A week in London

After almost a year I finally had time to go back to London, always a great pleasure. I stayed with my oldest friend Cindy and her boo, which allowed me perfect access to the city. Met up with several friends, took in the culture (most notably Greenwich and a Sherlock Holmes exhibition at the Museum […]

Spending Sunday productively

Besides a lovely phone call with Sibylle, editing of my second assignment, and going grocery shopping, I also spent today (slowly, as my internet is still dial-up) uploading some of my photos – not the ones I took here, but a number of older ones. Most notably you can see the pics I took when […]

Off for a week in France

I’m accompanying Sibylle on a visit to her grandmother’s in Troyes. However, we’re also planning on taking a couple of trips to the Paris area, maybe Versailles and Giverny (where Claude Monet’s garden is). With all the traveling back and forth I’ve been doing between Basel and Bern in the past months, it doesn’t feel […]

Lisbon 2007

Sibylle and I went for a 5-day vacation in Portugal's capital, which was much beautiful than expected. Honestly, I can recommend Lisbon to anyone, especially off-season, when it's not crowded at all. The city center has great charm, despite the obvious signs of neglect with many houses. It's just really, really pretty, and walking up […]

Como 2006

Oops, I seem to have forgotten to share the photos from my vacation with Sibylle! In June we went to Como in Northern Italy for a week, staying at a beautiful B&B in Erba (half an hour's bus ride from Como) and doing several excursions in the area. It was a great holiday – and […]

Berlin 2006

I planned on posting about the family trip to Berlin much earlier, but things (i.e., my thesis) got in the way. Now I thought it might be nice to share the photos I took before the ones from last week's trip to Northern Italy… *g* My parents went earlier and visited Dresden together with my […]
