I just returned home from my Switzerland trip. Switzerland is not spared from the severe cold weather gripping Europe. We slugged through below -15 degree celsius, took a wrong turn, fall down from the hill tops and survived a snow storm high in the mountains. More on that later. Never been so glad to be alive. Give me some time to catch up and reply to the comments and emails. Meanwhile, here is a view of the winter landscape at Beatenburg station. It was snowing heavily when we arrived at the station.
