Last night I attended a talk in Lausanne on climate change and sustainability given by Lynette Thorstensen to Executives International at the Palace Hotel. Anyone who has ever gone to the hotel from the train station knows you either hike three blocks or so steeply uphill (and do NOT wear heels, sheer hell on uphill cobblestones) or you take the wimpy option and pay for a taxi. That’s all in the past, I discovered last night. A train ticket includes a Mobilis ticket for an hour, which covers public transport. And that includes the marvel of Lausanne, the newish M2 Metro. Two minutes, no sweat, no extra money and I was at the Palace.
More on the the presentation tomorrow. Meanwhile, check out the GenevaLunch Travel Guide details for Lausanne, especially if you haven’t visited the city for a few months.
