Luzern, Switzerland

Luzern, Switzerland

Sep 24, 2012

We decided to explore the city a bit on the 10th, as usual with a new city. We thought about renting a paddleboat but they were insanely expensive (surprise surprise). We walked to many of the major destinations; Chapel Bridge and the Lowndenkmal (a giant slain Lion statue carved into the side of a cliff) were the most memorable. After hanging out at the hostel...

I wrote a bunch, cued up several blog posts, and played some computer games. But in the afternoon, we grabbed our umbrellas and headed out. We ate some Austrian pretzels and meandered through Old...
