from murren, we took a cable car up to the top of schilthorn (where james bond’s “on her majesty’s secret service was filmed). the ride was about 10 minutes, and the cable car operator plays the james bond theme song as the car behinds its climb.
the restaurant is full of all sorts of memorabilia, and the place mats are decorated with 007’s and silhouetted images of james bond. we ordered wine and german beer, and i ended up ordering spaghetti, when i really should have tried the schnitzel. by the time we were done eating, the clouds moved in, and most of the tourist left since the view of the alps couldn’t be seen anymore. i actually liked the clouds better–it was surreal sitting on the rocks, 9,744 ft up, while the white fog sped past. we spent over an hour hiking to the furthest point, taking photos and videos, sitting and talking, and staring over the edge.
