Having alighted the Shearing’s coach at Folkestone, dinner on board the P&O, we travelled to the Novotel hotel at Reims for an overnight stop. After frequent stops and beautiful scenery we arrived at Park hotel at Meiringen in Switzerland which was for the next 3 nights, being next door to Sherlock Holmes museum. Our first day here started with a walk to the railway station as we were going on the Golden pass railway to Lucerne passing a couple of lakes on route. The welcome of Lucerne railway station is not to be missed with the lake and the famous Kappelle bridge full of flowers and tourists. We could wander around on our own but I had a cruise on the lake which was bliss as it was a lovely sunny afternoon. The coach then took us back to the hotel and time to explore Meiringen. Next day coach over 4 passes and many hair pin bends, snow on the tops but scenery breath taking, all passes being different. Davos was our next base for 3 nights, we went partly by train on the glacier express and the latter by coach, with different scenery. the next day was free to use our pass on cable cars, buses etc. and explore the area. The final day in Switzerland was my favourite as we were on the Bernina express railway for 3 hours before descending into Tirano in Italy, just in time for lunch and an ice cream. Then our coach met us and we came back over the passes back to Davos for our last night special dinner. Our final night was in Reims by the cathedral then Calais, and home. We were offered frequent drinks on the coach and the seats had adjustable backs which were very comfortable.
