Where I stayed
We had to change trains about 4 times, and then came my favorite part of the trip, ascending to over 8,000 feet to Piz Gloria via an arial cable car.
The restaurant looks just like it did in the late 60's, so it was one of the best James Bond locations that we have visited to date. Randy bought a new watch (James Bond location watch) along with a new James Bond Villian watch in Bern at the train station.
Breakfast was a very good buffet, quite pricey, but came with some champagne (which I mixed with my orange juice, instant mimosa!)
As you can see from the pictures, it was quite frosty up there, with temperatures in the 30's. After breakfast, we made our way to the gift shop, a short Piz Gloria video, then outside for more pictures. Then it was back down the mountain, and back to Bern to catch our overnight train for Prague.
Before I leave you, I have to tell you about the little town of Murren, which is just below the Piz Gloria. You have never seen such a pretty little village, Randy and I want to go back just to stay there. It was so quiet and peaceful.
