World Trip 2006: Day 69 – Lucerne, Switzerland

We had a short journey to Lucerne today were myself, Luke and two other Australian girls (Jess & Shannon) decided to explore together for the next 2 days.   The hotel didn’t let us check into 3 pm so we went down to the Central Train station and tourist information. Unfortunately this was a public holiday so most things were closed however we did get to do a very good walking tour (I was the guide with the insights today!).   The most moving monument here was the Lion of Lucerne with is to remember over 600 Swiss who died defending a castle.   The lion is also dying which is unusual for a national monument. As all 4 of us were very short on money we spent the night searching for a cheap eat, and finally found a very dark alley which sold kebabs, at one stage the questions was asked about free water (I’m not kidding), yes the backpackers were in town.
