Day trip, central switzerland

Rigi and Felsentor (6)
Originally uploaded by nice_cup_of_tea
Last Sunday we did a quick trip of central switzerland and it was lovely! We took the train to lucerne and then caught the boat to Vitznau, before taking the mountain railway up to Felsentor, which is about halfway up Mount Rigi. We visited the Buddhist retreat house at Felsentor which was very peaceful, with some spectaculor views.

It was such a gorgeous day, cold but sunny. We got the train back down, but then walked along the lake from Vitznau to Weggis, before getting the boat and train home. We should do this more often :-) It felt so good to get some fresh mountain air and to escape from the city. And if we had stayed at home, we would both have probably spent most of the day behind our respective computers!!
