The picture is my hiking buddy Tyler and one of the many Swiss mountain cows that have a knack of getting in the way when it comes to shooting pictures! At least you can hear them coming. The hills are alive with sound of cow bells!
I am in a small town called Interlaken in the Bernese Alps. I have found a really friendly place to stay with free wireless Internet which is cool. It is a good base for ventures up the mountains and as I write this the mighty north face of the Eiger is looming through the window.
Cable cars, mountain railways, gondolas and ski lifts get you where you need to be. Tomorrow I am heading up to the highest railway station in Europe called Jungfraujoch (3500m or 11,500 feet above sea level) which should be cool in more ways than one!
I am sticking around Interlaken for three more days before I head off for a bit of glaciated valley action. I am then heading south to the famous Matterhorn region. Boy I love the mountains!
On a seperate issue I am already into record earnings this month and I might break through the £2K barrier if I am lucky which is just as well taking into account the costs here!
