From Milan we headed to Switzerland. We had left the warm weather in southern Italy, and now were faced with the much cooler temperatures in the high elevations of the Swiss Alps.
On the tour, we were allowed one suitcase as well as one carry on bag. In these two bags, we had to pack for whatever weather we might encounter as we traveled the European continent.
We went shopping in Lucerne. I may have bought a Swiss Army Knife. Some people may have bought cuckoo clocks and watches. After Lucerne, we traveled to Mt. Pilatus where we went up the mountain in a cog wheeled railroad.
We also visited Rhine Falls in Switzerland.
Our last stop in Switzerland was Einsiedeln. According to Google, “Einsiedeln” means “A small town of Switzerland, in the canton of Schwytz.” And that is how I remember it. A small town in the country. There I greatly enjoyed the country, nature and bike riding. It’s kind of funny, these are the very same things I so greatly enjoy now.
One of my most favorite photos:
Next up: France! Which, my dear readers, will be the last post in this Europe 1979 series.
