How to Spend a Morning at Château de Chillon

I’m back! It’s been a while since I’ve last posted. Between my classes, internship, and homework, it’s hard finding time and energy to travel on the weekends! Some days I just want to curl up in bed with a good book or catch up on TV.

With Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and How to Get Away with Murder back, at least I have something to look forward to on Thursday nights! You’d be surprised how much work I can get done with #TGIT as my motivation. 😉

Luckily for me, our program planned a trip for us to visit Château de Chillon and Montreux today! The best part of these trips is that they’re all covered for, so all I need to do is show up. 🙂 We took a train to Lausanne (so nice to be back again, I loved Lausanne!) where we then hopped on a boat to Chillon. The ride was incredibly relaxing (and of course very beautiful), and we even got to sit first class!

It was really foggy today so we couldn’t see the mountains, but the château was pretty nonetheless. Apparently it was the inspiration for one of Lord Byron’s poems!

After our visit we walked along the lake to Montreux, a popular resort town in Switzerland, where we’d be taking the train back. I have never seen so many colorful flowers in my life! There were literally flowers of every. single. color.

Things are only going to get busier from here, but I’m definitely looking forward to traveling on the weekends when I can. Next week they’re taking us to Bern, the capital, so it should be fun to explore more of Switzerland. Plus they speak German instead of French, so it’ll be a nice culture change too!
