Monday was our last full day in Switzerland.  We drove south from Bern to Interlaken.  Interlaken is a town situated inbetween two lakes.  We stopped in Interlaken East and did a little shopping.  We bought some fun souvenirs there.  This is the oldest shop in Interlaken.  Another  BOM drop here with the owners:)  We enjoyed visiting with them and perusing their shop.  I found a muxic box along with a Switzerland beanie.  We also got some cute music boxes for our Liberty Landing neighbors.
Then we drove to Lauterbrunnen where we parked the car and hopped on a bus up to Trammel Falls.  Here is Rick ready to get on the tram INSIDE THE MOUNTAIN.  The tram takes us up through the cave to get to the falls.  We had a lot of stairs and walking to do to see the falls.  They were amazing though.  My pictures didn't really turn out so I can't post them:(  The falls were running slidelike through the crevice of the mountain.  That's the best way I know to explain them.  Awesome!  And really LOUD!!
This is the view at the top of the tram dropoff.
After the falls we took another bus further up and got to ride in a gondola.......actually two........ we got way up there.  The elevation was 5413 ft above sea level.  Then after a short train ride and another gondola we made it back down to our car.
After our adventure we headed back towards Zurich.  We stayed at the NH Hotel just five minutes from the airport.  We packed everything up (so happy that all of our souvenirs fit in our bags 'cause we were worried)  and got some rest.
The plane ride was very long.  We were chasing daylight the whole time!
Such a good feeling to be back home!
We have been very blessed to see and do so much on this trip. 
We've made memories that I'm sure will last a lifetime!!
