The other day, I posted a collection of photographs showing the snowy mountains from Montreux to Gstaad. This post takes you through the same train journey during Summer. This was part of my birthday celebration that my husband and I spent at the Montreux Jazz festival.
First stop: Montreux train station
On the jazz train: what an awesome and sensuous experience this was, enraptured by the beautiful cacophony of sound while drawing in the lush green landscape of the Swiss Alps – felt like a divine ascension.
Arriving in Gstaad: When we arrived in Gstaad we were received by the town mayor , given freedom of the town and treated to a delightful spread of local cheeses, meats and wine.
It was while sitting on the pavement of Gstaad that I met one of my soul mates and she has been an important part of my life ever since, three years later.
