Luzern

Traveled to Luzern today. Went up Mt Pilatus. Gondola took about 40 min to get to top. Once on top the girls climbed up to summit. We were in the clouds so the view was just white. We then took the Cograilway down the other side of the mountain. Next, we took a boat taxi across the Luzern Lake, beautiful. We then were able to shop. The prices were so high that we didnt buy much. We ended our day w dinner & a traditional folklore show.

Home tomorrow!

Our Chalet

Today we went to Our Chalet wow was it beautiful! The pictures just don't do the views justice. Then we went for a short hike around a near by waterfall. Thank you Tibor (our bus driver) for driving us to and from the starting point other wise we wouldn't have been able to see this area! The girls said this was the best thing we have done yet.

Switzerland

We left Paris this morning via bus driven by Tibor from Hungary. We crossed the border with no issues and no passport inspection! We could see mountains and much farming area, corn, cabbage, lots of other veggies and loads of sunflowers!! You have to see the picture to believe it! We arrive around 7 pm to Adleboden. It's been a long bus ride but is sure is pretty.

We left London at 5:30 and took the Eurostar to Paris. Got into Paris at 11 am and took a bus to Cachan to our hotel. We dropped off our luggage and took the RER to the Louvre, which was magnificent!!! We saw the Mona Lisa, Napoleons apartment and wonderful art work. Dinner was at Flam and we had flam with either ham and onion or mushrooms, kind of like flat bread pizza. Apple or chocolate flam for dessert was awesome! After dinner we went to the Eiffel tower and rode the lift to the second level. What a view!!! Took lots of pictures the shopped a bit at the Festival of Paris and got souvenirs. Got back to the hotel at 11, VERY tired!

Beautiful sunrise on the plane, slept a little on the plane and landed in Heathrow at 8:40. Everyone was impressed by driving on the 'wrong' side of the road!! Saw Leaden Hall market and had first tube ride! Saw Big Ben , Westminster, Trafalger Square and the girls sat on the lion. Went to Mothers Mash for bangers and mash for dinner, shower and bed!!! Look forward to tomorrow!
