Day 165.365 – Luzern to Interlaken

June 14

On day 3 we took a scenic train ride to Interlaken from Luzern. The view was awesome and we reserved this leg of our journey and got excellent view from glass topped coach in the train.

Whole day was spent in moving around the city of Interlaken and we took a boat ride on the scenic Lake Brienz.

Day 164.365 – Mount Titlis and Engelberg

June 13

On our second day, we took a train to Engelberg from where we took the gondola to Mount Titlis. The weather appeared fine, though we would have hoped for more sunshine. Little did I know this was the best weather we experienced, as later we took a train to Jungfrau and it was completely cloudy and foggy that day.

Day 163.365 – Zurich

We finally took our long awaiting vacation to Europe which had been meticulously planned for over two months now.

Our first day was spend in Zurich and then we took a Swiss train to Luzern where we would be staying for 2 days.We were not off to a good start, as the airlines lost our checked in luggage and we were stranded with no clothes for the next 4 days. It was a miserable experience, where they assured we will receive our bags for sure within a day’s time. Apart from this our experience in Swiss was wonderful so far.

We did a small tour around Zurich before heading off to Lucern on the same day. Took a train from Zurich airport to the central station in Zurich and did a quick round of the town, before boarding for a train to Luzern. Our Swiss pass covered all this.

We spent relaxing and touring around Old town areas in Luzern, navigating had been slightly difficult, being in a non English speaking region, but so far so good. Luzern is a small town centered around this wooden bridge and is the base for most of the mountain excursions.
