Group 1 Update:
Today we hiked up to Gurten Kulm for about 1 hour, Then we took a train to come to Interlaken. We visited Coop supermarket to buy our breakfast for tomorrow and after that we went to Harder Kulm by the mountain train. From there, we could look down and see the whole of Interlaken city with the beautiful mountains. We had dinner at the Harder Kulm restaurant; we had cheese fondue, beef and pork steak and spaghetti.

Group 2 Update:
So today our initial plan to go canyoning was canceled due to weather conditions the nights before. Instead however, we went to a high ropes course and enjoyed climbing there. We also got a considerable refund from the company which we immediately used to have make our own BBQ, as the high ropes course offered a communal BBQ. we also celebrated Haena's 18th birthday with some surprise cake! (Happy birthday Haena!)
After a long day of climbing we decided to take the bus home which offered a lovely view of paragliders landing beside us. Now we have gone back to our hostel eager to eat and rest. Tomorrow we will be hiking up to the Lobhornhütte where we are unsure as to how much connectivity we will have meaning you may not get another update from us until we are in Bern :) been a great trip so far and our moral is high.

Group 3 Update :
Today we endured a hike from the quaint mountain town of St-George to the slightly larger town of Azier. Fortunately, our directions were clear, and only once did we miss our intended path. The paths were bordered by great pines and cattle grazed off in the distance; it was a quintessentially Swiss experience.
The remainder of our day, after catching a train to Geneva, was spent recovering from the hike. Our legs sore and minds tired, we simply couldn't do much more. Instead, we relaxed within our room, enjoying each other's company, looking forward to tomorrow's activities.
