We decided to take the drive to Bern, about an hour and a half away. Bern is so beautiful. The city center sits inside the u-shape of the Aare river, and there are now 18 bridges that cross the river. Bern is listed in the top 10 cities for the best quality of life, and has a similar population to that of Boise, but only if you included the surrounding municipalities. The city itself has only 138,000 people.
We drove around for a bit, and then found a place to park and ate a lite pre-packed lunch in the car. We didn't eat much because I was determined to eat fondue that day, and if we found a fondue restaurant in an hour or two, I wanted to have an appetite by golly. Richard joked that Switzerland was leaving a lot of money on the table by making fondue so elusive...
With some help from some friendly Swiss citizens, we did at last find a fondue restaurant.
Now that I've gotten that out of the way; the fondue was amazing. It was so good. It was a perfect texture and consistency and the cheesy flavor was a party for my tongue. We loved it.
And Simon had schnitzel and fries. Poor kid. But he didn't care.
