That's just 30min though, it's expensive... come to think of it, Marco, my host in Milano, said about hitch hike.

"The distance is not so far and easy to hitch hike, so you can do it."

Ok, let's try a hitch hike!!
(This is a first time to try it in my life.)

If I couldn't, just ride on a train.

So I tried hitch hike under a rain, wearing a white rain wear.

I standed up at on the way to Interlaken, good view from driver, there was a enough space that car can park.

Just I thumb up and shiny smile~*

One car was stopped after just 1~2 min!! Yeahhhhh!!!

First hitch hike in my life was successed :D:D:D

Tom(41), swiss people, could speak English very well.
