Murren to Strasbourg

September 9, 2014 – Today was our final morning in Switzerland.  We loved the mountains, food, and how walkable and uncrowded our town was.  After breakfast we headed into town to the grocery store for some sandwich supplies (bread, cheese, meat), juice and chocolate for a picnic lunch later in the day.  Then we grabbed…
