Bear away from Geneva to the City of Bears: Bern



Taking advantage of the national holiday,
Steven took a day off on Friday to make it a 4 day week-end.

What's our plan?
We took an excursion to Bern, the Swiss capital.




After a short train ride of 1 hour and 40 minutes,
we were no longer in Geneva, but in Bern.
The name is allegedly derived from the word "bear" in German.

From the station, we headed toward the Bear Park.
On the way, there's a lot of sights to see.

Such as,

House of Parliament

Also something non-political,

Zytglogge a.k.a Clock Tower

and the fairytale-like fountains that are everywhere in town

Each is different from others and unique.
Many utilizes bears as they are the city mascot.

Talking about bears, of course, the highlight of this trip.

Mother bear and baby bears in the Bear Park.
The park is relatively newly constructed on a river bank.

The baby bears were incredible adorable.
We could've spent a long time watching them play.

Even Truffle seemed curious004.gif
I bet he wanted to go join them and play.

The ambience of the city was so charmingly medieval,
with all these monuments and ancient buildings.

Even though it's less than 2 hours away from Geneva,
we definitely left as if we were on vacation in another country.
This "same country, different language" concept that is
wide-spread in Switzerland is still hard to grasp for us.
Yet, the locals were nice and cooperative, even in English or French,
we didn't struggle to communicate with them.

All and all, it was a wonderful field trip006.gif
We can't wait to explore other Swiss German cities in the future!
