AU BORD DU LAC!
BY THE LAKE!
ÀS MARGENS DO LAGO!

After visiting the Castle of Chillon, rain was coming and it was heavy! I had to leave, but before that, I took some pictures, like this one, when locals enjoyed some relaxing moments by the lake!

Visiting that Castle for the second time was a different experience. The first time it was cold, it was wintertime! I went there by train all the way from Geneva. This time, it was much warmer, even hot, sometimes and I went by train from Geneva to Montreux and then walked all the way from there to the Castle!
I took this picture while walking from Montreux to the Castle. The other time I also walked from the Castle to that city and here's another difference: all the flowers I saw this time weren't there the other time and that truly amazed me!

Back in 2005, I stayed for the longest time, during my traveling around Switzerland, in GENEVA. It was one of the coldest winters in that city, with all the boats being frozen and broken in Lake Léman!
I visited the city itself and some places around like Gstaad, Montreux, Annecy and Chamonix-Mont Blanc.
This time, a shorter stay, but I truly enjoyed rediscovering it!
It was supposed to rain all the time, but I had a pretty beautiful day (although there were times of rain and cloudy skies).

This is my second traveling to Switzerland. The first time was back in 2005, when I visited Zurich, Lucern, Bern, Geneva, Gstaad, Zermatt, St. Moritz and Lugano (and also included Annecy and Chamonix-Mont Blanc/France and Vaduz/Liechtenstein). That time, I traveled in january/february, so I found everything completely white.
This year's visit is part of my 50 year old birthday's celebration and I had to choose it out of some other options and did it because Zermatt was a place that was kept so strongly in my mind!
One important thing about that other trip and this picture is that I went back to skiing, after my last time in Colorado, in 1983, in the Gornergrat area, in 2005.
