Luzern – 15

Our ferry captain was somewhere up there. I never thought I’d be a boat-person, but that balmy afternoon of the 25th of April on Lake Lucerne converted me. πŸ˜€ Advertisements

I know I’m tooting my own horn, but isn’t that a picture-postcard view? πŸ™‚

Like I said before, a palace. On an island. In a lake. In Switzerland. It’s only July but I know what stocking-stuffer I want! πŸ˜€

A palace. On an island. On a lake. In Switzerland. Seriously, is there another life worth living? πŸ˜€ (I know it got turned into a hotel, but still…)

Lake Luzern was surprisingly shallow for quite some distance. Mountain lakes, formed in hollows gouged by ancient glaciers go deep very fast as you move in from the shore, but a couple of hundred metres from the pier, the lake-bed was still clearly visible.

Spotted as I dashed to board the ferry, the Devnagari (Hindi, the commonest used language in India) sign was a surprise; the first such I came across in Switzerland. I didn’t have the heart to point out that instead of “Golden round trip” it read, “Golden round tirpey”. πŸ˜€
