CHEESE COUNT: fondue 3 / raclette 1
Today we went up to Mt Titlis (and I had to endure endless stupid jokes from my husband).
Mt Titlis is famous for it’s rotating cable car, I’ve always wondered about this and it turns out it’s very simple: a normal cable car that’s round instead of square with a rotating “disk” in the floor like in a revolving restaurant. It’s neat, but so simple it’s almost curious as to why there aren’t as many out there!
As you may have surmised from this picture, the weather was not ideal. We had what I call “peek-a-boo” views of the peaks. Gorgeous but fleeting… and did it EVER change fast!! From a white wall of nothing to spectacular views back to nothingness in less than a minute. You had to act fast if you saw a vista you liked!
And it was COLD up there too!! (3000m / 10000ft) Below 0°C with the wind. We brought hats and gloves and scarves but I think psychologically my body can’t deal with those temps in September!
We had lunch and said to ourselves we’d see what the sky and views were like after – there is a Cliff Walk that tempted us, but the spotty views + crazy cold meant that we just headed back down.
We spent the rest of the afternoon in Lucerne (got there around 3), and just did a lot of aimless wandering and enjoying the city. We’ve already done the major touristy things in Lucerne on previous visits so we took it easy this time.
One of my favourite pastimes is doing jigsaw puzzles of our vacation pictures (check out the program: brainbreaker), I am particularly looking forward to this one:
We settled on Italian for supper, you’ve probably heard me say before how I like eating by the water so this seemed extra nice…. even if we were starting to get a little testy due to fatigue.
This is one of my favourite pictures from the day; I love the reflection in the water!
Great day! Goodnight!
