Traditional, yet modern. Buzzing with activity, but filled with peaceful pockets of relaxation. Where the Kloster Dhammapala (a serene Buddhist monastery) huddles in the shadow of the Klettersteig (a heart-pumping level-4 climbing path).

About: Beth Herrmann
Beth is a midwestern pastor’s wife who moonlights as a Backroads Trip Leader. She has worked in over a dozen regions in Europe, North and Latin America. After two years as Trip Expert in Switzerland, she took on the positions of Regional Systems Specialist and Trip Expert in Vermont in order to find a personal maple syrup provider and quote lines from “White Christmas” as often as possible. Winters are spent hibernating in Watertown, WI where her husband, Noah, teaches religion at a boarding high school. She refuses to go outside once the thermometer hits -10 F° but instead spends her time practicing "My Heart Will Go On" on tin whistle, drinking really strong Irish breakfast tea, dreaming of long hikes in the mountains and attempting to find worthy opponents in Bananagrams.

I find this rather humorous. In place of gregarious co-leaders, my building-mates are 120 teenage boys.Read more
