We decided to hang around our campsite for an extra day so that we could enjoy Swiss national day.

We started off in Riggenberg, a small village that the campsite was located in. There was a small village fayre there with all kinds of different things. Luckily for us, the busses were still running, which saved us a walk uphill!

After we were done there, we headed into Interlaken. There was a full day of activities, as well as the usual paragliders landing in the centre. The parades through the town were fun, although nothing compares to the fireworks – not only was it one of the best fireworks shows we have ever seen, having them in the valley of the mountains made the noise phenomenal!
