Vi tog tåget ner tillbaka till Montreux, vilket tog ca 1 timme. Man kan välja att ta tåget upp och gå ner eller göra så som vi gjorde, gå upp och ta tåget ner.
I Geneve bodde vi i gamla staden, nära St Peters Katedral. Staden har ett bra utbud av shopping och det finns allt från förmånliga till dyra affärer. På matmenyn serveras raclette, fondue, kött, fisk och korv. Vi hittade också vegetarisk mat, även om alla restauranger inte hade det alternativet.

Ännu liten bit kvar, masten som syns på vänster sida var vårt slutmål
Still a way to go, the mast visible on the left side was our ultimate goal
The week before we moved to Singapore, we traveled to Geneva on vacation. We like to hike in the mountains and enjoy being outdoors. One day we took the train from Geneva to Montreux, which took 1 hour. The goal was to climb Rocher the Naye, 2,042m. We had loaded our bag with water, fruit and nuts, because we knew it would take a few hours to climb the mountain and get to the top. It was uphill most of the way, either stairs or road. So a good basic exercise is required. We walked through forest, through small villages with beautiful views. On the way we found raspberries and wild strawberries that were so good. Going up to the top took us almost 5 hours and the feeling to have reached the top was powerful. You feel really proud and happy that you made it. Once up we enjoyed the views and the carrot cake / chocolate cake we had at the café. And right at that moment, when the energy was low, I felt that I ate the world's most delicious cake :)
We took the train back down to Montreux, which took about 1 hour. One can choose to take the train up and walk down, or do as we did, walk up and take the train down.
In Geneva, we lived in the old city, close to St Peter's Cathedral. The town has a good range of shopping and there's everything from inexpensive to expensive shops. On the food menu you were served raclette, fondue, meat, fish and sausages. We found also vegetarian food, even if all restaurants did not have that option.
