>We landed at Switzerland from the dusty plains of India. Our first thought was, ‘when can we touch snow?’. We waited for a week at Montreux where we looked at the snow capped mountains from our hotel room. And then off we went to Zermatt. Zermatt is at the base of the Matterhorn Glacier. The Matterhorn is one of the most famous peaks of the Swiss Alps. And it is the peak on Toblerone packs.
I soon got my bearings and began to enjoy the expereince.
But it was easy to understand why Switzerland is a favourite with honeymooning couples. I still stand by Goa and the bus ride with chickens though.
We won’t forget the lovely cafe at the glacier. Surprisingly not a tourist trap unlike what one would expect of a shop at such a place. Souveniers and food were the same price at shops at terra firma. That’s where K was breaking her head with the dumb the cell phone call centre person with her astronomical phone bill (that’s her with the red bag). A call which was at ISD rates and not toll free!!!!
