Baby Crumpet does Swiss Alps

Baby Crumpet took us to visit the Swiss Alps - specifically the town of Murren - which is only accessible by cable & sits on a dramatic cliff and faces the three biggest peaks in Europe - Eiger, Monch & Jungfrau (Ogre, Monk & Maiden). Murren sits in the Bernese Oberland region (home to Bernese mountain dog) - full of wonderfully named towns such as Grimmelwald, Schilthorn and Wegen.

Yes we ran into many cows (with cowbells) blocking the road (see photo). Yes we ate a lot of cheese fondue (photo). Yes Crumpet played at a playground 13,000 feet high (photo). Yes we saw fields of flowers (Alpine meadow). Yes we saw Alpine cottages. Yes we sang songs (but did not know how to yodel).

The view is spectacular, the food is rich (cheese & meat). Walking around the village it is easy to forget there is another world out there. Better have another cheese fondue.
