On the second day at Interlaken, we went up to Grindelwald. It is a must visit place and was strongly recommended by our Eurocamp patron as well as our friend who had visit Swiss last November. But the difference was of course the weather and temperature. Since winter had prolonged this year, it's still gloomy and still covered by snow, just like in a 'Winter Wonderland'!
Let's check it out! ;)
That day the road wasn't busy so hubby just drove slow and steady so that we could savour the view peacefully. ;) Once we reached the entrance, hubby pulled over to the roadside to read the map and take pictures. It was freezing cold up there, so only hubby and I who got out the car. Zahin joined us later but only for a while. And Iris who was still unwell due to lactose tolerant stayed asleep in the car with lil Zafri.
from the lookout point, we could see the Swiss Village at the foot of Alps and cable cars ride up to the Alps mountain! And after that Zahin started begging us to take her riding on it too! Hoho..Since we had planned to ride a cable car at somewhere else so we promised to take her on the next day..:D
I heard there was a stylish and elegant town for shopaholics but since shopping was not in our main objective so we just passed it. :P
finally hubby found car-park at Grund near Maanlichenbahn (cable car station to Maanlichen at 2230m). There was a bridge across the river nearby the carpark that intrigued us. We wanted to across it but we had to be careful as the skiers who skied down the mountain were too fast while passing through the bridge!
Being at the foot of Alps while the Swiss wooden houses were scattered in the background were awesome!
The view was so breathtaking indeed. Alhamdulillah, the kids were also well-behaved with Zahin really enjoyed playing on the snow that she hardly enjoyed it in England, heheh while Zafri sleepily sat on his stroller whereas Iris's sleeping in a baby carrier carried by Babah..huhu poor my baby.
We managed to pose with snow mobile FOC! ;D
Lastly, we had a good time enjoying the view and watching the skiers at Grindelwald. It was a precious experience to remember in the future. But It could be so much funnier and merrier if only Iris was healthy that day. It was so quiet without her animated chit-chat and laugh. :(

Ok till then, Wassalam.
