Three weeks of this new term have passed and until now I can say it has been the time for going around and visiting.
Last week I went to a city long missed, called Neuchatel. I went with a friend who had an interview for her future internship, hopefully. I told her that I was there before a few years ago and I would love to go back to revive some memories.
We took the train at Luzern at 12 and we arrived in 2 hours. We went directly to the hotel she was supposed to have the interview and we arrived at a magnificent hotel at the border of the lake.
While she was on her business I sat at the hotel’s bar, where guess what happened! The man who served me was Romanian! Isn’t that amazing? He told me that he have been living in Switzerland for 19 years, which gave me hope that if he could do it, I will be able to do the same at some point: to stay here, in Switzerland.
The moment we finished there, we had 3 more hours to spend until we had our train back. So, we decided to go through the old town. In our visit we remarked some great chocolate sculptures, a painted paved alley, which was amazingly colored, and relaxed friendly people who seemed to truly enjoy their lives.
At some point, I decided to show my friend the Neuchatel Castle from where I remembered it was an amazing panorama. Even though she complained a little bit at the beginning because we had to climb lots of stairs, the moment we got on top she was speechless. The view was beautiful and deserved to be taken pictures of. So what do you think happened? We took tons of photos like these:
Then we decided to go back to the train station and we got back in Luzern around 7.10 and somehow we got in time for the school dinner which was closing at 7.30.
That day was an amazing day and long-lasting memory I am glad I get to share with you!I would like to hear some of yours new free-time activities. So if anything pops to mind, send me an e-mail! 😉
