They should SAY that it’s at the TOP of the friggin mountain!
So we left tonight at around 7:30 pm and drove to Interlaken, Switzerland. The drive was really nice. No traffic, we already had the road tax sticker so they just waved us through the border, and the GPS got us easily through Zurich (sometimes a tricky area). Then we got to the Thunsee, one of the most beautiful lakes on the planet, and we were excited because we were so close. We stopped for a quick potty break for Ethan and the GPS said we only had 16km to go. Then she lost her mind and said 26km. Then she upped our destination time to like 30 more minutes. Then we started winding around the mountain. And we drove. And we drove. And we drove. When we ran out of road at the top of the mountain we were pretty stressed. Now let me interject here. This was not driving on straight flat roads. This was winding, steep, treacherous mountain roads. STRESSFUL! At the top of the mountain we stopped because we didn’t know the name of our hotel and we wanted to call or something because we ran out of road! Turned out to be a hotel we had PASSED several bends down the mountain. So we finally made our way down and to our room.
