Jugfrau Adventure: Day 1
Summer break 2019 is coming but we have yet to finalize our vacation plan... initial plan was to visit either German or Italy. However, as we still can't use our personal car due to registration issue, we decided to focus on exploring Switzerland. There are so many places we have not explored yet here. One of the place is Interlaken, Off course, we have been before, but we really haven't explore it extensively. There are so many attractions surrounding Interlaken and yet we only visited some places and limit ourselves with travelling with car.
This time, we decided to spend four days in Interlaken and the surrounding Jungfrau region. Instead of driving around this region, we decided to take the train. You can refer to this website for info on the travel pass within Jungfau region.( https://jungfrauregion.swiss/en/summer/ ). You can buy either 3-day, 5-day and 8-day pass , and have access to most type of train; local train, mountain train, bus etc. However, for private cable car and train operators such as First, Pfingstedd or the Jungfraubahn are covered. As for Jungraubahn, you buy special extension ride via the website at discounted price. Also, you can have special discount on selected cable cars and trains using the camping cards/hotel cards provided by your hotels/camping areas.

On our first day here, we just explore Unterseen and Interlaken as we arrived a bit late from Geneve. What amazed us here is the color of the water at Thunersee and the river Arve that surrounding Interlaken town. It was mesmerizing and beautiful in its own way due to the glacier melt. Whitish as milk and bluish at the same time... when we touched the water, it felt a little bit oily due to its highly mineral content.
