We spent 2 nights in Lucerne, Switzerland. Lucerne is truly beautiful.
View from our hotel. Look at the alps on the left!! We were really lucky to get a room with an open balcony!
Our cosy room!
We reached Lucerne only in the evening and did not take up the optional tour so we had dinner at the hotel before going to bed early.
It was bright and early morning as we all went aboard a boat on Lake Lucerne of central Switzerland and the fourth largest in the country!
The younger folks with our Trafalgar guide, Emile!
It was freezing!! But it didnt stop us from going above to have a better view of Lake Lucerne!!!
Wolf hat!! :D
With my sissy!!
Arrived at the foot of Mount Pilatus! We were going onto the cogwheel railway, the world's steepest cogwheel railway! From Alpnachstad to Pilatus Kulm, it's 2,128m up to Mount Pilatus which overlooks Lucerne in Central Switzerland!
Family shot before we went up!
See how steep it was!!! And as we went higher, we started to see snow!!!! Everyone on the cogwheel got real excited!!!!!!
Fascinating rock faces!!
Family shot on Mount Pilatus!
It was snowing quite badly so we couldn't capture the view very well. It was sooo cold!
And so besides snowball fights, we took some jump shots. Not some, but quite a lot cause it was not easy to get everyone up :X
Finally!! Though my hair was in my face haha! :D
We spent about an hour on Mount Pilatus before taking the other form of transport down, the cable car!
So happy cause it was so beautiful!!!
First we saw snow, alps, then we saw beautiful lush meadows carpeted with Alpine flowers!
After we were back on foot, it was free and easy time at the shopping area by Luzern lake. I have really no idea what is the shopping area called. Pilatus Street or Old Town Square.
But it's definitely not difficult to miss cause it's a small place. You will be greeted by these beautiful swans!!
So many of them!!
We walked around to look for a supermarket to get more water before we headed back to the hotel and I must say that all the fruits and vegetables look so good!!!!
In all still with the stems!!
Ended our day at Bachmann's Land of chocolate! We got some swiss chocolates and ice cream!!!
Back at the hotel for dinner and a few shots before night falls.
Doing a split with a beautiful view :P
We were going to Paris the next day, our last leg of the Trafalgar tour before we headed back to London. I remember being super excited to see the Eiffel Tower and shopping!!! It's 2 nights in Paris! :D :D
