We leave the Lake of Como heading for Berlin, where we plan to arrive the first week of January; on our way up north we are going to visit some friends in Lugano and Bregenz. Afterwards we continue our drive defying the weather, knowing that most likely it won’t be favorable. What is life without a little adventure? ;)
Lausanne, one of French Switzerland major cities, is built on the shores of Lake Geneva with the peculiarity of having considerable height differences between the various areas of the city, up to more than 100 meters. It is known among other things for hosting the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee and for its dance school founded by the great Maurice Béjart.
We set ourselves on the road again headed to Austria, but we can not resist the temptation to take a short detour to visit the land of Heidi, the famous heroine of cartoons. Even if it is a classic ‘tourist trap’, (mainly Japanese, but also many Arabs), for fans of the genre and for those who have small children, it would be a shame not to stop for a quick visit.
