I'll be visiting a friend in Switzerland from 20-09-12 through 30-09-12 but unfortunately he wont have as much time to show me around. I'm very adventurous and would love to venture out on my own sightseeing trips while he is at work. I speak absolutely no French but I'm not going to let that deter me.
I would welcome suggestions for day trips from Lausanne that will allow me to experience this beautiful country. Note that I have been before and have visited the Cathedral of Lausanne. Unfortunately the Olympic museum was still under renovation, not sure if that is still the case.
