Road Trip: Furtwangen and Colmar  Posted on 07/30/2014
Last week, I took a bit of an impromptu mini-road trip from Zurich to Zweibrucken, Germany, and back. Scott was in Germany for work, so I jumped at the opportunity to overnight away from home. On the way there, I...

The Wanderweg  Posted on 05/04/2014
We took a lovely hike today, starting with a train and bus ride to Unterägeri and ending in Walchwil. Given low clouds and how early we are in the season, we didn’t want to go too high in altitude. But the beauty of hiking in...

Sechseläuten and the Böögg  Posted on 04/28/2014
Today is grey, cold and rainy here. It is also Sechseläuten, a Zurich festival that has welcomed summer for the last few centuries, and the day when a snowman will predict the summer weather–a bit like the famous...
