Anyways... we arrived in Lucerne and were let loose to shop and wander around for a while
Once we arrived at our hotel, there was all of about 10 minutes before its started to rain... and rain... and rain... for the rest of our stay in Switzerland, it rained, a lot! But, the town was absolutely surrounded by mountains, the biggest of which was Mount Titlis, and we had absolutely amazing views 360 degrees around us. Plus, our hotel room had a little balcony on which we could sit and take it all in... it was lovely!! We had the rest of the afternoon to ourselves to wander around, which we did! There really wasnt much to do, but it was nice to just take it easy for a change. That night we had dinner with our group and then everyone chatted over a few drinks. We went back to hang out in our hotel rooms with some other tour group members and later that evening we ventured over to the only nightclub in the town..
The next morning we got up and joined our tour group for a trip up to the top of Mount Titlis... in the rain of course!! We took, in total, 3 gondola rides up to the top, including one rotating gondola which is supposed to be amazing to appreciate the views... however, the rain made for foggy conditions and there was little we were able to see. Once we got to the top, Britt, Derek (a fellow traveller) and I ran straight for the snow. Played around a little, and then found a little hill where we perched ourselves on and ambushed any other Contiki group members that came along with snowballs. It reminded me of home a little... haha. Being that we had already been wet from the rain on the way up, we didnt last long before we were too cold to stay outside in the snow so we went back inside for a quick walk around the Glacier cave there... nothing to spectacular... then had a quick lunch and headed back down the mountain for hot showers and dry clothes. We pretty much lazed around for the rest of the day, which was wonderful!! And of course, it was still raining!!
