  • Bye bye 2011

    We spent the week between Christmas and New Years together with my sister in-law and friends from Romania. During these eight days we celebrated 3 birthdays (mine, Monica’s and Raul’s) + New Years Eve + Saint Vasile and between keeping our stomachs busy we managed to do some travelling and visited some of our favorite […]

  • Bütschelegg

    This is the name of a small mountain (in fact you can call it a hill) which is placed in Bern area and it has great views to the Alpes. We didn’t want to do a high-mountain tour, there is still plenty of snow there, but we wanted to go more for a relaxing walk […]

  • The chocolate factory

    Well, we didn’t visit such a place, in fact we manufactured our own chocolate Easter bunnies thanks to André and Emilie, who invited us to participate at this tradition. I have to say I felt like visiting Willy Wonka in the “Charlie and the chocolate factory”, literally the white, brown and dark chocolate was everywhere. […]

  • 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 […]

  • First day of 2011

    … we spent it on mount Rigi. Although we woke up a little bit late after New Year’s Eve, we felt like doing something in that day, so we checked the webcams and we saw that there is good weather … but only above the clouds layer which was at about 1200m . Oana had […]

  • Happy new year !

    The last day of 2010 didn’t start too good for me and Oana. We went running early in the morning and we discovered on our way back that we lost the flat key . In the forest. With melting snow around us. And having partial sunlight (it was 7 AM) . So go back and […]

  • Hirzli

    Close to Zürich (reachable within 1hr) is Hirzli, a small mountain that “guards” the entrance to Glarus. From the top you have a nice panorama back to Zürichsee, Mittleland, Säntis, Chrufirsten, Walensee and Glarner Alps. Together with Oana, Toni, Joel and Kristina we went in this area, in a windy but warm day, enjoying the […]

  • Via ferrata Tälli

    This ferrata is the oldest in Switzerland (was opened in 1993) but of course the cables and iron rungs are up-to-date maintained The area reminds me of Dolomites, I think mostly because of the rock type. Together with Oana, Dagmar, Rolf and Chrigu we climbed this via ferrata which was a bit long (you spend […]

  • Hot-air balloon ride

    Last year Oana wanted as a(nother) birthday gift, a hot-air balloon ride But we had bad luck because the weather was not so good and we didn’t synchronized with our friends that wanted to join. So, after endless delays, in september 2010 we found the perfect day 😉 So, together with Oana, Theus and Andreea we lived […]
