Today’s plan was to visit a place called Grindelwald which was 2.5 hour trip from Zurich however everyone was going to Mt Jungfrau one of the largest peaks in Switzerland. So I decide to change the trip and go there instead and a good idea that was. We made a small stop in a little place called Interlaken before headed to the station to catch the train. The views of the mountains all ready were break-taking and this in on the ground just imagine what it will be like up at the top. After we got the train, we had to make a stop to catch a cog wheel train to get to the top. The train stopped 3 times on the way up so we could get out and look out of the side of the mountain which there was some cool views plus every stop we made you could tell the temperature change. As it got colder and colder the higher we got when we arrived at the top, kid our guide showed us around the mountain. I made some nice friends Amy from Canada , a couple from Stockport which is in Manchester and a couple from London .I spent all my time exploring the mountain with Amy we looked around the ice palace which was all made of ice including the floor. We also explored the peak and outside in the snow where we rented plastic board to go on the snow with which was a lot of fun. But the climb back up was hard work. After we finished there we decided to go for food and watched a film about the mountain in a small cinema. Before setting off back to Zurich where me any spend the whole time talking about everything and taking loads of photos and we arranged to meet up on Thursday night.
