Travel Therapy: Montreux-Vevey area, Switzerland


The 3rd installment from my Europe trip features my day trip to the scenic and beautiful towns of Montreaux & Vevey. Other than my painful shoes, I had the most perfect day in this picturesque region. My time there was spent visiting the famous Chateau de Chillon and just generally chilling by the seaside. We briefly visited Lausanne, but at that point, I was too tired to whip out my camera.  
I hope you enjoy the pictures.

At Ch√Ęteau de Chillon which is located on the shore of Lake Geneva in Veytaux

Chilling at the shore side
Charlie Chaplin adopted the lovely city of Vevey and a statue by the lake side was erected in his remembrance 
Shirt:Old Navy|Shoes:Dr.Scholls|Skinnies:F21
You can see the alps in the far distance
Located across the Alimentarium Food Museum, the giant fork was set up to mark the museum's 10th anniversary

That's all folks,  have a great week.
