  • Vienna and Paris

    First days of November and December caught us on the road outside of Switzerland; in November we went to Vienna and we celebrated Oana’s birthday there and in the beginning of December we spent an extended weekend in Paris. During both escapades we enjoyed part of the cities that we knew more or less already […]

  • Hamburg and Strasbourg

    It was autumn 2010 when I travelled in Hamburg but it was a business trip so I didn’t see too much except the hotel(s) and a bit of the public transport. This year we’ve attended Charlotte and Alfonso’s wedding so we had some time to see more of the city. Or at least we tried, […]

  • Sardinia

    We spent one week of holidays in Sardinia, more exactly in Dorgali, a city (well … if you can say so) situated in the north-east part of the island. We chose this destination because I read that if you are into mountaineering and climbing you have plenty of outdoor opportunities nearby. However we didn’t want […]

  • Bruges

    As Colin Farrell tells us, Bruges “it’s in Belgium”. Last year we had a tentative of going there but a volcano kept us (plus whole Europe) on the ground and eventually this year we made it, so during the Easter miniholiday we visited this lovely, well-preserved medieval city. In this post I will share with […]

  • Eggberge

    Sunday it was great weather in the mountains and it was coming after two days of snowfall. But as you can guess the avalanche danger was also high, so we planned our hike accordingly. In the evening before, we chose Flüelen area(Central Switzerland) as a destination and in the morning we were supposed to check […]

  • Round about Flughaffen

    Our new flat is placed in the vicinity of the Zürich Airport and believe me or not is not so noisy as expected. Luckily, our flat is not placed directly in the way of the flight runways so that we don’t get too much noise. But the airport is also a good place for doing […]

  • Kronberg

    After a long absence, we’ve been back into the mountains, this time in the Alpstein area (near Appenzell). We didn’t go for Säntis, there is still a lot of snow there but for a smaller mountain, Kronberg(1663 m). We’ve been in this area, two years ago, when we hiked between Jakobsbad and Schwägalp, so we […]

  • Freiburg (im Breisgau)

    We’ve been told that Freiburg it’s a charming city and worth a visit, is pretty close to Zürich at only two hours train ride. But besides that we went there to visit our friends Vlad and Ileana who are living there for already two years. We met them during our university studies and we shared […]

  • Tageskarte Gemeinde

    We have visitors from Romania coming to us at the end of this month. They will stay at our place and in some of the days they will discover Switzerland by travelling here and there . However, for a normal tourist, without any travel pass or reduction, the public transport tickets can become very expensive. […]
