Lucerne with Contiki

After six days in Italy, it was time to move on and discover a new country. We were headed to Switzerland and while I was unsure what to expect from the next couple of days, I was looking forward to relaxing in the countryside. After spending the first part of our journey watching The Lion King – Julia and I singing along the entire time – the scenery suddenly turned pretty spectacular.Switzerland lakeFor the next few hours, I couldn’t keep my eyes away from the window. I remember feeling so utterly overwhelmed at how beautiful the countryside was that I just couldn’t stop smiling and my eyes genuinely welled up at one point. In fact, I was kinda overemotional from this point out now that it was so close to the end of our trip!Switzerland Contiki coachSwitzerland coach viewWe stopped in the stunning town of Lucerne with Contiki Tony sending us off on a mission to find the Lion of Lucerne.

Instead I spent a couple of minutes before bed outside by the river, looking up to the stars and the waterfall in front of me. Wow.
