Settling Into Switzerland

The view of the Palace Luzern as we walked up

Yesterday was our first full day in Lucerne. We switched hotels to the Palace Luzern to be with the rest of the company. Our room is amazingly spacious and luxurious—it’s probably as big as some of the apartments we’ve stayed in. And the view of the lake is gorgeous.

After getting unpacked and checking in with the hospitality desk, we walked back into the center of the old part of town and did a little shopping. At the Manor department store I picked up some toothpaste (Elmex) and a cashmere sweater, both of which I felt were essential purchases. At the top floor of the Manor department store is a cool little cafeteria where we took a capuccino break.

That evening we had the first of our organized events, a welcome buffet dinner at the hotel. The dinner was fantastic and we had a great time talking to people who had already been traveling to Hungary, Germany, Austria, Romania and, of course, Italy. But as we settle into Switzerland, we’re quite happy to be here.
