Birthday Trip


On the day when it was actually Lisbeth's birthday we started out by eating omelette and opening presents. Afterwards we took the train to the other end of Lake Geneva to spend the day in and around the city Montreux.


The landscape around Montreux is a fair bit more impressive than around Geneva. Not least due to the way the mountains come much closer to the lake on either side. We walked along the lake from Montreux to Chillon, where we spent hours looking at the castle. The castle is picturesquely situated at lakeside and offers gloomy dungeons, windy paths, awesome halls and vineyards. We declined on the offer to bring home their wine, assuming that we'd be paying more for the name than the quality of the wine.
