Laussane – The San Francisco of Switzerland

6

I am known to be a bit of a planner. But when it came to this past weekend on Friday I had not picked a destination for the weekend adventure. On a whim and by recommendation of Rick Steves before I left I was told Laussane was beautiful and the San Fran of Switzerland. I found a reasonable hotel and found it only to be about 3 hrs by train in the French side of Switzerland. Within a few minutes of being on the train, life switched from German to French and I felt much more at ease. I started thinking of all the French food I had missed including the delicious croissant I would have for breakfast.

I was up before the sun and ready to explore the city. I will explain in further posts this week more about the city. I started to explore with my camera and I stumbled upon the snow topped mountains. There I fell in love with the beauty of Laussane!!

    Lausanne is one of my favorite cities to day-trip too…unfortunately I’m too cheap to stay overnight! I love walking down in Ouchy, though! You should post more photographs- it’s a marvelous town! Did you get to the Musee de l’Art Brut? It’s one of the most amazing museums I have ever been too!

    Thanks for sharing your lovely photographs!
