A Decent Proposal!

Few things compare to popping the top off a favorite Swiss beverage in the heart of the region that brewed it. (Notice the label on this Appenzeller beer and compare it to the background).

But one of our recent clients took things a step further. Not only did he pop the top, but he popped the Big Question as well.

We would like to extend our congratulatory remarks to Brian Jensen and Marie Malinowski who recently engaged to be married in the one of the most beautiful and undiscovered corners of Switzerland, Appenzell. Nice choice Brian!

Here’s some rock.

This is a shot of the happy couple right after Brian proposed.

Brian picked the Schäfler hut to propose, but I would bet money that he could have popped the question anywhere in Appenzell and Marie would have said yes.

Here’s a hint to all the potential fiancés out there. Switzerland, chocolate, beautiful mountains, alpine flowers, wine, cheese. Why not set yourself up for success?

We also enjoyed our own success. Marie sent us a note following their tour and said this about their experience. “This is by far the best vacation of hiking/climbing we’ve ever done! All went great and your maps were fabulous. Thanks for arranging everything.”

I can’t help but wonder though. Did Marie’s agreement to marry Brian lead to the beer, or was it the other way around? 😉

Congrats to the both of you.
