Jun 16, 2016 - Locarno to Tirano to St. Moritz

Day 6 – Locarno to St. Moritz – June 16, 2016 We received our morning wake-up call early – 6AM - though we really did not want to get up until 6:15AM. We dressed, put our bags out at 6:30AM and went down for breakfast – with our departure time scheduled for 7:15AM. We had to have an early start because we did not know what the traffic would be – and we had reservations on the train all set for 1PM. We boarded the bus as usual – with our group continuing to take up the 2 back rows. Today we started driving along the lakes – first it was...

Jul 22, 2015 - St. Moritz, Switzerland

After the train journey we visited the exclusive resort of St. Moritz. We had to take three escalators to the top for all the shopping. We had free time to explore the ‘Top of the World’ before returning to Milan. St. Moritz is a resort town in the Engadine valley in Switzerland. The highest summit in the Eastern Alps, the Piz Bernina, lies a few miles south of the town. St. Moritz hosted the Winter Olympics in 1928 and 1948. It is a popular destination of the upper class and international jet set, as well as one of the most expensive ski...

Jun 21, 2014 - St. Moritz

21 June 2014 We wake up to sunny skies again and beautiful views of the mountains from our balcony, what a shame we cannot stay longer. We take a taxi again to the bus station where we pick up the Bernini Bus Express which will take us to Tirano Railway Station where we will board the Bernini Express Train to St. Moritz. When we got to the Bus Station and were waiting in the appropriate Bus Stop, I noticed that everyone else had a ticket very different to our internet piece of paper. As we had arrived over 45 mins early, I have time to...

Aug 21, 2012 - St. Moritz 2 - Final Adventures

I struggled but got up at 7am this morning to get my final endeavors in before returning to student life. First up was another epic climb, I was attempting to get as far as I could on Mt. Mezdi right behind our apartment in 90 mins. I climbed a height of about 500m but had to come down for breakfast. It was sweet to see the sunrise over the mountains above the treeline. Not something you do every day. I got back in time, and the 3 of us journeyed to the top of the Corvatsch summit, topping our other mountain cable car rides to an altitude...

Aug 20, 2012 - St. Moritz 1 - Mile High Living

As usual...EPIC scenery, although different than usual. After an hour drive from Lugano we went up in altitude above 2200m (standard tree line height) and there were stunning vistas of surrounding mountains. However all were with a cool barren atmosphere and cows chiming away with their bells as background noise. This was the Julier-pass, yet another great area of the Alps with a few glaciers and massive waterfalls to boot. Then we descended slightly to ~1800m to the St. Moritz area. We've been used to amazing sights in Switzerland so far...

Dec 22, 2011 - St. Moritz

Off this morning on the train for a 2 hr journey by train to St. Moritz and through the glorious, snowfilled valleys and mountains. It was a site to behold. It hasn't stopped snowing here since the day we arrived...I estimate that good 2-3 ft of snow has fallen so far. St. Moritz is a beautiful spot on this earth..the lake wasn't thoroughly frozen yet so we couldn't hike across the lake. Through a binocular at the lake we were able to view a summer sailboat scene on the Lake Moritz. We had a fancy lunch at a swanky restaurant in St....

May 19, 2011 - Across the border

The last two days we have been traveling through the Dolomites, the Italian Alps. We picked up the car in Venice and drove to Cortina. The fist big change, was when we stopped in a little town to buy cheese and fruit. We went to the fruit store and they spoke only German. We walked two doors down to a shop they only spoke Italian..nobody spoke English. All the signs are in three languages, German, Italian and an Ancient Latin language. We had a wonderful drive through the mountains to Cortina. It was closed. Just kidding, it is however a...

Oct 6, 2010 - St. Moritz, Switzerland

Wednesday, October 06, 2010. What a great day! Sunshine again with temps in the 70’s. We decided to drive to St. Moritz in Switzerland only about 50 miles but we heard that St. Moritz just had snow yesterday. We started out on the lakeshore road to avoid the tunnels as much as we could. Very soon we turned east from Lake Como and started to climb and the views were magnificent. We were waved through customs. I don’t know why they even bother having officers stand there just to wave people through. But there we were, in Switzerland. Reaching...

Switzerland Day 1 Paris – Lausanne 17.08.2010 After our traumatic evening at the police station reporting my stolen wallet, we gathered ourselves together & found our way successfully to Gare de Lyon in plenty of time to catch our 8am train. As a consequence of our late night Al & I slept most of the way to Lausanne waking along the way to view the French countryside and quaint little towns. Once in Lausanne we quickly dropped our luggage at the hotel & caught a ferry on Lake Geneva to Montreaux which is a very pretty town (~ 1hr boat trip...
