A Day in Lucerne, Switzerland

Skirt: Rachel Roy, Top Zara, Shoes: Dolce Vita

I realize that you are all probably sick of my travel posts.  But, this past month was a major highlight of my entire life.  So, for me, it wouldn't feel right if I didn't share all of it on my blog.  As my blog is my diary.  So, I hope you'll bear with me as I continue to share pictures of the places I've seen and enjoyed so much.  So with that said....

We took a plane from Paris to Zurich, Switzerland.  Rented a car and drove directly to Weggis, where we stayed over night.  Weggis is a beautiful place, right on the Pristine lake of Lake Lucerne.  Lake Lucerne is absolutely gorgeous.  The water is the perfect shade of blue, there are swans swimming so gracefully, and the grassy green mountains serve as the perfect back drop.   After a night in Weggis, we drove a few miles to stay in the city of Lucerne.  Where Weggis is a very quaint little village in the coutry, Lucerne is a big city, with shopping and restaurants and lots of people.  I found Lucerne to be out of a fairy tale, with the old Chapel Bridge built in the 1300's, and the beautiful buildings surrounding the lake.  It was just so dang pretty.  We spent the day walking around.  I took a gazillion pictures.  There was a festival going on, so we made sure to soak up some of the culture, dined in a German restaurant, fed the swans, and had just the best day.  I love Lucerne, and would definitely make another trip in the future to this fairy tale place.

I visited Lucerne a few years ago, and it is absolutely stunning. I loved the beautiful flower-lined bridge. I was so excited to recognize it when I saw it on TV recently. Beautiful pictures and thanks for letting me live vicariously through your travels!

Didn't you love Switzerland?? I spent a week there (not in Luzerne, but on Lake Geneva lear Lausanne and Montreux) back in 2009 and it was the most beautiful place I've ever been. It was seriously like living in a fairy tale for a week!
