Photo Essay – Riding through the snow in a Swiss train

19 Apr

Our last day in Switzerland was a wonderful surprise with the first snowfall of the season in Zermatt and its surrounding areas. We were leaving Zermatt for Zurich that day and experienced our first snowfall in Zermatt that morning. We then had a beautiful train ride back wherein we saw the entire landscape once again turning white, trees laden with snow and various moods of snow fall – from a gentle fall to heavy lashes. This train ride was also special as when we had arrived in Zermatt we had seen the same area as green (Read – A Scenic Alpine train journey to Zermatt) and its transformation, on the ride back, was like being lucky to be able to witness summer and winter in a single trip.

And sharing my pics of some of these stunning sights below –

The last and best gift from Zermatt – My first ever snowfall

13 Apr

Our trip to Zermatt was filled with many firsts, but it kept the best first for the last.

Ever since we had reached Zermatt, Sonali and I had been hoping that it would snow. But out hosts told us that per their weather forecast the first snowfall for the season was expected to be in about 3 – 4 days after we left. This left us disappointed but since both of us had never seen an actual snowfall, we really hoped that we could see it at least once during our stay. And Zermatt gave it to us as its last present.
