Planning our Grand Tour, I wanted to find a place in Switzerland I'd never visited . . . a place where I could relax and enjoy the views. My travel mates, who’d never been here, could venture off and explore other parts of the country as they wished.
Rick Steves Come Through with Mürren
I usually consult Frommer’s guidebooks for Europe and Lonely Planet for Asia. My son said he liked Rick Steves' TV travel shows and books, so I checked out his guide to Switzerland. I’m sure glad I did. He seems to be the only travel writer to mention Mürren, which was exactly what I was looking for. As it turned out, my son and his gal were so taken with Mürren that they stayed put, too.
