Sometimes the best things in life come unexpectedly. This is why I love travelling and not planning in too much detail into it. I would normally have a rough idea or two of what I want to do in a city, leaving room for surprises.
When we planned the trip to Interlaken, I did not know what we would do in the city itself apart from heading to Jungfraujoch early in the morning for the second day.
So in the afternoon, we decided to take the Thunersee Lake Cruise departing from Interlaken West. The journey itself was beautiful, cruising along beautiful mountains and cottages nestled along the slopes.
But what was waiting at the end of the journey was equally wonderful. I had never even heard of Thun before this. When we took the train from Bern to Interlaken, I only brushed it off as one of the train stations in the middle of nowhere. However, it was actually a pretty little town with population of about 42,000 people. There were hardly any international tourists there – it seemed much more widely popular with the locals.
