Day trip-Giessbach Falls

On Saturday we took a day trip to the Berner Oberland (one hour from us), to meet up with Matthias' crazy (in a good way) Aunt Nelly. We drove to the beautiful village of Iseltwald and then took a boat across part of the lake of Brienz to the Giessbach falls. Afterwards, we walked all the way back to where our car was parked...along a lakeside trail. We walked for about 3 to 4 straight hours...not bad at all for a 4 year old! This region is so insanely beautiful, it's easy to see why the tourists love it.

Tomorrow is the Swiss National Day (their 4th of July)...and everything is closed and everyone has the day off. We're going to Lauerz early in the morning to meet Matthias' family and go to a farmer's brunch (it's tradition to go to a farm and partake of various foods made with their products). Then a bit of playing at the lake and then a barbecue and fireworks. Should be great!
