On one weekend, we decided to rent a car to visit a city called Luzern.  We walked around the cute storybook town and its surrounding wall while shopping for accessories for our Steampunk costumes.  We also happened to be there during an air-show and boat race, so the town was just buzzing with people, despite the gloomy weather!

Luzern was also hosting a local winter festival where we got to sample some authentic raclette!!  Here, they put a special blend of spices on top of the cheese which enhance the flavour :)  Unfortunately the experience somewhat destroyed our previous love for home-raclette as the real thing was SO much better!
