Day 1 of Luzern

(well the first full one!) We started gently with the train to Sarnen and a walk to Fluëli-Ranft via the highest wooden bridge in Europe - I didn't find it terribly vertigo inducing as the walking notes threatened. As you see we had a bit of rain that day - started just when we'd arrived in Fluëli-Ranft. The village is a centre of Roman Catholic pilgrimage it being the home of Brother Klaus (Nicholas of Flüe). I will remember the eagles from that day one swooping only around 30m from the balcony of our room! Also eating dinner watching the sun through the clouds lighting up and then dimming the valleys opposite.
