Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

September 16th


We took the trains to Luzern today. I took a couple of photos of the views (especially Lakes).  This is the only lake for which I remember the name.  It is Lugerernsee near Lugern.  That is a different place than Luzern.

We found our way to  the  Lion Hostel and put our suitcases in the room with the help of the young girls at the desk. Then we took a walk around Luzern today and took a few of photos around town. I am so overwhelmed with the traffic and being in a city.  I sure miss the mountains.

We walked on both the oldest wooden bridge in Luzern and on the chapel bridge.

Here is Shirley with Chapel Bridge in the background.

We also walked along the city wall.

This is the oldest wooden bridge in Luzern.

We took a couple of photos of the Lake Luzern which is also called Vierwaldstattersee.

The weather really started to get cloudy so we just checked out where the dock is for the boat we want to board to Rigi tomorrow morning and then went out to eat at Rothaus.  There was no inside seating because of a party so we sat outside and had a delicious chicken dinner and salad.  The rains began to absolutely pour down so we were lucky that we were undercover during dinner.

We just relaxed at the hostel tonight while it rained outside but are a but cold because the heat which is supposed to turn on when the temperature drops to 10° C has not on and it is 9° C as I post this journal.  We are hoping for decent weather in the morning.

Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart. She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all. She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.

  1. For me, Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and your photos have brought up so many wonderful memories of my trips there. If you’re able to visit it, the “Lion of Lucerne”, carved out of a rock wall, always brings tears to my eyes; it’s a beautiful memorial to the Swiss soldiers who were killed while defending the French royal family in Paris during the French Revolution. I’m hoping for decent weather for you also for the remainder of your time there! Have fun.
