Switzerland, Switzerland, Switzerland…the land of fresh milk and fresh air. We are now in day two of our Switzerland adventure and we find ourselves in the small mountain town of Murren. Like I mentioned in the previous post, it took a whole gondola ride to reach this tiny town and overlooks the mountains (the monk, the princess and the ogre). We planned on having a relaxing day due my pulled calf muscle. We wanted me rejuvenated and able to hike down Shilthorn the next day.
Naturally because we’re Crissingers we started off with an amazing breakfast. It was a truly fantastic European breakfast experience. Blumental hands-down had the best breakfast out of any of the hotels on our honeymoon.
With our bellies filled, it was time to start the day. We headed down to the local bike shop and were distraught to find that they did not have a bike that fit me. Wondering what we were going to do, the employee mentioned they might have some returned bikes in the town below. Hoping for the best Sam and I took a ride down the gondola and discovered there was a bike that fit my size that had been returned. What luck!
I’m not a poet and not very good at describing extraordinary beauty, so here is some scenic shots from our bike day.
Biking and visiting the Falls were the main event of Day 2, so we headed back to Lauterbrunnen for some lunch! Along the way we found a couple of fresh water springs and picturesque places for photo ops.
At last, when we got back to the hotel it was time for bed and a perfect time for a bottle of wine. Cheers!
