photos to sum up our day.
The weather was damp, and as we walked to the Glacier Canyon, we once again gazed at the mountains, which seemed to be enveloped in clouds or surrounded by cotton candy. While Lina and I explored the Glacier Canyon, Živilė went to do a rope jump. While she was waiting in line for her jump, Lina and I walked through the canyon. Just a few moments before we were about to return, we realized it was almost time for Živilė to jump, so I snapped a couple of photos.
At the end of the day, as we sat, ate, planned, and discussed where to go next, a cat joined us. He lives at the hostel and has small entrances made just for him. Isn’t he cute? 😊
