Our last day in the mountains. Breakfast was grand and our Alpine Cosplay friends sat at the table next to ours. After breakfast, we packed up our stuff and caught the train to Spiez, then on to Bern where we switched to our train to Lucerne. Sara was bent on getting Madeline a cute dress from the French kid’s store and Mike just wanted to amble around. Both got their wish, and we even ran into the missionaries along the lakeshore. We ambled, shopped, and ambled. Now part of the mass of tourists trying to milk Lucerne for all its worth. None of them knew that we were not just regular tourists, but bad ass hikers that had conquered the king’s trail! None of them would have cared much anyway as they were all busy trying to buy fancy watches, kitschy knives, and take the perfect selfie. Our goal was to eat treats as we ambled and so we ate chocolate, Luxembergli (The champagne ones are gross btw), breads, and anything that looked tasty. We also were on the hunt for that Orange/Peach Capri sun as we hadn’t found it at any Coop or Migros since the first day. We tried on clothes, looked in fun stores at unnecessary stuff and just enjoyed a really hot afternoon in Lucerne. After some rest at the hotel watching Big on the British channels, we went out and got Pizza at La Bestia (it was really good) and wandered around town a little more to work off all that pizza. We walked past a concert by the lake, and then the unthinkable happened. Sara got stung by a bee on her toe! This emergency called for ice cream, and we got some tasty Gelato to help calm the nerves. This only helped a little, so we headed back to the hotel and watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 and 2. In all, that’s a perfect way to end the day for us. Lying in bed, watching a good movie as we iced Sara’s poor toe.
