Whenever your team overseas gives you a couple days off, there’s nothing better than taking advantage of that time and getting out and exploring. Pro athlete, Rachel Krabacher, has been able to do that a few times and shared with us her 2 favorite places she’s traveled to:
1. Interlaken, Switzerland. Interlaken is gorgeous! It is the area between two connecting lakes in the Swiss Alps. We went planning to take a train to the top but when we discovered how expensive the trains were we decided to start hiking. We only hiked for an hour and a half up the mountains, past waterfalls, but the views were incredible, not to mention the hike was quite the workout in itself as well!
2. Paris, France. Paris was very different for me. Being from a suburb outside of Cincinnati and living in a very small town in Switzerland, spending time in such a big city was incredible. We didn’t realize how big the city was until we tried to walk from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower. It was only a few inches on the map but no one guessed it would take all afternoon to walk there and back. The buidlings we saw on the way and the little shops down the alley ways were way worth the walk though. Not to mention Nutella crepes from street vendors!
