Something a bit different today! Ben and I went to Switzerland for the weekend and stayed with a family friend of ours who lives in a country town called Montmagny. We had such an amazing time and we both absolutely loved it there. Switzerland is quite like how I imagined. Very green and absolutely beautiful with it’s magnificent mountains and lakes and hills. Resulting in many photos being taken! In the weekend we got to see lot’s of the countryside, the mountains and lakes, eat some swiss food and of course some of the utterly divine swiss chocolate. If only chocolate hauls were thing, I would be very good at that.
We arrived Friday afternoon and left Monday morning so we got a pretty decent two days! On Saturday, our friend Liliane showed us around the countryside and took us to some lovely country towns and places. And on Sunday we got up bright and early to catch the train to go to Zermatt and to see the famous Matterhorn. The Matterhorn is the big white pointy mountain that stands over Zermatt and the peak is 4478m high! It is a big mountain range and in the winter a huge ski resort! I can’t even imagine how fun it would be in the winter. It was a few hours on the train to get there but it was worth it and going through the mountains is a pretty spectacular sight. I couldn’t believe how busy it was too! So many people up early on a Sunday to go walking in the mountains! Zermatt is definitely a must do when visiting Switzerland. And in the winter I bet it is even more beautiful. It was so refreshing going to Switzerland for the weekend and I would never hesitate to go back!
Are you convinced yet? haha. I hope you enjoyed these snaps from our wee getaway! This Friday is our big trip! We are going on a 9 day contiki bus trip from Vienna to Rome! So exciting!
