I’m not sure I’d call this sitting still! We left Amsterdam and 8 hours later arrived in Munich! We stayed long enough to do some quick sightseeing.
The Fischbrunnen (or Fish Fountain) in Marienplatz Square is Munich’s oldest fountain. The water is really blue and inviting… it would have been nice to stay and people-watch for a bit, but… we were on the move again! Goodbye Munich.
You guessed it – I’m on yet another train, this time we’re on our way to Lucerne, which Xanthe had to explain was not a paddock of green juicy grass but a city in Switzerland that looks like it fell out of a story book from the library!
Once we had arrived, it didn’t take much to notice the big green scenery – it’s everywhere!
Here I am looking up to the mountains. Xanthe told me to prepare myself for a very big climb to the top Mt Pilatus. I told her not to worry about me, after all I came from Mt Lofty!
As always, Xanthe was right to warn me. The first part of our climb was a boat ride – this time on a lake.
This is me watching the scenery on the way to Mt Pilatus over the Vierwaldstattersee (which really just means Lake Lucerne, but it sounds good). It’s very pretty and the mountains are getting bigger as we get closer, but I’m still not worried.
