We spent only 5 days in Switzerland (it ain't cheap!), and I loved it there. The country itself had overall a genuinely warm, kind vibe.
We stayed in the French-speaking region of the country, in a city called Lausanne, which is on the opposite side of the Lake from Geneva, and has apparently been called "the San Francisco of Switzerland."
The lake is called Lac Leman in Switzerland, ...
We started the day with a 30 minute walk from Ouchy to Pully where Barbara and Claude live - a walking track along the shores of lake Geneva, passing the Olympic Museum and lots of beautiful gardens. A quick coffee then off we drove through the wine region of the Puidoux, a world heritage listed region famous for vineyards on the side of the mountains for as far as you can see. The small old villages make wine the old way (stipulated by law) and you can smell the fermentation as you ...
Our day trip to Gruyere gave us our country side and small rural village experience in Switzerland. Beautiful rolling hills of green pastures and wooded forests lead to Gruyere, the town famous for that cheese. The old town (for tourists) is a single quaint street with restaurants, hotels, and craft shops. After a coffee and short walk, we had lunch at Le Chalet de Gruyeres, famous for its fondue.

There was a farm zoo around the lake - geese, ducks, pigs, sheep, ...
We woke up early because we had a building site next door which was being steam rolled to build a BMX track on we found out. That would be fine if they didn't start at 7am, what with that and the train track which circles the lake at close proximity. We were destined to wake up early today. I took the kids for a bike ride whilst Toni went for a walk into town to look for postcards and provisions for a picnic.
We cycled a good way down ...
