ah....switzerland. expensive, yummy chocolate, and LOVELY. i entered interlaken saying, "i won't do any adventure sports...i'm too scared." i planned on kayaking, hiking, chilling out. on my first day, i found myself egged on by suzy, calling a hanggliding place. i went hanggliding, went to the top of jungfraujoch for amazing views (see my article on bootsnall), ran around the beautiful lake brienz, watched paragliders and hanggliders come in, hang out with fellow backpackers. the highlight of course was hanggliding--you are lying flat at your stomach looking at one of the most beautiful places--my mouth was literally open almost the entire time. it was among the best 15 minutes of my life.
