|the big arch in front of lucern bahnhof.|
|this view is really worth it though.|
the water is crystal clear and blue.
switzerland and their clear waters..
i could drown in them
|took early boat out to vitznau|
|mama enjoying the view.|
she's really happy the whole time we were here :)
|i got it from my mama|
|we saw these giants and went shrieking|
and we took pictures
and then other tourists followed suit
we considered jumping off the boat so he could rescue us lol
|the journey to vitznau is one hour long, crossing lake lucerne|
i fell asleep half that time, so tired
honestly, the view was amazing
postcard pictures everywhere
|and swans swimming happily..|
|everyone taking selfies haha|
|mama trying to find a good spot|
there weren't that many people anyway, lol
|i would say, it was a 30 degrees climb?|
it was steep and the view was pretty
|don't you hate it that you are not born a swiss|
|first sighting of snow!|
oh, the feeling is magical.
this coming from someone who never experienced snow,
it is truly something.
|a modern condo overlooking lake lucerne|
|we joked about stranded skiers just wandering around nowhere and went,|
'hey, there's a restaurant!'
and walked in like it's something they do everyday
|the view from rigi kulm|
|this was about time i changed my camera settings to raw format,|
then forgot to change it back to jpeg until the next day... -.-"
so all the following pictures had to be edited.
and sorry, i'm not good with lightroom!
|again, more chinese/korean/japanese tourists|
they all look the same, until they open their mouths and speak
(i can't understand their language but i can distinguish between the three)
|even with the snow all around, it wasn't as cold as we thought it would be.|
maybe amsterdam already desensitized us..
|and we got to play snowball fight for a bit..|
you'd think they're fluffy and soft, but when all balled up it does hurt!
and cold, and made my gloves wet
|that tourist on the right looked so confused lol|
|mama is happy! (and cold)|
|lower, where the snow already melted|
so you get spots of snow here and there :)
|this is just :)|
|we don't get flowers unless we plant them|
and here, flowers just bloom out of nowhere
|it was nearing easter :)|
|mama was tired and thus became childish|
i honestly can't have that much fun because i'm the tour guide -.-"
|waiting for our boat home|
we went back to lucerne from weggis instead of vitznau
|titlis is another mountain in lucerne area,|
if you have two or more days in lucerne then you have to explore titlis
you get to ski :)
|that is kapellbrücke, or chapel bridge|
it is really really old
|mama watching the swans swim|
|i love pedestrian bridges :)|
|how it looks on the kapellbrücke:|
totally made of wood.
some of these old paintings are from the 17th century,
but most were destroyed in a 1993 fire.
some were restored afterwards.
we can still see the charred black remains on parts of the bridge.
|the hunt for löwendenkmal - the lion of lucerne.|
it is really not that far away from lucerne bahnhof.
|old swiss house.|
we only spent half a day in lucerne, at 2.15pm we board a train to interlaken and then lauterbrunnen.
