The Last Trip- Lucerne and Interlaken, Switzerland

Done!  Basta!  Finito!

We’re heading back to the states this weekend.    It’s bittersweet, but it will be good to see our families again.  🙂

We celebrated our last European weekend with a trip to Switzerland.  Beautiful, cold, cloudy, Switzerland.

We had hoped to have a few final breath-taking mountain views to take with us back to the states, and instead we got a whole lot of cloud cover and rain.   Luckily though, the rest of the country was in bloom.

Lucerne was beautiful (how many times have I said that this trip?).  We only spent a morning there, but it’s the perfect Swiss town.  While in Interlaken, we headed up to the town of Wengen via rack railway.  The views were amazing- but the cloud cover kept us from going higher on the Jungfrau (one of three mountain peaks nearby).  We also seemed to hit Wengen during the Swiss’s afternoon break- almost everything was closed until 2pm!   Still, it was fun to see the massive amounts of snow they still have on the ground.

I’m putting both cities down on the list to return to someday- preferably in the middle of summer.

For the HUGE gallery- Lucerne is first with the river/bridge photos.  Interlaken/Wengen follow, starting with the train pictures in the town of Lauterbrennen.

    Well done!

  2. I hope you are cherishing those days, moments, and photos. You need to write a book about your European adventures.
