The best way to sum up Switzerland is by saying it is a postcard. Everything you see in Switzerland could be and probably is a postcard. It is so beautiful you start to doubt if it’s even real. Needless to say, I took a hundred thousand pictures of Switzerland. I have done my best editing down to only the really pretty ones of all the pretty pictures.This was on the overnight train from Ljubljana into Zurich. This was my last and best overnight train experience. It was all girls in my cabin and everyone got on and off at the same stops – no annoying guys getting on in the middle of the night. Also, I was so tired by this point that I slept really well. My train from Zurich to Lausanne. Everything is fancy in Switzerland.My first peek at Lake Geneva.I wish it was a clearer day, but it was still pretty.Their claim to fame: the Olympics. I did not go into the museum. I didn’t go to France this trip, but I looked at it!If I was an old person I’d camp out here all day too. Me and a swan hanging out at Lake Geneva. It’s a rough life, I tell ya!Pretty much every caption can be, “It’s real pretty here.”Swiss Francs are so colorful. Also, if I was posing for a picture that was to be placed on my country’s money, I would smile. Be happy! You’re the face of the 100!I took a train to the nearby town of Montreux. Still on Lake Geneva, so there’s not much change in the scenery. Chateu Chillon. Full disclosure: this is not my picture. Unfortunately it did not suddenly become sunny.There’s my version. A bit dreary. It was glorious to be back in cool weather again as well.
I love any city that has a Freddie Mercury statue and Freddie Mercury Memorial Day. He had a recording studio in Montreux where he wrote and recorded his last songs. Such a creepy mime. His basket was empty.So pretty and colorful.My last shot of Montreux before I headed to my amazing Golden Pass panoramic train to Lucerne. My Switzerland adventures were just beginning!
