Cleaning a hotel room has everything to do with Swiss culture, since some of the best schools on hotel management are in Switzerland and many Swiss work in the hotel business and they are really sought-after employees worldwide.

:yess: got it!  The cowboys are cleaning up at the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern

their website says "...since January 2nd, 2014 all available rooms are renovated!", but the carpet, bed, drapes, lamps, and chairs match!

That's the Frecciarossa train (Italy High Speed Rail) behind the girls.  :-[ Oooops! I need to get my eyes fixed, as that's really the Frecciabianca train (High Speed Rail between Milan and Venice) behind the girls.  That would make this location to be the Milan Central Station.  The girls are on a different train, probably going from Milan to Lucerne.

Frecciabianca schedule

Edited to add:  Forget what I said before, almost positive now this is Milan Station.  :groan:

Gd Saconnex (Grand Saconnex) is a municipality in Geneva btw. It is shown at the road sign on the right. Where were they going?




You've been duped! :snicker:

Ahh true. I should have looked that up. I hope that the task is similar to TAR Canada's RCMP challenge.

At 0:22 my jaw dropped.  :ascared I really opened my mouth, I really did.
This is starting to get reaaaly sad, though I can't wait to see the episode (which looks to have great & interesting tasks) and read people's reactions. :o The casuals on facebook especially, the Brenchel hate should really minimize!

 :waves:  Cool preview, Alenaveda.  I see an "ice cave" and "gondola".  Mt. Titlis has a glacier ice cave, but is in Engelberg, a short train ride from Lucerne.  They have gondolas there too.  Closer to Lucerne is Mount Pilatus, with gondolas but no ice caves to speak of.

Chiasso, Switzerland is the border city on the border of Italy/Suisse. TAR was at that train station in TAR14. Teams have to switch from Italian trains to Suisse trains, then thru the Gotthard Tunnel  to get to Lucerne.
