We returned to Spiez by train and walked to Amsoldingen.
We hadn’t intended to go the whole way but arriving in Gwatt, we had to make a decision and as we had
not walked far at that point, decided to continue. There were some lovely old churches on this stretch
and we stopped near Einigen to drink a hot chocolate and eat vermicelles in a small cozy wooden cafe
with quirky decorations. Einigen church was founded over 1000 years ago which gave us a feeling of
following in very old footsteps. The way continued to Amsoldingen but it was dark by the time we arrived.
Being sure that the basilica there would be closed, we were surprised to find that this was not the case.
Finding a light switch we were able to enjoy this wonderful place and spent time in prayer in the crypt
which was a lovely end to our day’s walk. From there we took the postbuss to Thun and then the train home.
