Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions: Luzern for Fun and Profit

 

For a while, Burt lived in the Swiss city of Lucerne. He describes it as a “home on the range,” but the range he’s referring to is the Alps Mountain Range of central Europe. The city sits at the end of a great lake surrounded by snow-covered mountains and features a number of cultural attractions including the Rosengart Museum.

 

NATURE
Wild France

 

For most, a trip to France includes fine food, local wines, beautiful cities and celebrated culture of all kinds. This is a trip of a different sort altogether, featuring the unexpected flora and fauna of the country, both great and small. Journeying from the Pyrenees to the Alps, all around the mainland and south to Corsica, it is the story of the wild side of France. Breathtaking photography reveals wolves, wild boar and even bears living among France’s many mountains, valleys and forests.
