Travel Blogs from St. Moritz
Regional train from Varenna to Tirano (good thing we bought tickets in Venice because there isn't anyone at the Varenna train station).
Views are lots of tiered vineyards going up the mountain to beautiful homes. Every town has beautiful churches whose steeples are visible from miles away. Quite a few old castles.
... Home again, more sitting around (I love that!) with a culinary masterpiece from Roger, Boeuf en Croute (think beef Wellington without the Wellington). Fantastic! Once again it was thrust into my digestive canal with such speed, there was no time for a pic.
Today we vegged out exchanging stories, some of them even true.
The Swiss - I've been learning a lot about them.

Departed Vienna early on the road to Switzerland to visit my cousin Roger and his partner Joe who have invited me to stay with them in the Alps for a few days. Their home is high in the mountains (1100 meters up) in ...
... one person who has tested my tolerance levels. Travelling through here I am reminded of my favourite childhood book, Heidi. The cows even have bells around their necks as the freely wander around the hills side. I keep looking for her but she is no where to be seen. Tomorrow we head to Lucerne and another train journey. It's great to be off the bus for a while and the views seem even better by ...
... one off bathroom. We had fresh snow on the surrounding mountains overnight from a storm. After a nice brekkie we did a walk parallel with the river on Via Milano to a little town called Premadio. We kept going and after walking up to 1280m then decended back to the main township. We decided to drive the Passo Gavia during a light snow fall on top of the pass at 2652m. During our stay we developed a real soft spot for this area and would love to return with our bike ...

Hotel has no transportation service from train station. It's a long, steep uphill walk; out of the question to walk with this luggage; taxi was 16-francs.
This turned out to be a great place; however, no one was there when we arrived. There was a sign on door to call them only we have no phone. Luckily, a couple from Alberta walked in and they contacted Susanne via their computer. We heard a phone ring, and the man came out of the restaurant and gave us the key. Met Susanne later; such a delightful person.
Room is very nice; larger than expected; very small bathroom. Very clean. Interesting modern frescoes on walls. Great views of St Moritz from up here.
Great breakfast--our first place with the Swiss muesli and all the nuts/fruits.
Ate here for dinner--two people told us this is the best pizza in town; it was good.
