Oh Switzerland, you have so much of my heart!
We ended our Switzerland trip in the Swiss Alps and Lausanne. I mean, can you really go to Switzerland and not hike the Swiss Alps?! We stayed in a village called, Les Diablerets, which is a small ski resort on the North side of the Alps. Although we didn’t get any snow, we still got to see the breathtaking views that the Alps has to offer.
The Diablerets peak is about 10,500 ft and let me tell you, this was the hardest hike I have ever done. Runyon has NOTHING on this. It was completely uphill, and let’s face it, my workout routine had been nonexistent for two months because of my travels. (I really have to work on that.)
On the hike, we saw cows, baby goats, horses and of course a few Swiss Mountain Dogs (Bernese)!
The drive from Les Diablerets to Lausanne was about an hour and a half. The drive itself was very scenic, with views of vineyards, towns and the ever so beautiful, Lake Geneva. We stopped at the cutest town called Chexbres, which sat right in front of the lake. My favorite part? The city was full of vineyards and wineries! I have always dreamt of having a Summer house in Napa and having my own vineyard. Now I want that in Switzerland too! A girl can dream, right?
We ended the afternoon in Lausanne. Ate some delicious burgers and drank Rivella by the lake. Hashtag bliss.

Pretty lake in the Alps.
How beautiful is this cow?
Restaurant nestled in the Swiss Alps. They only took cash!
These are the old Les Diablerets bubble lifts. They are replacing them this Winter. Many of the locals purchased them when they were taken down. I probably saw at least 10 of the lifts in peoples yards. How sentimental is that?
Chexbres. One of my favorite cities in Switzerland!

Trying Rivella is a MUST, when in Switzerland.
