6 BERN was the 1st Swiss city I saw and I fell in love with it instantly. Its city center/old town rises from a crook in the River Aare surrounding it on three sides and sits up high like some ornemental thingy on a birthday cake. I spent hours just rambling around its streets people watching, food buying(my favorite travel activity BTW) and though it was July I kept trying to visualise this enchanting little place in the dead of winter, which is odd because I live in Florida largely because I detest snow. Bern was always doing that to me..changing my values. I spent long hours taking naps beside the rivere 100's of feet below the main thoroughfare in a world of my own. Swimming at whim in the river where there were long red pipes at intervals jutting 10-12 feet into the Aare to grab onto as the swift current took you for about a 4mph ride. Eating at the food counters at Migros. Feeding the bears marshmallows in the bear pit. Good memories all.
