A quick hop to Sankt Gallen and Wil to see the Unesco World Heritage site of the St.Gallen Abbey Precinct and to visit Beat in Wil. It does amuse me that you can cross Switzerland in under 4 hours by train when it takes longer than 6 by plane to cross Canada :-)
Old town of Wil (thanks Beat for showing me around!):
and the rather amusing Stinkgässli street where pigs used to be kept as well as garbage dumped and there was even a long drop toilet giving directly onto the street. Obviously today, the street no longer smells but makes for a good story.
And a few pictures as seen from the train returning to the Lake Leman area close to where I worked for 4 years:
