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.
