Lake Geneva Region : Geneva, Montreux & Golden Pass Train
The great Big-bang experiment was trending on the News and it was this time when we were visiting Geneva for a day trip. The great CERN lab where the experiment was undertaken on the gigantic Large Hadron Collider in situated in this region of the world. We took the Bahn – train - from Zurich Hauptbahnof (railway station) on beautiful morning of 2nd August. Again it was the usual gang of me, DU, Akhil and Nitin. As you know from my other posts on Switzerland trips, we used day pass for our travel and hence we always tried to take the earliest of the trains. So we were off Zurich on our train by 8 AM. We were lucky enough to get a direct train partly because of the effort in getting out of our beds early. And it was because of this that the train was pulling into Geneva station in just under 3 hours. One thing that one can never forget is the picturesque nature that one gets to see while travelling through any region of Switzerland. The three hour journey was itself a tourist attraction and one could not start a better start of the day.
