This is the fifth time we stayed at Interlaken. We immediately felt relaxed when we met our hosts, Elsie and Kevin. We usually stay at Interlaken as it is a natural hub to travel to other resorts without having to live out of suitcases; George is only a little way away with its Outeniqua Power train travelling through the Witfontein...
