Now found this hotel, and again it seems I struck gold.
I was in a place called Chur, found some wifi, and had a look at what was about?
Now to say it was a good price, to say I was lucky cos they had only been doing online bookings for 3 days, but best was the ride up, so bendy and now I'm high above the village/town and can't wait for breakfast and the ride down.
Got in the room, made friends with my hosts, had a few ...

Before we pulled into the station at Zermatt, our commentary mentioned how the ride up the Gornergrat was 'unmissable' and offers amazing views. I hadn't been planning on doing it because I thought time would be too tight, and if it was even a bit cloudy it wouldn't be worth it. But in Zermatt it was still sunny! There were just a few clouds hanging out at the top of the Matterhorn, so we decided to go for it...the best decision ever!!
