There’s not much I can tell you about the Alps that will translate better than the pictures. As an old friend would say, a thousand to one is a miserable exchange rate. Let’s just say that, despite it taking nearly an entire day of travel (train from Lucerne to Interlaken, another train from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen, an aerial cablecar to Grütschalp, and yet another train from Grütschalp to Mürren), it was all worth it. Sometimes, the process of getting there is just as extraordinary as the destination.

I’d never seen water that color before. The lakes were a clear, vibrant turquoise that got lighter and lighter in color the higher up we climbed.
