We are in Prague now. Danube Christmas cruise in a few days
We were there this time last year. Beautiful city.
Is it very ski-centric like a lot of Switzerland is? I’m not a skier and wondering if there are other things to do.
The entire city is on Lake Lucerne and it’s beautiful. I was there over spring break about a decade ago and it never once seemed like a ski-centric city. Very easy place to walk around, the city was clean and felt very safe.
Things to keep in mind:
1.) Currency is swiss francs so if you’ll have to get euros exchanged if you’re coming from another country.
2.) German is the official language and we had a more difficult time in some places finding people who could communicate in English or Latin languages.
My wife and i will be there in two weeks!
We’ve been to Geneva. Everything was stupid expensive. And Francs are basically worth the same as the Dollar.
Correct, the exchange rate isn’t painful. We had just been traveling in France and were passing through on the way to Italy. So having to swap out some currency on the way in and out of Lucerne was just something we needed to plan around.
Why do people in Orlando drive so slow?
I don’t know the answer to that, but I’ve lived in 4 states in 7 years and Oklahoma drivers are by far the worst. Mainly bc the left lane seems to mean nothing to most of them!
What states have you lived in? Because there is one obvious answer for worst drivers in America and it’s by far people from Kansas. They will get in the left lane and go 8-9 MPH under the speed limit and refuse to get over. They’re probably never in a hurry to get anywhere cause there’s nothing worth being in a hurry to see in that state.
Probably because the car in front of them is, if I had to guess.
I’ve bounced around a ton and you can find consistently horrible drivers anywhere. However, my belief is still thats theres no more dangerous situation than people who dont know how to handle ice/winter on the first bad day.
In NY so many folks just assumed they could drive like they always do “because i grew up with it and im great at driving in the winter”. I think accidents annually jump pretty significantly in the week following the first significant snowfall where im from.
In OK/TX I’ve nearly smashed into a few folks because they were going 30 on i-35 with no one around them. One time the guy doing it switched lanes like 3 times while i came up behind him and i nearly hit him and then nearly spun out because i had to swerve to avoid the idiot.
My wife and I were driving back up to Stillwater from Moore one weekend while it was snowing / icing, we came home for the weekend and didn’t know it was supposed to snow / ice but had to get back for tests. Anyway, we were basically the only car on I-35 going like 30 mph the whole way up and this Mustang comes up behind us HOT, like 65-70 mph. There’s no cars within a mile of us and it’s 3 lanes at this point, we were still in the metro. The dude waits until he’s about 10-15 feet behind us to switch lanes, my wife thought he was going to slam into us. When he finally switched lanes he lost control of the car, spun out and slammed it into the center median. My wife asked if I was going to check on him but I didn’t even slow down. His fault.
See im okay with that! Dont be in the left lane going 30, and definitely dont lane change multiple times when im trying to go around you and we’re good. Or if you can avoid the highway altogether, you’ll be going slower anyways.
Yeah we were in the right lane though. Of a 3 lane highway. With only two cars on the entire highway, us and him. Dude just Tokyo drifted the thing into the railing.
And it wasn’t like there was just snow on the ground, it was actively sleeting and the highway was a solid block of ice. It was from that horrible ice storm I believe in 2018? Maybe 2017.
For me, it’s Missouri in a landslide
Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Cali. (Currently back in Texas hopefully for long term).
Florida, lived off 30A and will say Tennessee visitors were always the absolute worst.
California the drivers weren’t bad at all and everyone went however fast everyone around them was going lol so it worked well.
Texas is fine until you get monster truck Joe that wants to drive 95 when there’s a legit back up of cars going 90 and there’s no where else to go. Also the construction in dfw is the main issue.
When I drive up to OK whether it’s 35 or 75 there’s almost always someone or a semi that’s in the passing lane barely going speed limit. Would rather fly to TUL when I go there than drive.
