I checked out of my hotel in Milan at 7am and by the time I got settled into the train to Bern I was ready to fall asleep again. But I’d taken the train through Switzerland before and I knew it’s a journey I wouldn’t want to miss.
I wasn’t disappointed. The scenery is some of the most spectacular I have ever seen in Europe. If you get the chance, take this train or just about any other in the region and you’ll see stunning snow capped mountains, beautiful lakes and pretty Italian and Swiss villages.
I’m not sure I have mastered taking photos from a moving train but here are some photos from my recent trip from Milan to Bern in Switzerland.
