Europe trip 4-14 - st. moritz d7, glacier express, zermatt d1 001

Train station in St. Moritz Dorf. I probably will not put a lot of pictures in this folder because of the sheer number (400 plus), my inability to remember details about the pictures, and the fact that this blog is about skiing, not train trips. I hope to have descriptions for some of the more interesting pictures.
