ALJ's European globetrotters continued their adventures today, spending the morning atop one of the Alps highest peaks, followed by an afternoon in stunningly beautiful Lucerne.
Travellers thoroughly enjoyed their second day in Switzerland. It is a unique and amazing locale. In the morning about half of the group enjoyed a trek to a mountaintop at 10,000 feet above sea level. "We were most impressed with the glacier cave and Ice Walk Bridge," said Mr. Fosco, one of the chaperones. The temperatures all day were excellent, even on the mountain where it was considerably colder at 40 than town which was at 60. The adventure included several lift rides to the top, an elevated hanging bridge and a cave dug into the glacier.
Later they traveled to the beautiful city of Lucerne, where they marveled at the architecture. "There is nothing quite like walking on a bridge originally constructed in the 15th century," said Mr. Reyes, the organizer of the annual excursions.
Tomorrow the group will spend the day traveling to Italy, but visiting a number of picturesque towns. Their first stop will be Lugano Switzerland, known as the Swiss Lakes region, where they will have time to enjoy lunch by the lake and a bit of free time. Later they will stop again in one of the Italian Lakes and enjoy a rest. Watch for more daily reports from Italy tomorrow.
