TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel Carlton Lausanne
Travel Blogs from Lausanne
... Montreux Jazz festival is on so it was quite packed. We saw a few of the touristy things to see, like the Freddy Mercury statue and the Grand Swiss Hotel where Smoke on the Water was written and recorded. We then took a cog train up the alps to Rochers-de-Naye. It is not the highest train in Switzerland to do but it was the closest to where we were staying. It took an hour to wind around ...

John decided to put the bikes together, just outside the police station, so that we could lock them up and leave them there while we got a taxi to our hotel, and then we would walk back the 3 km and get the bikes, riding them back to the hotel. Taxi was great, cheap, and the best 10 euros we've spent. Our hotel for the next ...
... back to Flo's house. I awoke much to my displeasure in a pool of my own sweat. The forecast for this day was calling for a hot hot day and I believed it.

... did!! I was wearing my aerobic shoes from the 90's. Before heading out my friend told me that the shoes were a little "dated" and that they only last for a certain period of time. Of course I didn't really believe her...until a few moments later. Incredible..the whole sole just ripped apart!! Just from a little running. It happened to one shoe and then 5min later, the other shoe fell apart as well. It was freakin hilarious!!
