Don't sit at home.
First of all: DON’T SLEEP (from half past twelve to half past one and then run your laptop until four in the morning, because it might happen that you can’t sleep until 5:30 and then it’s not worth it anymore to sleep because your appointment is at half past 6.)ONE HOUR THE DAY BEFOR THE TOUR. Freaking simple to memory, hard to execute. Otherwise you have to drink three cups of coffee AND sleep more than 3 hours in the train. It’s incriminating. (MORE INCRIMINATING is when your friend just forgot to show up at the arranged time, so you just randomly sit in his kitchen and you’re thinking „How The F*CK should I survive this day“ while your friend is thinking „Boah, that guy is ready for today!“ After half an hour you’re going to leave the house and then finally start the day.
BUT as you know, I’m a serious person, so I slept over 14 hours or something like that (jk). Also memory that you can’t return the SUPERSAVER TICKET. So don’t buy another DAY-TICKET to save 10 francs and think you can bring the other ticket back. You really can’t and you’re f*cked up with two tickets. SAD STORY BRO.
BUT LET’S BEGIN. We wanted to take a train and go anywhere in Switzerland. Me and my friend decided to take the train to Milano Centrale, because the weather was really good there. We left the train in Brig and that’s the first destination. Well, the view is great. If you leave the train station, you’ll see a really majestic mountain. Well, that’s almost everything, there is also a castle and a random school class which looks at you like „Why are you here man, here’s literally nothing“. I don’t know if anybody lives there, there are some houses and a restaurant, but we didn’t see a lot of people in the city, just tourists and a guy in a Batman costume. So, Brig is just a city to move further on for example to Fiesch or Zermatt etc.
After half an hour there (we bought something to eat and drink) we took the train to Zermatt. The ride was about one and a half hour, but it’s very beautiful. (I slept the whole ride) Don’t forget to take your sunglasses with you in the winter because of the albedo (the reflection of the sun from a white surface). I have to say this place disappointed me a little. A friend of mine says that it’s very beautiful there and well, it is beautiful, but everything was so expensive and although there are no cars, there are some little taxies, which are more annoying than the bigger cars. But my friend really like this city. You see the Matterhorn, the village is really lovely and you can visit really beautiful places (just please consider the prices. For one person round trip you pay 45 francs.) In the winter the place is perfect to ski or snowboard. So we didn’t do anything there except for walking around with no plan and just return back and that’s why it was so disappointing for me.
We took a train back to Brig, but we left the train in Randa. Why there? Because we wanted mother nature. And there was a little river and I really wanted to take some beautiful pics for you. In Randa there’s nothing and it’s not worth it to get out, I really recommend you to visit Träsch than Randa. We wanted to walk next to the river, but there was a avalanche danger we couldn’t go further.
LIFEHACK: You should not be on a beautiful location for twenty minutes, watching a YouTube tutorial how to pair your phone with your camera to control the camera with your phone. Do this at home or at least in the train. But NOT there. It’s not worth it. THANK
One hour later we got back to the train station and we left the train in Visp (We didn’t visit this city, so we move on..) and took a train to Lausanne. We drove another one and a half hour (1:38) and we finally got there. Lausanne is a beautiful city, I think. We didn’t really do sightseeing, but we walked down to the lake Geneva and it’s really beautiful there. At the end of the day you can see birds flying above the lake.
NOTE: Take the metro from Lausanne-gare to the end station down the city. It’s not worth it to walk, it took us more than fifteen minutes and it’s not special in any way. Go if you have a lot of time.
Yeah, that was our day. It wasn’t this kind of travel I first wanted to do, I really imagined it differently. But it was a nice day (although I almost died because I didn’t have enough sleep). Next time, I’m going to plan the next trip a little bit. I wanted to see the nature and today we mostly did sightseeing. And another note: It’s freaking cold in February, so take enough clothes with you or you’re freaking out. But the day ticket is worth it! It’s so nice to take any train and go out anywhere and then take the train again. But I’ll definitely do this again, so see you soon! ^^
NOTE: For days like this, you want me to do VLOGS? I used to make VLOGS and it’s quite a fun for me. Please vote here
Yesterday, my friends and I went to the laser tag. I think you know what it is, (at least from How I met Your Mother) but if you don’t, I’ll describe it to you
You’re in a room with other enemies. You’re in a team or alone (you can chose this before the game starts) and you wear a vest with light-emitting diodes and if an enemy (or friend) hits you with his gun (which shoots laser, but it’s not dangerous at all for your eyes) you lose points. You also have a gun and you can enemies as well. Depending in which Lasercity they have also ‚Bonus Materials‘. In Biel you have mines at which you can shoot at and when you hit them three times you get super powers like spy mode (you have the color of the enemy team) or you fire at automatic and things like that.
You’re in a dark room (but you can see things, it’s not very dangerous, but DON’T run, seriously, a friend broke someone’s nose yesterday because he bumped into him) and there are obstacles. There is also two platforms which are higher than the low-ground. A game is about 12 minutes and you’ll sweat a lot, no kidding.
What I want to say is, that it’s really funny, almost like Paintball, but it doesn’t hurt. You really should do that and there are so many laser-tags around the world, you shouldn’t be scared of it. But you have to be 8 years old (or older of course ;).
My rating is a 9.5/10
If you’re in a group, you should reserve a time (but there’s a chance that you have to wait longer as well, we played 14 minutes later than arranged.) Overall, very nice people there, quite fun and you should play two or three rounds, not more. If you don’t want to play another round, you can get your money back.
How to get there?
From Biel/Bienne train station, you can take the Bus Nr. 9 to Schule Linden and leave it at Brühlplatz. Then walk forward to the roundabout and go left to the bridge, then there’s a sign with LASER CITY.
Place: Mattenstrasse 165, Biel
