On Saturday we travelled by TGV from Paris to Basel (on the border of France, Germany and Switzerland) and transferred to an Inter-regio Swiss train for the journey through to Lucerne. We missed the first connection, turned the wrong way off the first platform and by the time we sorted it out the train was just pulling out (we only had about 3 min …

After our short stop in Liechtenstein we drove on to the city of Lucerne. We checked into the Hotel Alpha parked the car and relaxed for a few minutes before heading into town for a pint. The hotel was clean and great and even had a small balcony. The pub we were planning on going to was on the other side of the Reuss River so it gave us a great …

A beautiful day for a drive

We left Geneva on a beautiful sunny day. Our route was via Chamonix Mount Blanc and Martigny.
What a drive! The scenery is stunning. The roads were icy and covered in snow as we climbed higher. Travelling without chains, we drove at a slow pace. Which was great as it gave us time to absorb to fantastic views. The tempurature dropped down to minus 7C.



Shopping, shopping, shopping!

Well we could definitely tell the difference when we crossed the boarder from Italy in to Switzerland! Seems rediculous that countries so close could have such obvious differences but in Switzerlansd there was an instant impresion of orderliness and cleanliness. Even the weeds on the edges of the neatly ploughed fields seemed to grow just where …

    Ok - but very noisy

    When we checked in the hotel seemed to be on a quiet street. However just across the road is an area where local teens congregate at night - on Saturaday night they were yelling and screaming until about 4am. The rooms are hot and stuffy - no A/C or fans so we needed to keep window open - so no sleep for us.Tried to get a room change but although the hotel acknowledged the problem they wouldn't do anything about it. Sunday afternoon was the same (we were trying to catch a nap after the night before) Sunday night was a lot better.

    Other than that, good location (10 min walk to the station and town centre) and a good price for Lucerne. But if you want a gaurenteed sleep you may want to try somewhere else....
