Montreau, Switzerland

If you have never been to Monttreau Switzerland, you may want to consider a trip there some day. It is located on Lake Geneva.

As you can imagine, hotels take great care in their ability to keep the rooms warm, especially when it is snowing. The room had shutters on the windows that kept out the light as well as cold air and were mechanical. Just like in a James Bond movie, we could open the shutters electrically by simply pushing a button.

I was laying there under the warm covers and as the shutters opened they displayed the most beautiful site I had ever seen. It was like being in a movie. As the shutters slowly opened, there out the window were the Alps. They were gray with snow covered tops against the most beautiful blue sky with wisps of white clouds gently being moved by a breeze.

I have never experienced a more wonderful sensation. I felt as though I was looking at heaven.

The food there was exquisite and we enjoyed our walks through the gardens and riding on Lake Geneva in the site-seeing boat. We even rode up Mt. Roche on a cog train and ate in a restaurant on top of the mountain that has one wall made of glass so you can watch hang-gliders leaping from the mountain heights and gently floating by the window.
