Life Abroad: Interlaken — The Plan

November 12, 2008

By the next time I write, I’ll have hopefully accomplished the following tasks. Wish me luck!

So here goes. The plan is to stay in Interlaken, which isn’t too far from where my Great Grandma grew up. It’s kind of a jumping-off point for all sorts of tourism in the area, most of it of the adventure sports variety. We’re arriving on Friday around noon, and we plan to explore the city and around it on Friday. Saturday, we’ll probably head up to the alps – the weather is kinda iffy, but Jean and I want to do some hiking or go up in the train, gondola, whatever. Sunday, I plan on making my way farther east to Meiringen and Grund, then eventually to Unterstook, which is a small village. My Great Grandma grew up in the mountains nearby, and since I don’t know where exactly (and the family that has visited said it’s hard to get to), I probably won’t find the house. But I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will all work out and somehow we’ll find the house.

 

Also, I’m hoping for snow when we visit.

  1. Emmi, I received the photos of Grandma's house. They called the house "Pfingly". The bottom floor is white, probably a concrete material. The upper floor and attic are horizontal planks, reddish brown…with lots of windows and scalloped window boxes. There seems to be an attached wooden structure of some type. Wish you could have seen these before you left. Have a great adventure! Love, Mami

Servus! I’m Emily and you’ve found my little corner of the internet, where I write about travel, intentionally living with less stuff, and living as a German-American family in Munich, Germany.  Want to know more?
