Series on my visit / my trip to SWITZERLAND - Zermatt and Geneva's surrounding areas - From April 18th to 30th 2015 - #019 !





GORNERGRAT BAHN (II)!

In the SIX first days in SWITZERLAND, the weather was perfect, although the weather forecast didn't say that some days before my traveling to that wonderful Country! I was lucky to have 5 entire days of blue skies above and plentiful sunshine, so I could enjoy the enormous beauty of that place at its best!
I took this picture while walking around one of the several trails one can take in the outskirts of Zermatt!
Yes someone on the comments mentioned, I answer now: I spent around half an hour over there, waiting for the trains to pass and to get the best shots from them in these compositions!

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.
