We were in Switzerland for a long weekend. Lausanne is a very pretty city. It has the air of civilisation defined. This is Place de la Palud and on one side is Hotel de Ville where people get married. The area is packed on a Saturday with a proper farmers market in the morning. Along […]
To see this view we had to travel up the steep narrow railway to Les Rochers-de-Naye, where we were greeted by a stunning view of Lac Leman. For this moment the world is serene. This image is available in various sizes and formats. Please let us know if you don’t see what you want. Copyright […]
