Driving over the Alps at 7,000 feet

DAY: 330 CITY:62 Country:19
THE SWISS ALPS


Here's a video Debbie made while we were driving over the Alps at 7,000 ft with no guard rails. She was FREAKED, it's cute to watch and the scenery is awesome. We went to Interlaken, a region in CH that sits between two lakes. Ahh, CH is the EU code for Switzerland CH=Confederation Helvitica. Yea, they have their own typeface. The Interlaken region is amazingly beautiful, rugged, and clean. Tall mountains sheer down to a beatuful lake and there are cows everywhere; really pretty, well-groomed, cared for cows with giant bells. After topping the mountain we drove on towards Lugano, a Swiss Italian border town with another lake. The video is the drive between the two, and I just love Deb's reaction to it all.



Today's word of the day is: KAISER WETTER.
We've had amazing weather and some friendly locals explained that we are having Kaiser Wetter - "weather for a king" Ya, Das s kaiser wetter!

It made me want to ride a BMW motorcycle through the Alps! Thanks for posting it. And aren't you getting more handsome by the day?
