This is my 3rd attempt trying to see the Matterhorn. The first two were thwarted due to rain or snow.
Finally, I see it twenty years after I first became fascinated by it.
It’s been a long day, starting in Sydney, flying to Bangkok, then to Zürich. I then caught a train to Bern, then on a branch line via Thun, Spiez, and Kandersteg to Brig. Then, another branch line, the former BVZ, now called the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, to Zermatt. Then, finally, Gornergratbahn to my hotel in Riffelberg and on to the Gornergrat, from where I hope to have a magnificent view of the world’s most iconic mountain.
