... next adventure, a cog railway up to a glacier. One that used to be so big it was known as the La Mer de Glacé (Sea of ice). Unfortunately those days were long gone. There were markers along the walk down to the glacier that showed its size in years gone by. It has really shrunk in the last decade, which was quite saddening. The route to the glacier involved the cog railway, then a cable car, then 200 steps. Inside the ...

... by for another rescue mission.

Anyhow, back to today. I walked along the lake shore for 7 hours to get here. It started in the rain and it remained quite gloomy even after it stopped. Above me on the hillside were terraced vineyards that surprised me a little as I didn't know the Swiss went in for wine-making.

... and back to our hotel in Lausanne (5 hours). We were pretty exhausted by the end of it but would highly recommend the Glacier express! It is such an amazing way to take in the sights of Switzerland if you only have a short time.

Wednesday - we went to the Chateau de Chillon. It was really awesome to wander around the castle and read about the history of the place and to learn that Lord Byron was imprisoned here for a while. We even got to see where he etched his ...
