a morning in grindelwald, switzerland
I had decided that I would ride a cable car up to First to get a better view of the valley and the surrounding mountains. Super touristy, I know, but I had to take every chance I could to be in the mountains. I miss them dearly in Ohio! I arrived at the cable car station to find that it was closed so I decided to find a place to sit down and have breakfast. I found a little restaurant called Alte Post that was cute and cozy so I decided to give it a try. I ordered a salad and espresso for breakfast and just chilled. I enjoyed how quiet the restaurant was. It was Sunday after all and barely anyone was out. This probably added to why I liked Grindelwald so much!
Once I made it up to First, I couldn’t stop smiling! Just look at the view! Even though it was cloudy, I didn’t mind. I was just happy to be outside. Since I was up early, the cliff walk and terrace were not crowded. Such a huge bonus!
I had a small snack at the entrance of the gorge and then meandered back to the train station. I laughed a lot as I walked back because I was still in awe of the beauty of Grindelwald. I just could not believe that places like this exist, let alone that I get to see them. I reflected on my life and how lucky I felt (and still feel) and thanked my adventurous spirit for driving me to explore.
