Lucerne near the river
I got to Switzerland on March 25th.  I was first struck by its beauty on the plane ride over.  We had to circle the airport a few times because there was a snow storm and we could not land.  I could tell even from the air that there was so much to see and I couldn't wait to see it from the ground. 
We landed in Zurich, and were able to find our luggauge quickley, after we retrieved our luggauge we went to find were we needed to board a train to Lucerne.  Everyone was very nice and pointed us in the right direction.  When we got on the train and started to travel to Lucerne I couldn't believe what I was seeing.  It has been a long time since I have seen Mountains probably 10 yrs.
The clearest water I have ever seen.
  I have been living in the flat lands for most of my life.  So seeing these huge mountains was amazing to me.  Even more amazing was traveling up on, on the train ride to Engelberg. :)

I could not wait to really see Lucerne it seemed to be a beautifu, and friendly city.  I first went there with a small group of friends because we just could not wait for the day tour.  We walked all around Lucerne taking tons of pictures, and having a great time.  We did get some strange looks no doubt we were being loud and typical Americans.... we can't help it. :)  I was a lot quieter as that is just my personality.  There are many pretty sites in Lucerne.  The Lake, the old brigde, the old town square, the buildings, the churches, and of course the statue of the Loin.  I enjoyed seeing Swans for the first time, in person.  The ducks are very cute as well. 

of course I must include some pictures of this beauitful city.......  I took over a 100 pictures during the day tour... I want to remember Lucerne forever!
