Best Train Ride Ever

I was in Europe with a colleague, working with some customers and we got the rare opportunity to travel from Switzerland to Austria by train. The initial plan was to take a flight, but my CEO, Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana suggested that we take the train and enjoy the scenery along the way. Boy oh boy, wasn’t he right about that?
Starting from Zurich, the train runs several hundred kilometers parallel with the Alps, until it turns South at Salzburg to finally cross the magnificent mountain range to reach the city of Graz, our destination. We had to make two connections along the way and the trip took almost 10 hours, but it totally was worth it and we enjoyed every minute of the journey. A couple of days later, we again crossed the Alps by train, this time to get to the city of Vienna.
I just downloaded all the pictures from my camera to the computer and apparently I have taken several hundred photographs along the way. I have a hard time picking the best of them, and therefore I’m just going to upload a few random photographs here…
