Exploring Switzerland: Volketswil, Örmis

Happy Monday! I hope everyone is well and healthy and can somewhat enjoy the quarantine at home, too! We still go out regularly with our dogs so we have the ability to enjoy the warm weather that Switzerland has been showing off with this past weekend. The other day I asked some of my friends / followers (not a large group, but still!) on Instagram whether they had any tips for us regarding where to ...

Exploring Switzerland: Bremgarten (Aargau)

It's been almost 6 years since I moved back to Zurich, Switzerland. Six years, and it feels like I still do not really know the country well at all.

In the late afternoon we brought both dogs to my parents - whom thankfully were in Zurich and agreed to dog-sit Saturday ...

Happy Monday and first of February loves! A new week has started and I just finished my second workout after my tonsil surgery. I started again on Saturday and honestly - I am dying. In so much pain. Ugh. Though as they always say, there's no gain without pain - so I just hope that the pain doesn't last too long. Last week was superbly busy with meetings, lunches and dinners. The weekend wasn't all ...
