As you can tell, Lucerne is unfairly pretty. Bisected by a river so clean you can drink its water, astride a sparkling lake, under the shadows of Rigi and Pilatus, I spent a lot of time giggling incredulously at how charming the town was.

I might have done Zurich wrong. Usually, what you want to do when you’re traveling is to spend as little time in and around your hotel as possible. Get out to the center of town, or maybe the outskirts if you want the true, untouristed experience. Eat local food, learn where the rivers are and which way they flow, learn how to navigate public transportation.
I didn’t do that on this trip. Honestly, I must have been within three blocks of the hotel for at least 75% of my time in the city. But can you blame me? Take a look at this place!
