Zurich: Things to do in Zurich and Murren that aren't enormously expensive?

A few things to do in Zurich that are cheap: Go walking on the Uetliberg, the big mountain to the west. There are trails all over and the view from the top is lovely. There are tree carvings in the forest. You can make this more expensive by eating in the restaurants... See More

Top In Flight Tips?

There are great answers already in this thread but the one simple tip I use: bring a lacrosse ball. My legs and back can get tight or cramped on a plane. While I get up, walk, and stretch a long flight can be miserable. A lacrosse ball is a small, hard, rubber ball. They... See More
