Change can be rewarding
When traveling in Switzerland with my family when I was growing up, we always took public transportation. So when I took friends over there in the autumn of 2010 for a tour, for which they wanted to rent a car with me as the driver, I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't show them "true" Swiss culture and the efficiency of the Swiss system. However, I quickly enjoyed the convenience and flexibility of a car - being able to go places and have vantage points for views we'd seen only by train, boat, or bus. This particular day, we drove to Thun for some shopping and this clear panoramic view of the most famous of the Bernese Alps was in full glory on the return trip. We had to turn around on the autobahn in order to go back to a rest stop so we could take a photo of this glorious spectacle. Now we need a word with the local utility to get rid of those power lines....
