La Suisse, part of the @cgn_switzerland « Belle époque » fleet is a 78.5m paddle steamboat fully renovated in 2009 to its past glory. Here it’s cruising towards the @chateauchillon viewed from the Lavaux vineyard (A @unesco world heritage site) in Switzerland. I do understand why people tell me that I’m living in a postcard sometimes…
Getting there is half the fun – especially if the views are as colourful and spectacular as in this photo taken by @domihomi! The Flüela Pass, which is part of the road in the photo, is currently closed. But the next time you go on a road trip in Switzerland, you should definitely head to @graubuenden, specifically @davos.klosters. From there, the winding road leads into the Lower Engadin over the 2,363-metre-high Flüela Pass. Once you reach the top of the pass, it’s worth making a short stop by the small lake, where you can enjoy fantastic views of the Flüela Weisshorn and Schwarzhorn By the way, did you know that the Flüela Pass is one of the ten highest mountain pass roads in Switzerland? Others include the Bernina, Albula, Julier, Susten and Furka passes. Which ones have you crossed? ;-)
❄️ liGht ❄️ Je travaille en Radiologie. Les services où les rayons X volètent et où les spins des protons performent sous cage de Faraday...La lumière, la vraie pas la bleue que me renvoient mes écrans, je ne l'ai pas vue depuis hier fin d'après-midi... j'attends la pause et je me projette au soleil en photo, quand hier, en remontant la pente enneigée, les herbes les plus hautes brillaient comme des diamants...
📍Zermatt , Switzerland 🇨🇭
💡Interesting facts :
🔸The people who live in Zermatt relay their source of economy mostly from tourism. More than 50 percent of all jobs in the town are related to the restaurants and hotels.
🔸The image of the Matterhorn first appeared on @tobleroneglobal chocolate bars in 1960. Before it, the packaging featured an eagle.

Around 120 years ago, Sir Ernest Cassel decided he would build a villa on a near-inaccessible mountain in the middle of nowhere. Many people probably thought he was crazy at the time. But when you see the Villa Cassel now, it’s difficult to imagine a more perfect location. Clear views of the mighty Alps in all directions (Matterhorn included), complete tranquillity, fresh mountain air… what more could you want? Today, a downhill ski run even leads past the villa. You’ll find the time-honoured building in Riederalp in the @aletscharena_ch. Thanks for the great photo, @michelphotography_ch.
If you're looking for a great beach holiday, you can't go wrong with Bang Tao. Is the second largest beach on Phuket and it’s about 6 km long🏝. Unlike some other beaches on Phuket, this beach is almost not influenced by the high and low tides, so you can swim at any time during the day🏊♂️. There is virtually no rocks near the shore and the sea is usually as flat as a mirror between December and April🏖. The sand is soft and it gives beautiful turquoise color to the water🐬. However, on some days, I have experienced something rather weird that I haven’t seen anywhere else. Because of the strong wind that comes from the land, the waves go in both directions. This means that you have waves that come from the sea and you have rather big waves that go back. 🌊🌊
There are some nice restaurants and some famous beach clubs on Bang Tao, also shopping opportunities are just few minutes away by car. The northern part of the beach is not yet touched by the development, so you might find that you have the beach just for yourself.
However, if you are looking for a nightlife, this beach gets fairly quiet after dark✨. I thought it was perfect to watch the sunset 🌅.
