Our next stop on our Europe trip was Bern, Switzerland. I must admit that I didn't know that Bern is the capital of Switzerland! I thought it was Geneva or Zurich. Bern is a beautiful, beautiful city. We took the train, checked into our hotel in the afternoon, and were famished. We headed to a delicious cafe for lunch.
We then went walking to find the Bear Park that Ashley wanted to see. We crossed this gorgeous scene! The river is this dusty aquamarine color due to the calcium in the riverbed. Unfortunately, the bear park was closed due to renovations... so no bears for us.
We also found a gorgeous public park that was Rose Garden. The roses were in bloom and it was a spectacular sight. Such a difference from the cities of Madrid, Paris, and London. We all sat on the grass for the first time in weeks!
Here is Jon with the village of Bern in the background. Gorgeous.
This is the Main Street. It is clean, picture perfect, and colorful. There are fountains, flowers, a fun clock tower, flags, and electric trolleys.
And the next day, we were off to Italy!
