Oh, the Places You'll Go: Switzerland
Switzerland is amazing. Like seriously, amazing.
First of all, the coolest thing was that when we arrived via train to Zermatt (a skiing town in Switzerland) it was snowing like it does on Christmas day in those Christmas movies. LOVED IT. It was absolutely gorgeous.
The town looked like, well, a ski village. Which it was. But it was all wood and German and snowy and chocolate and beautiful. (And expensive.)
We took a train to the Gornergrat, which is a ridge overlooking the Alps. We had to take a train to get up there, but the view was completely gorgeous and I felt like we were in Narnia. At the top, we ate at the ski lounge and had the world's most expensive food. The view from the top was beyond amazing (see panorama above). We also slid down the hill, which was fun. (I'm the one waving her arms like a person who's escaped the mental asylum in the pink skirt.)
|The Matterhorn (or what we could see of it, at least).|
My brother and I also had a snowball fight at the Gornergrat, and I totally won. (Of course, he claimed he did but I totally destroyed him, without question. You can't even argue with my logic.)
|There was also this church at the top of|
the Gornergrat, which was beautiful.
Basically, Switzerland was beautiful.
I think we'll take a break next week from Oh, the Places You'll Go. After that, France.
Is anyone a good skier/snowboarder? Does anyone else think it's annoying when tiny kids race past you?
