Trip Moments

Ivana Zhang   
Jungfrau, lend me a pair of wings | gliding, has also been a wish of his own, experience the feeling of flying, change the perspective to see the world. Fortunately, this wish was fortunate to be realized at Jungfrau. There are always new attempts in life, and the changes that these attempts bring us will surprise you. Deliberately made a video that can visually show the feeling of flying. Little Blue began to explain some gliding notes after the hotel received us. His tone made me very excited about what happened later. There are four tourists in the car, except for me and the baby, and another couple from Beijing. In addition, there are four coaches assigned to us. When choosing a coach, Xiao Lan first asked me which coach I want to choose. I saw him look forward to it, I was embarrassed to reject his little eyes, so he said without hesitation: "Choose you." He immediately said to me: "I am crazy, but, choose me, you are more crazy." I had some premonitions about what happened afterwards, but I would be so "thrilling". picked a playful guide and the result was broken. Looking at the lawn not far from the foot, asked Xiao Lan if he was going to land. As a result, Xiaolan told me: "No, action time!" Then I swung around 360 degrees, 270 degrees down to various directions, then I was really Axi, all kinds of weightless "roller coaster", Let me deeply understand how crazy it is to choose him. After landing, I felt that I finally returned to the land, and the whole person was relieved. This coach is so crazy that I am dizzy. After half an hour slowed down, I finally got over. Looking at it at the foot of the Jungfrau is another kind of feeling. End of hang gliding I wanted to go to Mount Had to see the Jungfrau panorama, but unfortunately the cable car was closed because of the Easter holiday. However, it is recommended here. Because there is a famous two lakes bridge on the Hud Mountain Peak, a viewing platform above the two lakes, overlooking the Brienzersee and Thun, the most important thing is that it can be far away. Viewing the three peaks of "love, hate and hatred", Eiger, Mt. Feng, Jungfrau, one at a time.
