Lake Como: November 2016

Lake Como

And we’re finally at the last post of Europe 2016 (here are one and two). As I mentioned, we took a train to Lake Como for two nights in the beginning of our trip (after spending one night in Zurich). Lake Como was at the top of my travel wish list for years…my parents and I took a train through when I was younger and ever since then, I’ve been desperate to make it back for an actual stay.

Lucerne: November 2016


I shared a recap of our time in Zurich the other day and now we’re heading to Lucerne, a little city located on–predictably–Lake Lucerne! It’s known for it’s medieval architecture and the iconic Kapellbrücke “Chapel” Bridge that goes over the point where the lake meets the River Reuss. Having been there twice now, I can confidently say that it’s one of my favorite European cities. The Swiss ones tend to fill a lot of the spots on that list!

Zurich: November 2016

Zurich, Switzerland

Here I am with an embarrassingly overdue post! You may remember J and I went to Switzerland and Lake Como back in November. Well, I’m finally done going through photos and am ready to share what we did! Trip coverage will be split into three different posts: Zurich, Lucerne, and Lake Como. Yay!

We booked our flights back in June and got a great deal on American (<$500 RT), but due to a slight flight change on the airline’s part, ended up flying British Airways through codeshare. This was great–I’d take BA over American any day! The flight was Dulles to Zurich via Heathrow, and we got to fly in an A380 on our way there.
