Interlaken, Switzerland

 

When I began to consider living abroad I had a long list of places I wanted to go, BUT Interlaken was honestly not on the list. I didn't seriously consider Switzerland until I saw pictures and heard of all the outdoor activities to do. Plus, I kept thinking about how perfect the weather in Florence is and comparing it to the harsh cold back in Minne, and was really unsure whether I wanted to put all of my heavy layers back on for Switzerland.

In the end, I made it there and have zero regrets. I genuinely loved the time I spent there, and while I will probably never go back, I encourage everyone to go. ...even if you're like me and don't participate in winter sports, I promise you can still find things to do! (:

video

Here's a short and sweet video I made from the trip! It's basically the same as the pictures, but in motion (obviously). I am far from a professional, but I enjoy making videos to look back on so don't judge my editing skills. :p 


I cannot believe how much I loved spending a weekend in Interlaken. Putting this post together was so fun and always enjoy reminiscing in the mems. Hope you liked this post and be ready for more to come!
