16: Lion Monument 1820 | Church of St. Leodegar 1633 | Sept. 3rd: We landed in Zurich ontime and made it to Lucerne around lunch. We checked into the Etap Hotel and found the rooms very small but at least clean. We decided to do a walking tour of the city and started at Lake Lucerne. We ate lunch at the beach area where lots of locals were swimming and sunbathing. We went walking through Old Town and say the Chapel Bridge, Old Town Hall and the Lion Monument. The town was really pretty and the weather perfect. The main downfall was everything to do and eat was so expensive! We ended up eating from a vendor for dinner as we weren't feeling very good and crashed in our hotel room before 9pm.

18: Sept 4th: Today we woke up to clouds but decided to do our mountain excursion anyways. We got on the 8:45 ferry on Lake Lucerne to Alpenstad to catch the World's Steepest Cable Car up to Mt. Pilatus. The cable car had great views, however the top 50 feet of the mountain was covered in clouds! We did some short walks and even stumbled across the International Alpenhorn Conference. We got to see about 100 people playing their Alpenhorns, it was really neat! We then split a schnitzel for 36 franc (WOW, almost $50) up top before we headed down the other side of Mt. Pilatus on gondolas back to Lucerne. We decided to do some shopping in Lucerne and found most the stores were closed because it was Sunday. We decided to eat some pizzas at an Italian restaurant and ended up walking back to our hotel in the pouring rain. | Derek at the top of Mt. Pilatus | Alpenhorn Festival | View of Lake Lucerne

19: Sept 5th: Today we took an hour train to Zurich to spend the day there before our nighttrain to Prague. We did a walking tour of Old Town seeing the Grossmunster, Fraumunster, Wasser Kirche and waterfront. We took a ferry cruise of Lake Zurich, unfortunately it got cloudy by the end. Today was also the day I lost the key to our luggage locker but luckily we got our bags before our train and ate dinner on the dinner car of the train. | Derek next to Lake Zurich | Limmat River that runs through the middle of Zurich | Grossmunster

We took the tram up to Prague Castle and got the Long Visit ticket so we could see everything if we wanted to. Our favorite part was St. Vitus Cathedral but St Wenceslaus' Chapel was closed. From there we walked the Royal Garden and got lost walking to Charles Bridge. While lost we came across a gorgeous panorama of Prague and took a ton of photos. We walked through Prague and ate dinner at U Fleku where we both had awesome goulash!

26: Maisel Synagogue 1590 | Spanish Syangogue 1868 | THe Loreta | Today we visited the Jewish Quarter. We purchased an all inclusive pass but unfortunately none of the Synagogues allowed interior photos. The first was the Pinkas, where all the walls are covered by the names of Prague's Jewish people who were killed in the Holocaust. Next we went through the Jewish cemetery where they weren’t allowed to be buried outside the walks, so in some places the bodies are 12 deep. Next we visited the Old-New Synagogue which is the oldest still operating Synagogue in Europe. Later we headed to Old Town were we went to the Loreta. After, we went up the tower in Old Town Square. We ended the day with dinner at U Vejvodu. | The Loreta, a Baroque Pilgrimage site 1626

28: September 9th | Sedlec Ossuary Kutna Hora, Czech Republic 50,000 bones from the Black Death

29: Today was our last day in Prague ,and we decided to train an hour to Kutna Hora to see their bone church. There are over 50,000 bones from people who died from the plague that they decorated the church with. It was very cool but kind of creepy. They even had a chandelier made with every bone in the body. We then took a shuttle to the St. Barbara Cathedral on the hill above the town. We toured that and then walked through Old Town back to the train station. We had to make it back to Prague for the 5:40pm train to Vienna. We made it in time and checked into our hotel in Vienna. | St Barbara Cathedral Gothic Cathedral started in 1388 and finished in 1905
