We take the GoldenPass panoramic train from Lauterbrunnen through to Montreux, and visit the amazing European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. After watching this video Amanda reminded me that there was also some interesting graffiti in Geneva, but I remember it being part of an art installation and therefore temporary. Even if it wasn’t, unless you are specifically going there to visit CERN I can’t recommend Geneva as an interesting place to visit. That’s something we both agree on.
We go to a Swiss national dress festival in Männlichen, take in the views from Schynige Platte and Luke checks out the incredible deluge of Trümmelbach Falls.
We attend a “Folklore Night” at a campground in Lauterbrunnen, and then the next day we take a cable car up Schilthorn mountain to take a look at “Bond World” (Schilthorn is where they filmed “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”) and have lunch at a revolving restaurant.
Venturing farther outside Interlaken and around Lake Thun, we visit both Thun and Oberhofen (which is so small we didn’t actually take any footage of it except the castle, just as we were leaving!).
We take in some of the sights just outside Interlaken. First a bus up to Beatenberg, then a stop-off at the Saint Beatus caves, and finally a journey to the top of one of the higher peaks in the area: the Neiderhorn.
Our first stop in Switzerland is the town of Interlaken, and I’m not gonna leave you in suspense – we bloody love it. Pretty much got everything you could want and then some. We check out the scenery and have a few drinks while watching the paragliders land in the central park. Wonderful! Already looking forward to going back one day. 🙂
We visit Sorrento’s oddly neglected lemon grove and bemoan the weather.
Also, a little behind-the-scenes footage showing the dedication that goes in to getting you the best* shots possible!
* the best that I can be bothered to get
In this episode we take in the sights of the Amalfi Coast. First we stop in Amalfi to check out the medieval Roman Catholic cathedral in the Piazza del Duomo, and then head up to Ravello, a resort town set 365 meters above the Tyrrhenian Sea. Stunning views all across the board!
Being the pizza lover that he is, Luke explores some of the most renowned spots in Naples to buy a slice of the finest Neapolitan Margherita, and gets down to eating. After watching this video you will know where to go (and also maybe where not to go!).
For a more detailed description of every pizza Luke tried while in Naples, head to this entry of the blog.
The Harrogate Autumn Show is something Amanda has been looking forward to attending ever since she found out about it. Will it live up to her very high expectations?
