Hi everyone

Having a great time in Switzerland. Arrived in Zermatt today from Lucerne. Unfortunately, the weather was not kind to us in Lucerne. However, we did manage to get a lake cruise in and end up in Brunnen before taking the train back to Lucerne. The following day, it was raining so we went to Bern for the day and finished the day watching ice hockey. Yesterday in Lucerne the weather too a turn for the worst as it was snowing for the best part of the day.

Having arrived in Zermatt this morning, we wasted no time taking the Gornergrat bahn up to Gornergrat and taking pictures of the majestic mountain of Matterhorn. The weather was great although we were above the clouds and some views below were somewhat restricted. On the way down, we took the train to Rotenboden and we hiked down to rifelberg. Headed back to the hotel to have a soak in the bath and prepare for tomorrow.

Thanks Lucas, was not sure what to put it under. Yes the weather is turning out to be Jekyll and Hyde.

Thinking of travelling to Fiesch as weather is not being great to see if it is any better.
