We woke up early to start another long bus trip to Lucerne, Switzerland. Side note, the breakfasts in each hotel were fine. I am not very picky, but they usually consisted of hard boiled eggs, cheeses, bread and yogurt. Sometimes meat. When choosing a Contiki, you have to understand that even the "superior" level tours are budget tours. We don't chose these tours for the accommodations or included meals, most people on the tour are choosing Contiki to travel with other like-age travelers. We chose these tours so that the majority of it is planned (transportation, city orientation, tour guides etc), and because we know they will be fun as long as you make the best of every situation. As long as you have an open mind, you will have the best time of your life! 

We had a nice rest stop today in Verona Italy, home of Juliet Capulet's "house." It is of course, not really her house, but there is balcony, and many people send letters to her house every year in order to ask for true love. There is a statue of juliet outside of her house, and I am not sure why, but it has become a tradition to rub her boob for good luck. While the boys on our tour had fun taking pictures with Juliet, others took pictures against an amazing backdrop. In the passage way going to Juliet's house, there is a wall that has thousands, if not millions of heart drawings in all different colors. People scribble their initials of their loved ones in hearts. There is also tons of gum on the wall. You are probably thinking "gross," but it looks amazing. just take a look at my picture below...If you stop in Verona, you must take a picture with this wall in the background. 

Verona also has a colosseum, so we took some nice shots outside of that. The town is cute and we enjoyed walking around even though it was raining again. If you have to use the bathroom, I suggest going inside the movie theater like we did! It might sound weird that I am giving all these bathroom suggestions, but you will thank me.
