Henry III turns 30
Another hot stinker and this time I don't get to retreat to a cool mountaintop.
I packed all my gear ready for departure then left it in the luggage room while I took a quick trip up to Grindelwald in the next valley. It's not much of a ride but it has an excellent view of the Eiger.
I then had lunch back at the hostel before setting off to Bern. I missed the turn for the lovely lakeside ride and ended up on the Autobarn. It was probably for the best as the temperature was rising and it was a very quick trip to Bern.
For the next few days I'm staying with my friend Sabine who we met when we were here in '06. We've kept in contact all these years and followed each other's highs and lows... and it was just so good to be back in her company again.
Sabine took me down to the river for a swim and it was the best dip in melted glacier I've had in ages.
