Yep, we did end up i nthe beautiful Swiss Alps. Dijon (where we had thought to stay in the south of France) was less than what we expected. So...we bullet shot straight through to the center of the Swiss Alps where extreme sports and chocolate, knives, banks, and watches reign supreme. We stayed in a quaint but popular little town at yes, the Funny Farm hostel. So there, I completely opened myself up to all jokes, comments, remarks, cracks (too bad you don't have that feature on this blog :) ). It was fairly desolate at the time, which I have enjoyed as a great perk to fall travel. The people were friendly and helpful. After a morning walking through the town, we enjoyed a gorgeous train ride through the alps - even the overcast day that it was the alps were impressive.
