Our Route:  Jennifer has family friends in Zurich.  We stayed with them for most of our time in Switzerland. It was nice to have a real home to relax in for a change! We did venture away from Zurich for one night, when we took a train south the the Interlaken area to see the Alps. We spent the night in the little town of Grindelwald, at the foot of the Eiger mountain, and did a little hiking before returning to Zurich the next day.
