Switzerland was my next stop after visiting Italy. In two short days I was able to see quintessential Switzerland: chocolate, cheese, army knives, and mountain etched landscapes.

I stopped in Lucerne which is a charming place, with majestic, snow-capped mountains and stunning lakes. It’s located in the German-speaking portion of the country, and is the most populous city in Central Switzerland. Lucerne is within close proximity of Mount Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps.

Lucerne is also home to the Chapel Bridge, which is the world’s oldest surviving truss bridge and Europe’s oldest wooden covered bridge. Visiting this bridge was an amazing experience. I wonder what history this bridge has seen and what footprints have been made there.
