"ON MY WAY " through SWITZERLAND.

Breaking a long journey. Lugano, Lucerne, Fribourg.

This "on my way" Is travelling through Switzerland, on returning from a holiday
on Malta. . I stayed one night in Lugano, one night in Lucerne , also one night Fribourg. I
had been to Lugano and Lucerne before, so this time was just refreshing places. Fribourg , this was first time visit I found it a very nice place , with the old town high above the river Sarine. In Lugano the weather was rainy , with low cloud over the lake. There are small mountains at each end of the bay, -Montre Bre and Montre San Salvatore. I say small mountains compared to the rest of the Alps mountains. Lugano is a lakeside town in the Canton of Ticina. --- I travelled by Swiss train S.B.B. ,C.F.F. F.F.S. between Lugano via Lucerne and Fribourg. --Lucerne is the capitol of Canton Lucerne, on Lake Lucerne. - The Kappelbrucke or wooden Chapel bridge spans the lake, it was first erected in the 14th century. A fire damaged it in resent years , now restored. -- The bus station is at the front of the rail station near the lake. -- ---- Train Lugano to Lucerne 1 hour 39 minutes. --- Train Lucerne to Fribourg 1 hour 25 minutes.
