    Perfect view of Lake Geneva

    Having a room with a balcony overlooking Lake Geneva is definitely a must. The location is perfect; very convenient to have the boat dock and info center right across the street. The Yvan and Gregorie, the two brothers who own this generational family-owned hotel, are so very hospitable; they make you feel like you are a visitor in their home. Yvan loves the US and talking with his guests; he even brought us glasses of a local rose wine and chips. We so enjoyed talking with him and hearing about history of this area. This is a charming, old building right on Grand Rue--what more could you ask for at this reasonable price. No air conditioning; there is a fan and nights were cool enough that we didn't need to have the windows open. Nice big shower with led-color lights--sure didn't expect this! Continental breakfast buffet; they cook whatever eggs, etc. you would like. Gregorie is the head chef, and we enjoyed talking with him the evening we had a delicious lake perch dinner. When we arrived, Dave was at the desk and was so helpful with maps, half-price passes, etc.
    (TIP: Directions from train station to hotel: As you exit the train station, cross the street, turn left, go about one block (50 meters) to escalator going down to Grand Rue, the street along the lake; turn left, go half block to the hotel.)

    9/8 TRAIN -- Zermatt to Montreux
    Had to change trains to get to Montreux. The train schedule was a challenge; finally figured out to look for the train's final destination city--not our destination city. Changing the track at the last minute just added to the challenge.

    Another beautiful train ride through a valley between two …

    ... our way to le Peuty, passing a heard of cows and our first goats. As the day was supposed to be a pleasant hike (14km, 2500ft) and feeling bad about missing the Fenetre d'Arpette the day before, we bumped into some fellow travellers who said they were heading to the col de Balme as well but rather were going via the Chalet de glacier. This was an hour from our current location, back up the mountain (and 45 minutes from our days original starting point!). Not to ...

    We watched the girls play in the park, avoided ice cream - it was only 9 in the morning- and precisely 8 minutes later, the woman I so graciously gave directions to, came up to me and kindly informed me that if we were still going to the museum, we'd need to go the opposite direction.
    Hmm…I was starting to wonder if I needed a technology class….....

    ... over and over "I just can't believe your luck with the weather!! I just can't believe it!" Any excuse to put on a bathing suit and sun worship even for a few hours this summer in Switzerland is lucky apparently…the weather in the german speaking part has been terribly lacking this year…

    We barely made it to the entrance before the kids "needed" plastic toys for the water. Have to admit, the toys ...

    ... press on the hotel on the internet? I spend most of my first night walking around the down town area. It really reminds me of Sausalito, everything here is very very local. All the houses are really delicate and cute. But there are quite a bit of construction going on. I really am curious what they are building. The thing I like most about it is that it feels really safe walking around, there are no suspicious people around. Even there are, I am pretty sure ...
