Our regular holiday interlude – 7

Back to Allan & Ron’s Switzerland visit for a few posts…

Started off cool but became sunny. We set off via Spiez and the Lotschberg base tunnel to Brig where we caught the Postbus over the Simplon Pass to Domodossola in Italy. We had a 45 minutes break before catching direct train back to Spiez through the original Lotschberg summit tunnel. When we exited the tunnel at Kandersteg it was raining but this stopped before we got back to Spiez. Back in Lauterbrunnen the roads are wet but the sun is shining again.
