Lausanne, 10 February 2015.

I can’t believe it will soon be a year since my trip to Switzerland. I’ve been thinking about my time there a lot lately and discovered I’ve still got some photos I haven’t posted yet. Here’s part 1, February 10.

The sun was positively blinding that morning. We had a gorgeous day ahead of us.

The ice rink in Flon was completely empty that morning. Next time I go there in winter, I’m definitely taking my skates. 😛

I love the Lausanne metro.

The view of the cathedral is breathtaking. And it really was that kind of a perfect, nippy wintry day, perfect for sight-seeing.

The cathedral is positively fairy-tale.

Oh and they’ve got some really funny bins in Lausanne, too.

We walked up to the cathedral.

The view from there is just as beautiful.

The Alps have stolen my heart.


And of course it’s rather lovely inside as well.

Look at the light!

I still regret being too full after breakfast to go for a cup of hot chocolate there. Next time, maybe.

By the time we’d got to Cuppin’s, though, we were ready for a snack.

Quite possibly the best cupcakes I’ve ever had. Next time I’m getting the bigger ones.

The place is utterly charming. I wish we had a cafe like this somewhere around here.

It felt a wee bit retro and it reminded me of Muriel’s Kitchen, which is one of my favourite spots in London.

We then decided to walk off those cupcakes.

I rather love beautiful railway stations.

I kind of want to make it a spot where I’ll take a photo every time I’m there.

We walked around for a bit and then went back to the hotel to take a break because we had grand plans for the evening.

Art On Ice. Marc Sway, Tom Odell and Nelly Furtado… and most importantly, some of my favourite figure skaters ever. It was a wonderful evening that I’ll never forget. I still get goosebumps whenever my AOI playlist comes up on my iPod. I’d wanted to link you to my favourite performances but then I realised I’d really have to link to all of them. So just go here and watch the whole thing if you like. 🙂
