Graubünden, Switzerland

A card which came as a great surprise from dear Caroline, since it is an official card!! Always so excited to receive officials from people I know :)


CH-87339

And she has chosen such a beautiful and perfect card for me! Graubünden or Grisons is the largest and easternmost canton of Switzerland and this is Matterhorn-Gothard-Bahn which is said to be an Alpine adventure railway par excellence. The line is 144 km long and leads from Zermatt to Disentis and from Andermatt to Göschenen, covering a difference in altitude of 3300 m, passing through 33 tunnels and galleries and crossing 126 bridges and viaducts en route. The lowest point of the journey is Visp, at 625 m above sea level, and the highest the Oberalppass at 2033 m above sea level. 

I think it is pretty obvious that id love to go on this one too....

you are quite familiar with the cereals' stamps....the third one, at the top right corner is from 2009, from a set of 3 'wedding' stamps.

Thanks a lot again Caroline!!!
