Interlaken, Switzerland

        Interlaken is an adventure destination in Switzerland that offers some unique outdoor fun opportunities. It is located between two big lakes, hence the name Inter meaning between and laken meaning lake. We booked a few extra days here to relax and slow down a bit. There is so much to do in Europe its harder than it sounds to slow down sometimes. We had five days here, which was perfect. Our place had a nice cold pool, and a slip-n-slide to death jump into the pool. There was plenty of lounging going on. Mixed with the laid back vibes we also took part in some fun adventures. One day we went for 6 hours of canyoning. The guides gear you up in a wet suit and a harness and send you down a freezing cold river that runs down a canyon of slick granite rocks. We started off with a 150 ft rappel into the canyon, and as Ang is very scared of heights it was quite entertaining. Then it’s all cliff-jumping, rockslides, and zip-lines all the way down the canyon. It was a hot day and we had a fun group. The next day I went for a sunset paraglide, which was incredible. Interlaken is very well known for this and all day you can see people flying all around the basin and landing in the field by the town square. Safe to say its one of the most fun things you can do. Our last day in Interlaken we went to a small lake that my brother had told us to go check out, it had a cliff jumps, and a giant rope swing. We made friends with the local kids who took us around to the rope swing. Listening to a bunch of small kids call each other various names in German was also highly entertaining. Adrenaline rush or all day no rush, this might be a place for you…
