Last Friday night after dinner, we hopped on a train to Luzern (German) or Lucerne (French). I ran in the Swiss City Marathon, and we had a great time exploring one of Switzerland’s most beautiful cities.
Once again, we had another weekend away from home without attempting a meal at a restaurant, but that’s primarily because we had a good hostel with a well-equipped kitchen: Backpackers’ Lucerne. Even though someone had kindly recommended Hotel des Alpes as having an allergy-friendly restaurant, we didn’t get the chance to go there. We’ll save it for another trip, as we hope to visit Luzern again soon.
On Saturday night at the hostel, I made a very basic carbo-loading dinner for my family: pasta with sausage and spinach. When we travel, pasta with jarred tomato sauce is a staple meal, and it worked especially well for this trip. Our hostel didn’t have a restaurant, but there were a few food items for sale in the lobby. We packed along our own soy milk, and thankfully the hostel had a few small boxes of cereal we could safely serve our son for breakfast.
Here are a few more photos from Luzern and the rainy marathon:
Overall, another nice weekend in Switzerland, despite rainy weather. While I had a wonderful cheering squad, I think my family is glad my training schedule will be easing up over the winter months!
