Surprise marriage proposal in Mürren
Felix proposes marriage to Wendy in the Swiss Alps. He contacted me earlier asking for suggestions. He wanted a mountain view. I suggested Mürren.
The weather has a big part to play in mountain locations. Nobody wants to be in the clouds. We want to see the top of the mountains! Not have them covered in clouds. So we had to wait a couple of days for good weather.
We met at the furnicular railway in Mürren and traveled up to Allmendhubel. I was in another compartment keeping a low profile. On top, I quickly headed for the hill that overlooks the area. There were several tourists from France and Germany on the hill enjoying the sunshine. I quickly explained what was going to happen and they were happy to move to another bench. People were arriving all the time and the bench that I had placed for Felix and Wendy was very attractive. Fortunately they understood the situation.
Phew! Lots of work but very enjoyable. Afterwards we had a beer in the Allmendhubel restaurant. (Coffee and 3dl beer are nearly the same price.)
