My 28hrs in Luzern, Switzerland
Weather: Nice... cooling... 1 deg
Venue: Luzern, Switzerland
Mood: A little tired but a one happy lady.. Jet lagged - while others were abt to fall asleep.. i woke up - yikes
Peak Agenda: We got into Frankfurt around 6am and drove straight to Luzern.. it was abt 400km and hubs got us here within 3hrs.. he loves driving here simply bec theres no speed limit (in Germany) and the drivers here are a lot more "consistent" compared to our drivers back home.. once u reach the swiss border... u hv to drive like a max 120km/hr which hubs followed diligently lol.. we dont want to get a ticket for no reason.. right? ahaks..
Anyway on this trip.. i noticed that Sonia ear is a lot more sensitive than bef.. she has been having prob with her ear whenever the plane takes off and lands and now that we hv to drive thru the Alps.. i noticed that she has the same probs again which reminded me of Hairi when he was young.. up to tdy.. Hairi still needs ear plugs whenever he has to take a plane ride.. i can imagine how painful it is for Sonia cos she was in tears huhu
When we got to the Radisson Blu Hotel.. our room wasnt ready.. we decided to take a quick look around Luzern since most of the shops here close at 4pm on Sat ::o)
Standing here for the 2nd time in my life brings back memories... Sonia was still a baby and i was 15kg heavier lol.. we met hubs school buddy, Kim, here for a quick coffee.. back then he was still single and looked a lot like Tom Cruise lol - err he still does actually hehe

Lucerne is the capital of the Canton of Lucerne and the capital of the district of the same name. With a population of about 76,200 people, Lucerne is the most populous city in Central Switzerland, and a nexus of transportation, telecommunications, and government of this region. The city's urban area consists of 17 cities and towns located in three different cantons with an overall population of about 250,000 people.
Due to its location on the shore of Lake Lucerne (der Vierwaldstättersee), within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps, Lucerne has long been a destination for tourists. One of the city's famous landmarks is the Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke), a wooden bridge first erected in the 14th century. - Wikipedia
