<<"In Montreux you can visit nearby Chillon castle, one of the best kept
and most scenic medieval castles in Switzerland. You can take a lcal
cogwheel train to Rochers-de-Naye and enjoy a breathtaking view on the
lake and the Alps.......">>
You are absolutely right about the many attractions of Montreux. It has been a while since I was there, but I wonder if the hillside location could offer some minor nuisance factor with the small children.
And, my intent was not to denigrate Montreux, but, rather, to respond to Jenivis' emphasis on time of travel.. It might be desirable to build a schedule that gets them all together as fast as possible, while minimizing travel time for the Aussie contingent. So, I was exploring how to do that. Not saying it should be done, but offering a choice based on Jenivis' emphasis on time of travel.
As we engineers say when managing a project - setting priorities, then doing the trades offs between time to completion, quality of results, and cost . ;-)
