Interlaken, the place to be!

SOOOOOO, we are finally sitting down in front of a computer. Been a long time since we updated and for that we are truly sorry. However we do have a reason, the last couple of days have been hectic and thrilling! Interlaken is what all what all adrenelinseekers have wet dreams about. At our summer camp-like hostel, Balmers Herberge (filled with Americans, Canadians and a couple of Aussies) one can sign up for anything from sky diving to river rafting.

So far we've indulged ourselves in the "black eagle" high tree rope course, the hardest white water rafting and some hardcore hiking in the alps. We have also been signed up for canyoning but for the last couple of day the full day course has been closed due to poor weather conditions which makes the rivers too harsh and thus prolongs our stay here. We ain't gonna leave until we have us some canyoning!

We also started out longboarding a whole lot around town and some of the surrounding hills. It was all good until we started talking to some locals who kindly let us know that if your caught longboarding on Swiss roads you receive a 1000 sfr (500 €) fine. OUCH. So after that we've only used our newly painted rides for beer runs and grocery shopping.

Next up on the itinerary is Munich, and later Berlin. Our time is slowly running out so we don't know if we'll make it to Belgium like we promised David *sadface*

Be sure to check back in for some nice pics!
