Swiss Train

" Being on a train was lots of fun, and I enjoyed looking out the window!"

So I’m in Switzerland right now, and yesterday I took a train from the town of Lausanne (on the edge of Lake Geneva, where they speak French), all the way to the town of Moras (also called Murten).
Murten is in Switzerland too, but they don’t speak French there – they speak Swiss-German (an old-fashioned kind of German). There is also a part of Switzerland whey they speak Swiss Italian. Lots of languages for Polly to learn!

The train journey was great. Here the trains are always on time, and they are very clean and safe. In Lausanne it was cold but clear weather, but as I travelled North, the ground looked colder and soon there was snow everywhere.

The journey took one hour and a quarter altogether. Very interesting! I wonder what I’ll do in Switzerland next?

  1. Wow, Polly, I can’t believe you are in Switzerland! I guess that means you will be able to sample all of the great tasting chocolate that they have there.

    Your train adventure sounded like a lot of fun!

  2. Call her Polly the bi-lingual travel frog! I can’t wait to see her yodeling and skiing. What a wonderful place for a travel frog to go!

  3. Awesome!

  4. I’ve heard that there are a lot of high speed trains in Europe. Is the train you were on a high speed one?

  5. I wonder what Polly will do next in Switzerland too! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I want to see the Alps and I bet Polly would love to learn how to yodel!

  6. Wow polly that must be fun I want to go there!
