Based on my Itinerary, I have a few Questions?
I know I would ideally want to spend at least two weeks, but given the time constraint, is this itinerary good for a couple going on a honeymoon ?
2. Have I missed something that is worth watching/doing ?
3. If you look at the itinerary I am staying at Interlaken for 3 days. Can I visit another place and keep Interlaken for 2 days instead of 3 Days? if yes please suggest us some places. I just realised that I haven't put Glacier express in my Itinerary. Can I go to St. Mortiz for that extra day that I take out from Interlaken?
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
