Switzerland 2022 

After the year 2021 without visiting my sister Florence in Zug in Switzerland, I finally returned to the Confoederatio Helvetica in March and April 2022. I stayed over a week. More than a family visit, I organised an excursion to French-speaking Switzerland, also known as Romandy, to visit Maxime and the vineyards of Lavaux in the canton of Vaud, near Lausanne. I also booked a journey on the world-famous Glacier Express from Sankt Moritz to Brig. Furthermore, I looked for a nice way in and out. The ÖBB Nightjet night train from Amsterdam to Zurich and the voyage home via Lyon in France.

Lavaux.

It was great to be a full week in Switzerland. I first went to Zandvoort in the Netherlands and then took the night train from Amsterdam to Zurich. I did an excursion to Lausanne and Lavaux in Romandy

I visited Thun and Sankt Gallen. With the Glacier Express, the Thurbo Lake Line and the Voralpen-Express I completed some section of the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland

I was extremely lucky with very nice spring, almost summery weather. Just in the end winter and snow came back. The return was via Chamonix, Aix-les-Bains and Lyon.

Anyway, it was great. 

And there’s plenty left to do and see for quite a few visits. I suppose my sister living in Switzerland helps.
