Gnomes Gone Fishing

Last bits of Murren

View The Alps Bucket Trip on sstalpo's travel map.

As I am writing this.. in the light of the setting sun over Lake Geneva, outside on our hotel room's veranda... I realized I better wrap up Murren or I will never catch up! So this page are the little bits left of Murren and will do one page on our one day adventure in Lauterburren. Which included our most 'character' filled hotel we stayed at yet.

Murren - Bits and Pieces

Just about everyone has amazing gardens in Murren - which included Gnomes!! So many vegetables and flowers! All kinds of flowers.. roses, sunflowers.. and the healthy kale and cabbage plants. I came across this one garden which make me smile. Look close.. there are more than one Gnome -- and the two in front are FISHING! I love when people have wimsy :)

You know how there are deep red flowers in all the Chalet window boxes? I discovered that they are! Geraniums! Now I want some for my garden. Even close up the red is very intense and like velvet.

Sir Arnold Lunn - I walked by this memorial and had to share it. I also looked up his Wiki Page! Very cool
The memorial reads --
"It was here in Mürren that Arnold Lunn set the first slalom in 1922 and organised the first world championship in downhill and slalom racing in 1931."

Just some other views around the village

I went to Murren because I am a huge James Bond fan and wanted to visit Piz Gloria. But I also fell in love with Murren while there.
