Day trip to Lucerne and Zurich

I was in Lucerne and Zurich for a day. I was not not really lucky as it rained all day, but I got to meet three of my friends from my travels before and met two new friends on the way. Here is a picture essay from the day trip to Lucerne and Zurich.

Day Trip to Lucerne and Zurich concert train

I have never seen one of these before this. These are concert trains, they have live concerts in there with people dancing and partying. Most of us walking around were clicking pictures and trying to get a sense of things.

Day Trip to Lucerne and Zurich bar couple

We retired to sit in a bar, to give some rest to our tired legs and to escape the rain. Well, drinks are not cheap here (guess you know that already). We put all our francs on the table and just enjoyed the nice music at the bar. As we just counted the change, I looked up to see that the guy next to us had bought beers for us. It might seem like a small thing, but I would say that this experience made the whole trip worth it. We got talking and this sweet couple are running strong for 10 years. Here is to them and to the amazing people who just want to see another person smile 🙂
