All this while in Switzerland we traveled on the Swiss Travel Pass. This is absolutely the most convenient and cheapest way to travel in Switzerland. Beautiful country. what a scenery. People are friendly and eager to assist and guide you to the correct places. It is so relax and we see happy faces all around. Why would they want to live anywhere else. Related our adventures to friends and rellies who are now raring to visit Switzerland.
In our 70's now, we thought we may not be able to "ascent" to the four mountains but surprised ourselves that we made it. The weather was conducive and with friendly help around, it made our adventure even more enjoyable and memorable. Here's to SWITZERLAND!
Thank you all for all the tips and advice. Kudos to MySwissAlps.com
Signing off for now.
