Story behind the photo - Lucerne
This is a photograph of the Chapel Bridge in Lucerne. It is the oldest covered wooden bridge in Europe, and spans the river in Lucerne. Parts of the bridge were destroyed in the 1990's following a fire. We had one day to spend in Lucerne, after visiting Mt Pilatus earlier in the day, we had free time to explore the city. Some of the tour group did an optional lunch, a couple of friends and I walked across the bridge while we were exploring the city, on our way to climb part of the city walls.
(and later get caught in a massive heavy hailstorm, but that's another story.....)
