I missed my train! Argh. The train station was so busy I couldn't find my way to that correct platform in time. I arrived just as it was pulling away. For a moment, I thought about running and jumping on the train, but being there's national police with semi-automatics walking around, I figured that would not be a smart idea.

The view of the Swiss Alps on the drive was amazing. It was like nothing I've ever seen and photos don't do it justice.
