So tomato handbag and I decided to visit the epicentre of Bernese Man-Land - the 360° revolving restaurant on top of the Schiltorn. The Schiltorn is 2930 m high and was used in the James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."
Obviously the first thing one must do is ascend the Schiltorn from Mürren via two cable cars. (Of course there is the climbing option too!!) The cable cars give beautiful views over the mountains for everyone except those who are genetically blessed with being the exact same height as the cable bar.
Once at the top there are a myriad of activites for a gal and her tomato handbag to do including:
|Posing like Jame Bond|| |
|Posing with other James Bond posers|
|Regarding the view from the revolving restaurant|
|Did I mention posing Like James Bond?|
|Oh and posing like JB's girlfriend too!|
tomato handbag announced her desire to be the first fruit-shaped handbag ever to descend the Schiltorn on foot. After a few minutes pondering whether in fact this was a good idea ( as most other climbers seemed to be more sensibly attired with backpacks and walking sticks) we took to the mountain. I mean who am I to deny a handbag her dream!
I believe the descent may have been a little easier on the tomato than my knees.
|But tomato handbag's safety was of course paramount!|
And also to do some stone laying
And general appreciation of the rarver spectacular views.
