Enjoy a quiet moment with me in Gimmelwald, a little traffic-free village in Switzerland surrounded by alpine splendor.

I just had to share this little moment with you from Gimmelwald — a cliff-hanging village high in the Swiss Alps. I’ve been visiting since I was a kid, and its appeal is timeless. Join me from the deck of my B&B as the sun peeks out from behind the peaks.

I’m shocked and saddened by the passing of Anthony Bourdain, an inspiration to me and so many travelers. Raw and unapologetic opinions are rare in travel media, and I always admired his brutal honesty.
