I took Isabelle and Anja’s suggestion to travel 20 minutes by train to the village of Thun, and there take a scenic boat ride from Thun to the village of Spiez. The boat goes to the far end of Thun Lake where Thunersee and Brenzersee are divided by just a small strip of land (the tourist village of Interlaken and a main staging area to get up into the Alps), but as my hosts recommended, the shorter trip was just perfect for one day. This little voyage got my tired self closer to the Alps, and the very fresh air was reviving after yesterday’s adventures. What a gorgeous part of the world!!
