Travel Blogs from St. Vincent
Alas we are leaving Switzerland, it is a glorious sunny morning so the Matterhorn was very visible and glowing in the early morning light. We are in the train to Visp where we connect with the train to Geneva. As we move away from Zermatt the clouds close in. From Visp 2 1/2 hours to Geneva airport passing through small towns and larger ones like Montreux, Lausanne and ...
... we leave the protective bubble of the car, it is very cold with winds and sleet/rain. We are at the feet of Matterhorn but it is shrouded in cloud. Below us is a magnificent valley with glaciers and terminal moraine. As we walk the rain and winds abait the clouds lift to give a glimpse of the Matterhorn.

... barn to small barn, letting them eat the stored food. So straight across the road to the main Brig Station. Platform 4. On the train now to Milano Central. Italy, here I come. The ticket collectors are so helpful on the trains. The lady on the last train told me that I need to go to Platform 4 for the Milan train. Great to know ahead of time. Arrived Turin with no trouble.
