Day One: Lucerne, Switzerland

Business travel can suck…

but not when they send you somewhere breathtaking.

I arrived in Zurich this morning and hopped a train to nearby Lucerne, a beautiful city that has everything you probably associate with Switzerland.

Moutains. A gorgeous lake. A slice of history around every corner. And a slice, too. (There are a lot of pizzerias…not that I’m complaining ).

I spent the day walking around this compact little town. I quickly abandoned my map and decided to see what I would see.

I saw an amazing art installation at a local school.

Historic churches.

And a proud pup or two. (This is Figo.)

I also noticed that, in this pedestrian city, no one jaywalks. They don’t smile at passersby,  either. And the church bells peal on the hour, which was rather beautiful.

Tomorrow I have to work (what?) and there is talk of rain, but I hope to fit in some indoor sightseeing during my brief visit.

  1. Beautiful photos! Enjoy your time there and sample some of the best chocolate in the world.

  2. I am jealous.

  3. Surrounded by those gorgeous alps and smack in the middle of it’s 50th anniversary celebration, doesn’t it all make even you want to at least hum a little something from “The Sound of Music????”
