Today we left St Moritz and boarded the Glacier Express, one of the world’s great train journeys. For seven hours we traversed the Swiss Alps crossing 291 bridges and passing through 91 tunnels. The carriages have special panoramic windows so that you can look up and enjoy the view.

There was spectacular scenery all the way.

We arrived in Zermatt at around 5pm and checked into our hotel, above, which has a traditional Swiss chalet feel.

Here is my room.

Each panel on the ceiling has been hand-painted with a different pattern.

This is my view of the Matterhorn from the balcony.

We had dinner at a nearby restaurant called Chez Gaby and then turned in for the night.
