Lucerne is a gorgeous city that lies in the north west corner of Lake Lucerne in Switzerland. My wife and I have visited on three occasions, and of those, we were lucky enough to have sunshine on one day! We have travelled quite extensively in Switzerland, because we love the country and we have always found the people to be friendly and helpful. In the main, people will switch to speaking English as soon as they know where you are from. In fact, I walked into a bar in Interlaken, hadn’t said a word, and the barmaid immediately spoke to me in English. I thought someone must have secretly tatooed ‘British’ on my forehead! Also, while waiting in a queue in a supermarket, I noticed the shop assistant speaking to other people in other languages. When it was our turn, I asked her how many languages she knew, and she said five! Obviously, that included English! I don’t think you would find many shop assistants in the UK who could speak more than English! Does that signify a problem with our education system, and is it also because we are an island? Anyway, I digress! Here are this post’s photographs of Lucerne. I hope you like them!
