Switzerland Day 1~ Murren
It was a LOONNNGGGG day for me. After flying for around 13 hours and working for over 15 hours, I headed straight to meet Kate after a shower.
We first visited Lucerne (one hour away from Zurich by train), walked around the city and its famous Chapel Bridge (pictures will be posted later on), had a light lunch and then took the train and a cable car to Murren (around 2hours from Lucerne).At 1,624m (5,327 ft.), Mürren is the highest year-round inhabited village in the Bernese Oberland.
Mürren has a population of just 450, but has 2,000 hotel beds. Tourism is popular through the summer and winter; the village features a view of the three towering mountains: Eiger
, and Jungfrau
It was exhausting, and the jet lag didn't help either. However, looking at those gorgeous panorama, one can forget the tired body and simply enjoy its beauty.
I am lucky! I am seriously lucky. My initial plan was merely to visit Lucerne. Then Kate told me why not we go to Lucerne, then to their mountain house *which is at Murren*
and then pay Interlaken a visit on our way back the next day.
I had sooooo much FUN.... My last flight was amazing and unforgettable!
Beware!! It is slippery... *sigh Picture session after our breakfast!!
I had to slowly crawl up....
Dan and Kate.
Kate's knee was injured when she ski-ed the week before.
So yeah... skiing is not for the faint-hearted *I mean me...myself...and I
Two clowns were found at Murren.... Thankfully it was a bit warmer on the second day coz of the sun.... *relieved Can you not fall in love with Murren?? Kate snow-sun-tanning!! Cool fire-hydrant heh?? Where to go next??
And this is the cosy house of Dan and Kate where I spent my night.Love it!! whoaaaaa
