Swiss Roots

Joseph joins his producer and wife, Julie, on her search for her Swiss roots in and around Lucerne, Switzerland. Their hunt takes Travelscope atop Mount Pilatus where they scale the local peaks, try their hand at cheese making and then travel across Lake Lucerne to historic alp horn and handoergeli (Swiss accordion) shops in the village of Schwyz. In Ebikon and Koelliken Julie takes a walk in her grandparents' footsteps and shares a glass of local wine and a pot of fondue with her long-lost and newly-met Swiss relatives.
