Hopped on a tain to Bern in the morning. Snowed the whole train ride. It was a winter wonderland and reminded me so much of Alberta. I loved it. It was cold when I got off in Bern and it was still snowing. Walked to my hostel and dropped my stuff off. Went over to the bear pits where they have 2 bears you can watch all day. A guy was feeding them stuff. Throwing it into the pit and they'd catch it in their mouths. Really cool! It's free too.

Went on my own little walking tour of Bern. Saw the Cathedral, the parliment building (under massive refurbishment) and the old town. I did a bit of shopping and bought a couple of swiss army knives. I've seen lots of Swiss soldiers since I got into Switzerland. Good looking guys!!! Still snowing so I bought some groceries and went back to the hostel and had a nap, made dinner and went through my pictures. Off to Interlaken tomorrow! I'm so excited!!!
