They go outside and play around, riding a scooter. When Gunhoo tries to drive a truck, he remembers what his sister has taught him before and does it right away. Then he drives a train and Kwanghee patiently assists him in making the train move.
On their way to the next destination, suddenly Naeun needs to pee. Kwanghee takes her to a subway but it requires to pay some fees to enter. He decides to pay for Naeun only and waits outside while carrying Gunhoo. Naeun comes back happily before she realizes that her bag is still in the toilet. She looks like she wants to cry and asks Kwanghee to take the bag before someone else does. Before they pay, a lady appears and brings Naeun’s bag and gives it to Kwanghee.
They nearly miss the train to the next destination. Naeun and Gunhoo start to get bored as they get on the train. Kwanghee tries to entertain them but fails so many times because of the timing that doesn’t match and they go through so many tunnels so they can’t see the view often. However, that doesn’t stop Kwanghee from trying. He puts out something from his bag and performs some magic that attracts the kids.
Then, Naeun says that she is hungry. Kwanghee has prepared some pieces of bread for the three of them and gives it to Naeun. Yet, Gunhoo seems uninterested so Kwanghee says he has prepared something special for Gunhoo. That is Korean sesame oil which has been introduced to him previously. After adding some semase oil on the bread, Kwanghee gives it to Gunhoo and Gunhoo seems to like it.
For the next destination, they go to a high place called Schiltron (2,970 meters above sea level) which is higher than Mount Paektu (2,750 meters asl). To go up there, they have to take the mountain cable car for around 30 minutes. Gunhoo looks so excited while Naeun seems scared. Gunhoo then tries to pet her and comfort her. Naeun gives him a kiss and when the cable car starts moving, Gunhoo holds her hand.
However, they have to change cable car three times if they want to go to Schiltron. They can see the beautiful scenery below them from a meadow in a large green field to a mountain covered in snow. Suddenly, Kwanghee smells something bad and assumes that Gunhoo pooped but later Naeun admits that she is the one who farted. Both Kwanghee and Naeun cutely apologize to Gunhoo.
Before reaching Schilthron, they visited Birg, which is 2,677 meters high to wait for their final cable car. It is a famous photo spot with Jungfrau in the back. Unfortunately, when they arrived, the clouds had surrounded the spot so they could barely see the view behind it. Kwanghee got startled when he realized that the floor below them is almost transparent like a sieve so they can see what’s below them. Opposite to Kwanghee, the kids were excited and even jumped right on the floor.

While waiting for the next cable car, Gunhoo fills up his stomach with milk. After a while, the clouds started to go away and they could gradually see the sky and the mountain below. They finally take the cable car and arrive at Schilthron safely. Kwanghee and Naeun are busy making “Yahoooo” noises from up there while Gunhoo finds a new friend. He pokes her with his windmill toy but doesn’t get any response.

Next, they go to a clean town in Switzerland called Murren. It is like a fairy tale village because it is so clean and the kids are loving it. While enjoying the view, they hear music from a house and approach the source. As the man plays the accordion, the kids start spinning and dancing along with Kwanghee. Naeun talks to him and asks if she can play the accordion while Gunhoo spots a trumpet drawing on a chair and pretends to play it.
After spending some time they sit down to order delicious food called rachlette. With the help of translator Naeun, they order rachlette for three. It’s basically a bowl of boiled potatoes which are served with melted cheese. Naeun asks the lady to serve the cheese quick and starts singing. Naeun eats the food happily unlike Gunhoo who refuses to eat it.
Unfortunately, Kwanghee has to go back to his work. Naeun tells him to stay and even does a magic spell so he won’t go. Naeun says that she has a gift for Kwanghee and it’s a song that she made on her own!

Gunhoo’s Amazing Facts
Gunhoo was still two years old at the time and during the tour in Switzerland, we can discover new things from him. At first, we all thought that he babbled in Korean but when they hang out with their German aunt, we were able to find out that he blabs in German too. Even there are times when he babbles in English. That makes him babble in three languages and mixes them all the time!
Gunhoo is a friendly kid as he likes to greet people around him. When Kwanghee and the kids took the train to Lucerne, Gunhoo greeted every passenger that he passed by before finding a seat. On another occasion, he greeted another Swiss kid that he met on the way. First at the funicular and second at the Schilthron. He looks like he wants to interact with every kid and that makes him a very friendly kid!
He has a really high curiosity for anything around him. He likes to wander around alone and explore any new thing. In the market, when they were buying tomatoes, as Kwanghee was focused on the seller and Naeun, Gunhoo started wandering around by himself and walked towards the crowd alone. Thankfully, Kwanghee noticed him and followed him from behind. Not only at the market, whenever Kwanghee puts him down after carrying him, he starts walking around by himself. He sure is like a free bird!
While waiting for their food, Kwanghee gave Naeun a mirror and told her to take a look at herself in the mirror. Then he gave it to pouty Gunhoo which stunned him for a moment but then his mood seemed brighter than before. He kept looking at his reflection in the mirror for a really long time. It would seem that he enjoyed looking at himself in the mirror!
From the beginning, Gunhoo doesn’t really eat much in Switzerland. It seems like he doesn’t really like Swiss food and prefers Korean food like he usually eats. Every time they take time to eat a meal, Gunhoo seems to refuse to eat it. Thanks to Kwanghee, Gunhoo can stuff himself in the train with bread that is covered with Korean sesame oil that he likes.
