The countdown to my weekend away in Switzerland has well and truly begun. I am so excited to be escaping if only for a long weekend.
As planning for this trip has been a bit of a rush and very much unexpected I haven’t been able to plan as meticulously as I’d like! I’ve been led to believe that this is a good thing though and I’d like to keep up my new-found spontaneity as long as my sanity allows…
After having an absolute nightmare trying to book train travel (as followers of my Twitter account are very much aware…) I have finally managed to secure seats on a train to Grindelwald.
I almost gave up but with scenery like this I had to persevere. I mean, come on now how pretty is this?!
As with everything in Switzerland, train travel is super expensive. A return 2.5 hour journey from Basel to Grindelwald is £59- more expensive than our flights and that’s with a SuperSaver Ticket!
But I don’t think it would be right to leave Switzerland without sampling some of its fresh mountain air.
We will be in Grindelwald for a night and then head back to Basel for the day on Sunday. With our budget blown already, it’s going to be a bit of a basic trip but hopefully the Swiss scenery will be priceless!
