Started the day in Geneva. Since we missed the Jet D'eau the day before because of the wind, we decided to go check it out before heading to the mountains. Luckily the wind had subsided and the jets were rising! The Jet shoots up 132 gallons of water 459 feet into the air at 125 mph.... Kind of spectacular but that's all it was.

After the Jets, we got on the train from Geneva to Bern, about a 2 hour train. From Bern, we hopped on a connector to Interlaken (about an hour) and from there Lauterbrunnen (about 20 min) and then finally to
Murren on the BLM (Bahn Lauterbrunnen Murren). The initial views of the mountains are just breathtaking. The pictures cannot do it justice. The granduer of it all, the vastness of it all... I just can't put it into words.

After we checked into Hotel Jungfrau (from the train station, just go up the hill, down the hill and then follow the flags). We wandered a little but around the town of Murren and then had dinner at our hotel. I had Raclette which is melted cheese and potatoes. Quite yummy!

After dinner we hung the lobby, met a Rick Steve's Guide named Thomas, who took a liking to the Henrys 😊

Both a type of cheese and a Swiss dish based on heating the cheese and scraping off (racler) the melted part.
