The trolleys on the Zug, heading to Zürich Flughafen, 1848 days later.
Last night in Luzern. Happy that it’s the typical cloudy weather. It makes it easier to move on. We will miss this town and the adventures, but feel it’s time to move on to other exciting opportunities. Tschuss, ciao, schön(na)!
Hotel Palace treated us to an amazing dinner on the Carl Spitteler-Quai. Every course was more delicious than the previous. We stretched the evening to its limit on the terrace, and afterwards took an after dinner swim in the lake.
It’s official, we are back to being tourists in Luzern. We are no longer residents! Time for a little celebration at one of the spots we first became familiar with. Go back to day_001 for a bit of nostalgia.
When the weather is right, this is the place to be. An after work drink at Hotel Seeburg lakeside lounge. Planning the upcoming transition….
After five years of living in Luzern, this has been, by far, one of the best days up atop Mount Pilatus. Perfectly clear with views near and far.
Armed Forces skydiving championships in Luzern. We were walking home from school this afternoon and up the quai from the Hotel National were men and women falling from the sky, all landing on the same air pillow. It turns out that there was a small circle in the center of the air pillow and a digital pad that would calculate how precise the skydiver could land on the center with one foot. All were spot on or not far off, but we did see two that missed the pillow completely. Luckily they didn’t land in the lake. Countries from all over the world were being represented, and it was a Chinese woman that hit the target perfectly when we were watching!
One of the greats, Mariano Rivera, doing an event to promote his new cologne. The line was out the door in order to meet him and get an autograph. We snuck to the front for a quick photo before being blocked out by his massive body guards.
These images don’t do it justice, but this was a fantastic meal at the MoMa restaurant.
Our first time visiting the High Line along the lower west side of Manhattan. We walked the length of it in spectacular weather. It is such an asset to the city! We ended our day with a quick visit to Donald Judd’s former home and studio in SoHo.
