After a few days at my sister’s in Zug, I returned from Switzerland to Antwerp in Belgium via Germany. This meant taking a ICE-train from Zürich to Frankfurt and then an ICE to Brussels. To Switzerland I travelled via France and I wanted to do something else. Plus it’s a great excuse for an extra…
Staying with my sister in Zug in February, I insisted on going up a mountain. We decided to go to the Mythenregion, around the Grosser Mythen and the Kleiner Mythen. Those are mountains in the vicinity of Schwyz in the canton of Schwyz.
My sister lives in Zug. After taking the Thalys from Antwerp tot Paris, the TGV Lyria to Lausanne and staying in Montreux, I used the GoldenPass Line in Switzerland. Starting in Montreux and ending in Lucerne (Luzern).
On my way to my sister in Zug in Switzerland I stayed in Montreux, in the French speaking canton of Vaud. I chose Tralala Hotel as it’s walking distance from the railway station, it had a good price and it seemed overall nice for one night. Also, I found the name funny.
TGV Lyria is the brand name for trains between France and Switzerland. In February I travelled from Paris Gare de Lyon to Lausanne.
My sister lives in Switzerland now and Danny has toured the Confoederatio Helvetica in September. Let me write about Zürich, which Frank and I visited in January 2016.
Welcome, 2019. A special year. Fifty years ago, in June 1969, patrons of The Stonewall Inn in New York grew tired of yet another raid by the police. Gay, lesbians, bisexuals and mostly: transgenders, transvestites and dragqueens fought back. Those were the Stonewall Riots.
Where next? We have been travelling together since 2013. Together or separately, we have fallen under the charm of some cities we didn’t expect to.
Yes, travelling through the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland in direction of Italy is faster and more efficient. But using the old Gotthard Tunnel and is the scenic option.
Staying at my sister’s in Zug in October, I had a great view of Pilatus, a mountain in the canton of Lucerne in central Switzerland.
