Three Countries in a Day
We haven't had time or internet for the last few days so I'll update several at once. We left Genoa last Monday morning, had lunch in Milan and then arrived at Lausanne in Switzerland for our next stay. While there we found that we could take a boat trip across Lake Geneva and be in France in 35 minutes. Of course we couldn't resist so we arrived in Switzerland at 5.15 and and hour later we went to Evian in France for dinner- doesn't everyone? LOL
We ate crepes as our French cuisine and enjoyed the boat ride too. There was a storm with lightening when we came back to Lausanne and our schoolgirl French lessons came in handy as "Mon Dieu" came to mind.
One young lad tried to take photos of the forked lightening but missed it every time.
We had an early start the next day as we had one of our big train journeys into the alps so will tell more in the next post.
Hugs, Jan Mac
