After my week long hiatus to sunny Switzerland I’m back! First off a word about the Swiss transport system – WOW, everything runs on time, is amazingly clean and modern. You can literally set your watch by the trains/buses/trams which all have integrated timetables so you can usually step off one directly onto another. It puts all other transport systems I’ve ever used to shame!

Highlights of the trip included eating some rather tasty fondue and going up the amazing Jungfraujoch mountain as well as some nice walks round some small (and not so small) cities. If you’re looking for affordable accommodation in Switzerland I would have no hesitation recommending Pension Marthahus in Bern and Hotel Rugenpark in Interlaken, both of which provided clean and comfortable rooms as well as a decent breakfast (essential in my book)!

Here are a few of my favourite photos, you can find the rest in the gallery:

    Jennifer: I would imagine at this time of year that the weather should be fairly good. You probably will only need light clothing for the majority of the trip but I would definitely recommend a warm coat, gloves and sunglasses for the trip up the Jungfrau! Make sure you go up the mountain on a clear day otherwise it's a waster of time and money if you can't see the view!!

    I am traveling to Switzerland this week with my daughter. We are flying to Basel, then will take a train to Wengen. I am planning to go to jungfrau. What do you recommend as far as packing clothing. I don't want to bring too much, but I want to be sure we are warm enough.
