Luzern, Switzerland, Day 1 - Exploring Old Town

After a wonderful couple of days in Zurich it was off to Luzern, Switzerland. 

We got there and got checked in and then went to check out the waterfront. There is a river that runs through the town and it was pretty nice 

Luzern was overall prettier than Zurich, but I preferred Zurich more. I'm not sure why. Luzern was alright, but it is not high on my list of places to go back to (even if it is picture perfect and we did lots of fun things there)

Kappelbrücke - the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe with paintings of events in Luzern's history

The downtown was really nice to wander around and spy 

We even found an ice cream cart that had vegan eis!

Lake Lucerne

Lots of places to stop and sit and have a beverage along the water

While we were sitting with a beverage these guys came by doing some capoeira!

Seriously beautiful town

Dinner at Phanat Thai - lots of noodles! Pad See Eew

And Pad Thai. Pretty tasty! I love Thai food!

After dinner it was perfect timing to sit by the water and watch the sunset

It was a really nice day spent exploring. The old town is beautiful and easily walkable. When we checked into our hotel they gave us a free bus pass, but except for the one day when we went out of town farther, we didn't need it as it is all walking distance which is nice.

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
