If You Get the Chance, Go to Switzerland

For anyone who enjoys fresh air, beautiful scenery, and good chocolate, I highly recommend traveling to Switzerland. As someone who loves the outdoors, going to Switzerland has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. This past weekend, I got to check that off my bucket list. My roommate and I traveled to Interlaken, Switzerland, where we got to experience some breathtaking views. The small city is snuggled in a valley between two lakes and surrounded by the Swiss Alps. With mountain ranges in every direction and dozens of paragliders constantly flying through the sky, Interlaken is the most impressive place I have ever seen. Unfortunately, I only had time to visit the city for a day, but there is a countless number of hikes, lookouts, and other outdoor activities to experience in Interlaken. When my roommate and I weren’t admiring the landscape, we sat at a park in the center of the city where all the paragliders land. The city is amazing and the view of the mountains is something I will never forget. Switzerland is so beautiful that the best way to describe my experience is through photographs. So please enjoy some of the photos my roommate and I took while in Interlaken.
