The ol’ alma mater is still glowing.

This week, one of my best friends came to visit the city. I got to walk him around and do all the fun touristy things I never think of doing on normal days.

If you can guess what movie that line’s from, I think we’d be friends in real life.
Like I mentioned earlier, we’ve been in (gorgeous, sunny, delightful, cheese-filled) Switzerland this week. We spent a couple of days in Zurich, trained over to Lucerne yesterday, and plan to go to Mürren tomorrow. So, no My Paris post today, but here’s some love from my iPhone of what this country’s looked like so far.
We stayed at the same hotel as the last time we were in Zurich, which meant I got to eat breakfast and hang out and read in this slick library bar again. It used to be a brewery so I drank accordingly.
Speaking of breakfast: is there anything better than a fresh, locally sourced, well-stocked hotel breakfast?
Lucerne is, for a lack of a better word, picturesque. It’s a small city tucked into the folds of hills and mountains with a river and a lake and well-preserved medieval architecture.
