Location: Zurich - Brig, Switzerland

Map(in place of yesterday, we got back late)
Today we got up nice and early because we went to Brig. if you look on a map its way down the bottom. We caught the train from Zurich and got to Bern, the capital, in an hour, then changed trains there and then spent about 2.5hrs getting to brig. the ride though fom Bern to Glopenstein is magnificant. the valley is picture perfect and theres nothing much to be said its so beutiful. All the houses are the same and it looks like a wee model play set. From there you go through a massive tunnel and then through a series of avalanche shelters. once through them, well, you look down about 500m to the bottom of a clif and a panoramic view of the swiss alps. jaw-dropping stuff.
We managed o get on to Brig and it is also one of the awesomest places in the world. We were planing to go on to Zermatt (where the matterhorn is but we missed the connection).
