Good 'ol Dave B. or better known to us as Birdwald Ponypants!
Well this fellow typically gets lost in the crowd. A very distracted sort of guy. We almost have to keep an eye on him like we would a child, so that not to lose him. That's my preface. Keep it in mind.
We all have bucket-lists of some shape or form. Mine of course mostly have to do with travel experiences (as I'm sure that you could've already imagined), and Birdwald Ponypants also happens to have a travel bucket-list. On that list happened to be seeing the Matterhorn, and he didn't mean the ride at Disneyland! lol
Dave had also mentioned to me how he wanted to visit the Bernese Oberland and Jungfraujoch. There's a tongue twister for you! At first it took me forever to grasp that name!
The Jungfrau Region is a region located in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. It is named after the famous mountain Jungfrau, 4,158 metres (13,642 ft) above sea level.
Once I began doing my research, I realized just how beautiful Switzerland really was, I was 100% HOOKED!
Here is a sample of just one of the little stories that happened on this wonderful trip:
In the early summer of 2013, 4 of us (myself, Dave B, Dominic, and Cosette) took off on a European Adventure. It was to be the kids first trip over seas! How exciting!!!
I chose a road/rail trip to through Switzerland, Northern Italy, Germany, Liechtenstein, and a brief trip into Austria.
Early on during the trip we had stayed in the Jungfrau Region.

Staying in both Lauterbrunnen, and Wengen. Both abso-freakin-lutely beeeea-utiful!
Wengen (pronounced Ving-gen) quickly became one of Cosette's favorite places on earth, begging us to move there!
Well of course one of the mornings during our visit, the plan was to take a ride up to the famed James Bond location of Junfraujoch or the Top-of-Europe at 3,571m/11,782ft above sea level.
a journey to the Jungfraujoch). Dave was very excited to say the least, and upon our arrival at Kleine Scheidegg he was really putting on the pressure for us to get along to our connection; which I've got to say was a bit of a put off for me. I'm quite good at schedules and tend to be an on time type of gal, so please don't pressure me as to when I should do something! I clearly expressed my feelings to Mr Ponypants and continued on my way doing my own thing, taking pictures and exploring.
As the 3 of us took our seats, we looked out the window and still saw Birdwald being distracted and snapping pictures as we were calling out to him. Next thing we know it, the train started to pull away, and the kids and I stared wide eyed at Dave realizing that he missed the train!
And I had his ticket!
I made sure that the conductor was aware of the situation and eventually good 'ol Birdwald did manage to catch up with us!
I bet you can answer that one on your own!
